Project paper and Feasibility Paper: Week 2
As preparation for the final research paper, formulate a theory about the correlation between measurable independent variables (causes) and one measurable dependent variable (the effect). Be sure to have at least two independent variables for proposed research paper. The topic proposal should include the following four items which serve as the foundation for the final research paper after instructor feedback is given. 1) Purpose Statement In one paragraph, state the correlation and identify the primary independent variables.State the correlation as in the following:“Thirtyfour percent of young women become pregnant at least once before they reach the age of 20  about 820,000 a year. Eight in ten of these teen pregnancies are unintended and 79 percent are to unmarried teens” (Teen Pregnancy Stats, Facts, and Prevention, 2004).“A sexually active teen who does not use contraception has a 90 percent chance of teen pregnancy within one year” (Teen Pregnancy Stats, Facts, and Prevention, 2004). “The dependent variable, single mothers, is determined by independent variables single parent upbringing, education level, and religious faith.”Identify and defend the “primary” independent variable, or the variable believed to have the strongest impact on the dependent variable:“The most important independent variable in this relationship is single parent upbringing because a child’s influences will determine their decisions later in life.” 2) Definition of Variables For each variable, write a single definition paragraph talking about the variable. Paragraphs should be in this order: dependent variable, primary independent variable, and three independent variables.The primary independent variable for single mothers is whether an individual is raised in a single parent home. This independent variable mostly affects teenagers. “75% of teenage pregnancies are adolescents from single parent homes” (A Generation at Risk)....

...differs from that obtained from Stepwise and Backward Elimination Method. It is not hard to understand this phenomenon: Since for the Stepwise/Backward Elimination method, Fstatistic plays an important role in selecting a variable: the Fstatistic for a variable to be added must be significant at the SLENTRY level, the Fstatistic for a variable to be removed must be significant at the SLSTAY level. While the MaxR method selects variables depending...
