Biostatistics

Research Methods

To do successful research, you don't need to know everything, you just need to know of one thing that isn't known.

Arthur Schawlow

That's the nature of research - you don't know what in hell you're doing.

Harold "Doc" Edgerton

If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

Albert Einstein

Scientific research is systematic, controlled, empirical, and critical investigation of natural phenomena guided by theory and hypotheses about the presumed relations among such phenomena.

Kerlinger, 1986

Problem statement, research questions, purposes, benefits Theory, assumptions, background literature Variables and hypotheses Operational definitions and measurement Research design and methodology Instrumentation, sampling Data analysis Conclusions, interpretations, recommendations

Sampling

What is your population of interest?

To whom do you want to generalize your results?

All students (18 and over) Undergraduates only Greeks Athletes Other

Sampling

A sample is a smaller (but hopefully representative) collection of units from a population used to determine truths about that population (Field, 2005) Why sample?

Resources (time, money) and workload Gives results with known accuracy that can be calculated mathematically

The sampling frame is the list from which the potential respondents are drawn

Registrars office Class rosters Must assess sampling frame errors

Types of Samples

Probability (Random) Samples

Simple random sample Systematic random sample Stratified random sample

Proportionate Disproportionate

Cluster sample

Non-Probability Samples

Convenience sample Purposive sample Quota

Sample Size

Depends on expected response rate

Average 85% for paper

FINAL SAMPLE DESIRED / .85 = SAMPLE

FINAL SAMPLE DESIRED / .25 = SAMPLE

Size of Campus <600 600-2,999 3,000-9,999 10,000-19,999 20,000-29,000 30,000 Final Desired N All students 600 700 800 900 1,000

Systematic Error or Bias: unknown or unacknowledged error created during the design, measurement, sampling, procedure, or choice of problem studied

Error tends to go in one direction

Examples: Selection, Recall, Social desirability

Random

Unrelated to true measures

Example: Momentary fatigue

Reliability

The extent to which a test is repeatable and yields consistent scores Affected by random error/bias

Validity

The extent to which a test measures what it is supposed to measure A subjective judgment made on the basis of experience and empirical indicators Asks "Is the test measuring what you think its measuring? Affected by systematic error/bias

In order to be valid, a test must be reliable; but reliability does not guarantee validity.

Biostatistics

It is commonly believed that anyone who tabulates numbers is a statistician. This is like believing that anyone who owns a scalpel is a surgeon.

Types of Statistics

Descriptive statistics

Describe the basic features of data in a study Provide summaries about the sample and measures

Inferential statistics

Investigate questions, models, and hypotheses Infer population characteristics based on sample Make judgments about what we observe
