3.4 Ethical consideration Ethics are codes or rules which govern that practices of a profession.

It dictates how information, and clients relationships should be managed. http://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090512010712AAd3Uxp Ethical consideration is an integral and important part of the research governance process which has been established to regulate, monitor and provide quality assurance for research. http://research.ulster.ac.uk/rg/ethicalconsiderations.html An important aspect of research is the respect and consideration we show to the people who participate in the study with us. http://www.sahs.utmb.edu/pellinore/intro_to_research/wad/ethics.htm Just as ethics questions apply across the life cycle of a project, consideration of ethics should be built in throughout the proposal. When you are developing your proposal, work through the next section of the guidebook – on ethics in research design. This section is focused on what you need to include in your ethics statement, and in your assessment of risk and harm in your proposed research. http://www.ethicsguidebook.ac.uk/Writing-your-proposal-7 It is important to conduct research in line with ethical standards for a number of reasons: • In order to respect and cause no harm to the participants • As a sign of respect for other researchers and those who will use the research • It is a professional requirement particularly in some disciplines and failure to do so may result in disciplinary procedures. • It is a requirement to obtain funding. • Failing to conduct research ethically could be embarrassing or result in research (or the researcher) being dismissed or rejected by the research community. http://www.methods.manchester.ac.uk/resources/ethics/importance/index.shtml 3.5 Limitations of the study: The limitations and delimitations sections of your research proposal describe situations and circumstances that may affect or restrict your methods and analysis of research data. Limitations are influences that the researcher cannot control. They are the shortcomings, conditions or influences that cannot be controlled by the researcher that place restrictions on your methodology and conclusions. Any limitations that might influence the results should be mentioned. http://www.bcps.org/offices/lis/researchcourse/develop_writing_methodology_limitations.html

be sure to:      Describe each limitation in detailed. analysis of confounders. analysis of sub-populations.html 3.homestead. The analysis plan contains a description of the research question and what the various steps in the analysis are going to be. http://libguides.The limitations of the study are those characteristics of design or methodology that impacted or influenced the application or interpretation of the results of your study. the methodological procedures you not use (and why you will not use them). The following issues need to be considered in this process and described where applicable:       Which (subgroup of the) population is to be included in the analyses Data from which endpoint (T1. If appropriate.g. when they modify the regression coefficient of the determinant. multivariate analyses. For example. continuous or in categories) Which variables are to be investigated as potential confounders of effect modifiers and how are these variables supposed to be analysed. even if they are perhaps not (strong) confounders. etc. the population you are not studying (and why not). There are different ways of dealing with confounders. and.php?pid=83009&sid=616083 Also explain things in your research work that you are not planning to do (and why you have chosen not to do so). describe how these limitations could point to the need for further research.e. Often variables are only included as confounders if they influence the relationship between the determinant and outcome in actual fact (i. How to deal with missing values Which analyses are to be carried out in which order (e. T2. analysis of interaction effects.com/RESEarch/Module8A.6 Data analysis plan: An analysis plan should be created prior to the data analyses. Assess the impact of each limitation in relation to the overall findings and conclusions of your study. When discussing the limitations of your research.1 : Descriptive statistics: . the literature you will not review (and why not). univariate analyses. Explain why each limitation exists.edu/content.usc. http://peoplelearn.g. etc) will be used? Which (dependent and independent) variables are to be used in the analyses and how are the variables supposed to be analysed (e. Provide the reasons why each limitation could not be overcome using the method(s) chosen to gather the data [cite to other studies that had similar problems when possible].). Another frequently used method is to include all variables that have a significant relationship with the outcome. see example). Chapter 4 Result 4.

2 : Inferential Statistics:  Inferential statistics is concerned with making predictions or inferences about a population from observations and analyses of a sample. Descriptive statistics provides simple summaries about the sample and about the observations that have been made. They provide simple summaries about the sample and the measures.html 4.com/od/Statistics/a/Descriptive-inferential-statistics.socialresearchmethods. A descriptive statistic is a numerical summary of a dataset (e. http://wiki. Having only one factor makes the results of a study easily understandable.Descriptive statistics is the discipline of quantitatively describing the main features of a collection of data. http://voices. a sample). There are four types of descriptive statistics that are commonly used:     Measures of central tendency: the central or most common value.about. Inferential statistics are used to allow a researcher to make statistical inferences.statisticallysignificantconsulting.g.com/research-statistics-10305509. that is draw conclusions about the data.wikipedia.com/Q/What_is_a_descriptive_statistic Statistics in research are a way of making sense from data that has too many factors to be clearly observable.htm . Together with simple graphics analysis.answers. Measures of shape: what the data looks like. http://www. Measures of size: how many points have been analyzed. http://en.yahoo. the more factors or variables the more difficult the study becomes.htm With inferential statistics. http://sociology.com/Statistics101.net/kb/statinf. you are trying to reach conclusions that extend beyond the immediate data alone.php Inferential statistics are usually the most important part of a dissertation's statistical analysis. Measures of variability: the normal spread of values around the central value.org/wiki/Descriptive_statistics Descriptive statistics are used to describe the basic features of the data in a study. http://www. however. they form the basis of virtually every quantitative analysis of data.
