1. A research problem was identified: Low-income mothers do not bring children in for immunizations to a neighborhood clinic. Write the purpose for a research study related to this problem. I don't understand this.

What do I want to find out?

Example 1: Quantitative Design

For example, you might want to find out whether low-income mothers actually have a higher rate of not bringing children in for immunization to a neighborhood clinic than people in a higher income bracket.

Purpose statement: The purpose of your study is to determine if there is a relationship between lower-income and not bringing children in for immunizations to a neighborhood clinic, with respect to promoting immunizations of children. More specifically, the study is designed to address the following research question (s): Do low-income mothers not bring children in for immunizations to a neighborhood clinic at a higher rate than higher-income mothers?

Quantitative Experimental Design: To test this, you would set up a quantitative experiment (Ho: There is no difference; Ha: There is a difference between the two groups), setting up two groups (low-income mothers x high income mothers), collecting data (immunization rates), statistically comparing (t-test) the average rate of the two populations. If you find a significant difference between the two groups, you could conclude that low-income mothers do not bring children in for immunization to a neighborhoods clinic at a higher rate (70%, perhaps) than do mother's in a higher socio-economic ...
