Find two peer-reviewed articles that provide examples of quantitative studies relevant to your research topic. These do not have to be exact to your topic or use data from the General Social Survey. These articles will form your literature review for your final project, although an abbreviated version in comparison to what you would use in a “real-life” research project. In these instances, it would be expected of you to exhaust as much of the existing literature as you could as you build context for your own research.
Explain their findings based on the statistical data they present. Answer the following questions:
What test of significance did the researchers use? This can usually be found in a discussions section or reviewed in the methods section of a research article.
What were their findings? These will be reviewed with detail in the discussion and findings sections.
What was their research question and what were their findings with regards to their statistics?
NOTE-. Please write about the statistical procedures NOT the topic of the study.
