Research Methods

I need assistance on a research problem. I am practicing my dissertation process and want to be clear about my knowledge of each component of the process. The purpose of this activity is I have to design a survey instrument. I want to select an existing public domain survey from the list that corresponds to the topic of interest and use it to design my own survey instrument. The public domain surveys are:

Panel Study of Income Dynamics
National Longitudinal Surveys
Wisconsin Longitudinal Surveys
Health and Retirement Study
National Longitudinal Studies of Adolescent Health
United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service Data Sets.
The Commonwealth Fund: All Surveys
The Survey System(Calculator)

In designing the survey instrument these five areas should be included:
1.One research question and appropriate hypothesis.
2. Identify the independent and dependent variables.
3.Provide operational definitions for your independent, dependent, and any extraneous or control variables.
4. Identify the questions that address the operational definitions for the variables.
5.Determine an appropriate sampling strategy. Use the Sample Size Calculator that is The Survey System on the Creative Research Systems website to determine the overall population size, actual sample size, confidence level, and confidence interval.

The research problem is attached.
