For this Assignment, you will explore the Final Project dataset provided in the Course…

For this Assignment, you will explore the Final Project dataset provided in the Course Information tab and select one of the following diseases (dependent variables): dengue, HIV, coronary heart disease, diabetes, or lung cancer. You will examine the other (independent) variables available in the dataset. They include demographic variables (i.e., gender, age, race/ethnicity, income, education, insurance, urban residence, and region), clinical risk factors (i.e., BMI and cholesterol), and behavioral risk factors (i.e., alcohol and tobacco consumption, injection drug use, condom use, exercise, and fruit/vegetable intake). You will then develop a problem statement (or research question) related to your disease and 1-2 independent variables of your choice. Finally, you will begin to research this disease in the literature.


The Assignment: 2–3 pages)

Provide a brief (e.g., 2-paragraph) background summary of the disease (dependent variable) you have selected from the Final Project dataset.

  • Identify and provide a brief description of the independent and dependent variables you will consider for your Final Project.
  • Run and save the Data Dictionary from the Final Project SPSS datafile. Include the output as an appendix to your assignment.
  • Identify your “Statement of the Problem” (or research question). Be sure your statement or question makes mention of both the independent and dependent variables you are examining. (This will be important for later assignments when you complete statistical analysis using the Final Project dataset.).
  • Provide an Annotated bibliography which is to include:
    • Sources: Four recent (less than 3 years old) primary peer-reviewed research articles related to the disease of your paper. Beyond the minimum four primary research articles, you may add additional, high-quality secondary literature (reviews or meta-analyses), and you may use websites if from a scholarly and relevant source (e.g. CDC, NCHS, etc.). Your sources must follow APA formatting.
    • Annotation: For each research article, include a brief description of the study aim, the methods used, and the major findings. For each non research source, provide a concise description of the relevant key points addressed in the source. Include in the annotation a brief description of how you plan to use each source (e.g. provides statistics for the problem, etc.)
  • Submit your Assignment by Day 7.
