QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH TITLE

Title

The effectiveness of home visits by specialist nurses in


preventing infections for those patients undergoing home
immunoglobulin therapy as opposed to those not
receiving such home visits.

This title immediately tells us a lot about the proposed


research study:
We now know what we are looking at - how effective
are home visits in preventing infections to those
having their therapy at home rather than in hospital.
We know the subjects - those having therapy at home
(in this case it is concerned with immunoglobulin
replacement therapy for those people with an immune
deficiency.
We can probably guess that it is going to be a
quantitative study (survey study, rather than
experimental), as it is comparing two variables - those
not receiving home visits and those who are receiving
home visits.
Consequently, we will want a large sample.
Data collection will involve comparing the rates of
infection between the two groups.
Data analysis will be statistical.
So you can see how important a clear and full title is at
this stage - we now know a lot about the research without
actually having read the proposal.

Relationship Between volunteering and General Happiness. [Research question]: Does volunteering
promote personal happiness?

Research Topics

I would like to research how the increasing number of registered nonprofits are affecting giving trends in the United States.
Specifically I would like to see if different age groups are showing different trends regarding their giving in response to the i
number of charities.
Perhaps the National Center for Charitable Statistics , the Current Population Survey volunteer supplement (2009
the General Social Survey, both through ICPSR

I would like to focus on Volunteerism in North Carolina for my research project. However, if you think that there might be lim
or research on just North Carolina, I would feel fine with looking at the United States instead. I want to examine who volunte
(age, gender, race, religion, etc), the types of places people volunteer, and how often people volunteer
CPANDA: http://www.cpanda.org/cpanda/data is great for volunteer data (in the arts though), or maybe the Nation
for Charitable Statistics or the Current Population Survey volunteer supplement (2009) or General Social Survey,
through ICPSR

[Research topic]: Relationship Between volunteering and General Happiness. [Research question]: Does volunteering pr
personal happiness? To do this research, I will examine how a focus on time versus money can lead to two distinct mind-s
affect consumers' willingness to donate to charitable causes.
Perhaps the General Social Survey, through ICPSR or the Current Population Survey volunteer supplement (2009

I believe I am going to do my research project on the Unemployment rate affecting the Crime rate at the state level.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics compiles state unemployment rates, and some tables can be downloaded in .xls fo
one wanted to study only North Carolina, the Employment Security Commissions Labor Force Statistics provide
the NC County level (or for the State for a number of years). Crime rates are in either the Federal Uniform Crime
Reports (Crime in the United States) or the state-level Crime in North Carolina

The relationship between the unemployment rate and crime rate with the hypothesis that there is a positive relationship in t
increase in unemployment and crime rates
The Bureau of Labor Statistics compiles state unemployment rates, and some tables can be downloaded in .xls fo

the NC County level (or for the State for a number of years). Crime rates are in either the Federal Uniform Crime
Reports (Crime in the United States) or the state-level Crime in North Carolina

I would like to look at the relationship between the educational attainment of a [states ] population and crime rates in states
Educational attainment can be found on a state level in the Bureau of the Census American FactFinder (also on a
level if that is ones interest). To go back in time, the 2000 Census and 1990 Census will provide the data. Crime
in either the Federal Uniform Crime Reports (Crime in the United States) or the state-level Crime in North Carolina

I would like to research response times to disasters, by both governmental and nonprofit agencies, and examine how the
population perceived their response. By exploring this topic I would be able to determine what sets agencies apart in respo
disasters and what characteristics are present in a well handled response.

I would love to do a FEMA related project, I have serious questions as to the availability of data. I have found two datasets
relate to applications for mitigation efforts and FEMA's acceptance/rejection and amount of total money requested that FEM
contributed. I am turning over the idea that perhaps FEMA grants have gone up since 9/11 or even Katrina, but am not sure
is enough data to support this.

