The effectiveness of home visits by specialist nurses in
preventing infections for those patients undergoing home
immunoglobulin therapy as opposed to those not
receiving such home visits.

This title immediately tells us a lot about the proposed
research study:
 We now know what we are looking at - how effective
are home visits in preventing infections to those
having their therapy at home rather than in hospital.
 We know the subjects - those having therapy at home
(in this case it is concerned with immunoglobulin
replacement therapy for those people with an immune
 We can probably guess that it is going to be a
quantitative study (survey study, rather than
experimental), as it is comparing two variables - those
not receiving home visits and those who are receiving
home visits.
 Consequently, we will want a large sample.

and the number and percent of single female householders under age 25 that below the poverty level. The Bureau of Labor Statistics compiles state unemployment rates. Perhaps something could be done with the Bureau of the Census’ Public Use Mic Sample iPUMS dataset focusing on female headed households with children. We didn’t find an easy dataset. The idea behind the hypothesis is t organizations with strong union membership. the Employment Security Commission’s Labor Force Statistics provide the NC County level (or for the State for a number of years). the Employment Security Commission’s Labor Force Statistics provide the NC County level (or for the State for a number of years). I have serious questions as to the availability of data. by both governmental and nonprofit agencies. and some tables can be downloaded in . The Census Bureau’s American Co Survey gives summary tables of number and percent of single female-headed households with children under 5 o 18 that are below the poverty level. I have found two datasets relate to applications for mitigation efforts and FEMA's acceptance/rejection and amount of total money requested that FEM contributed. and some tables can be downloaded in . but am not sure is enough data to support this. and stronger collective bargaining rights dampen innovation .

I am turning over the idea that perhaps FEMA grants have gone up since 9/11 or even Katrina. I would love to do a FEMA related project. By exploring this topic I would be able to determine what sets agencies apart in respo disasters and what characteristics are present in a well handled response. through ICPSR or the Current Population Survey volunteer supplement (2009 I believe I am going to do my research project on the Unemployment rate affecting the Crime rate at the state level.
