Week 1 Forum- Choosing a Topic
The point of the discussion is that other students will ask you questions or make suggestions that may help you define your project better. Your instructor will also interact with each of you individually in this module and the next to help you refine your topic. Which means, remember to check your thread regularly!
Topic: Domestic Violence
As you present your topic in this discussion, think about how you would study it. What is your research question and your theory behind it? What variables can you use to measure correlations that are connected to your research question? In your original post, tell the class what your topic is, phrasing it as a research question. Your research question should preferably be more general and open-ended than a hypothesis. Then, identify variables which you have found in the GSS dataset (be sure to identify the variable name AND the question asked in the survey). Explain why you chose these variables for your project and why you think there is a correlation or a relationship.