The relationship between childhood poverty and the age of the mother (at the time of birth).
We didnt find an easy dataset. Perhaps something could be done with the Bureau of the Census Public Use Mic
Sample iPUMS dataset focusing on female headed households with children. The Census Bureaus American Co
Survey gives summary tables of number and percent of single female-headed households with children under 5 o
18 that are below the poverty level, and the number and percent of single female householders under age 25 that
below the poverty level, but none by age at birth of first child. The North Carolina BABY book gives number of bir
age of Mother (by county for North Carolina) but includes no income information.

Hypothesis: The unionization of an organization is negatively related to its productivity. The idea behind the hypothesis is t
organizations with strong union membership, financial support, and stronger collective bargaining rights dampen innovation
inflexibility within management. This leads to lower productivity.
National Right to Work Website may have something . It looks like raw Union statistics are in
BLS: http://www.bls.gov/news.release/union2.nr0.htm Also productivity: http://www.bls.gov/data/#productivity But
found a way to link them. The General Social Survey, through ICPSR has some labor union variables.

The rate of suicides in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) teens. I want to exam [bullying] and other possible
as well like parental pressure, religious pressure, internal conflict, etcetera.
The WISQARS database http://www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars/facts.html
http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/pub/youth_suicide.html is supposed to have details on suicides, but not LG
http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/ICPSR/studies/28201?q=bullying&archive=ICPSR&sortBy=7&paging.rows=2
school crime and bullying but not LGBT. Dont think this is available except in many articles on the topic and the a
writers surveys.

I would like for my topic of research to be North Carolina SAT scores. Is there a relationship between County, family income
ethnicity and SAT scores?
The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction in its annual SAT Report gives summary information about th
topics, but does not include a datafile. The College Board, who administers the SAT, also has publications addres
topic. There is a section of the Web site to request data, but it would take several weeks, IRB approval, and would
probably cost. And there is no guarantee the College Board would release the data.

Topic Question: How do state environmental policies vary? Which then brings upWhat states have more strict environme
policies? What states are less restrictive in correcting environmental pollution? Why?
CIESEN has quite a bit about environmental policies that leads to Yale and specialized databases Like this
one: http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/es/epi/ Heres the general
link http://www.ciesin.columbia.edu/sub_guide.html#Anchor-Environmenta-58066 The EPA may have something

Research topic: Will having a polling location on, or near, a college campus affect the likelihood of a college student to vote
election? Over the past few years there has been a lot of controversy in relation to the location of early voting sites and reg
polling places. I would like to study the impact of the location of polling places in relation to the proportion of college/univers
students that actually cast votes.
Perhaps the American National Election Study through ICPSR or the General Social Survey, also through ICPSR

The Relationship between Stress Levels at work and Job Satisfaction


Perhaps the General Social Survey, through ICPSR

Correlation between age and successful completion of bachelor's degree. To study whether traditional students or older stu
have a higher rate of graduation within 4 years.
The National Center for Education Statistics conducts the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study. You ma
able to pull out a dataset with the PowerStats option.
I would like to use a database I have access to at the fire department where I volunteer. Each time we go on a call, we rec
types, number of apparatus that go to the call, time, address, people who went on the call and times of dispatch, en route, a
and cleared. I would like to look at factors that contribute to our service on these calls. As of now, I would like to focus on d
from our station, time of call (more specifically, we sleep in another building, so how much does this increase our response
and whether our response times are faster during the academic year when we have our Davidson College student voluntee
us. I am thinking it makes most sense to focus on the calls for 2011 and specifically on fire rather than fire and EMS calls si
are rated by ISO for insurance purposes based on our response times to fire calls.

What is the relationship between study time and exam score of amongst Grade
11 Students of TNHS for SY. 2016-2017

What leads some students to be more successful readers than other students?

Can I predict who is likely to have reading difficulties?


(Correlation/regression)

What is the best method of teaching reading? (Experiment)

What are the norms for a population for the development of reading skill?
(Descriptive)

What are the conditions of reading instruction and learning in todays


classrooms? (Qualitative)
