Sampling techniques and dataset

I need assistance in finding a dataset that corresponds to the survey instrument attached. What do you see from the cases from the dataset, using the sampling technique and selected sample size. I have to report (a)The new sample (b)the research questions and hypothesis (c) The independent and dependent variables and (d) extraneous or control variable.
What is the sampling technique and the process used to prepare the dataset. What challenges were faced in preparing the new dataset? Would you consider the sampling technique reliable and valid? What statistical technique can be used to answer the research question.

Solution Preview

Hi, I hope this solution gets to you in time. I thought about the best way to answer this solution and to me, it meant really coming up with a design. It is well and good to make assumptions but to answer this question, we really have to have some kind of research structure. So what should we do? Let's recall what you need to do:

(a) The new sample
(b) The research questions and hypothesis
(c) The independent and dependent variables and
(d) Extraneous or control variable

Then you need to answer these questions:

What is the sampling technique and the process used to prepare the dataset. What challenges were faced in preparing the new dataset? Would you consider the sampling technique reliable and valid? What statistical technique can be used to answer the research question.

It seems straightforward then - answer all these questions in this particular stage of your assignment. That is what we do below plus extra information. Just let me know if you need extra help on this.

Sincerely,

Proposed Research

Previously, I have laid out the initial foundations for my proposed research. I related that I intend to utilize the principles offered by the 'Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) to establish a relevant Panel Study of Families in Poverty with a special focus on their ability to provide support to the education of their children. as I stated earlier, I intend to conduct an annual panel study using family and individual volunteers from the community that I am servicing as a social support worker. This research will be of importance to my duties and to the purposes of my agency as it is our goal to look into the inner workings of the social dynamics of the ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides information, assistance and advise in tackling the task (see above) on the topic of doing research, in particular on sampling techniques and datasets appropriate to a research problem (see attached).
