## Statistical Decisions Model Paper

The following is needed in paper form… no other needs to be done even though there are options listed.  Must be APA format.
Statistical Decisions Model
It is clear from the material in this course that descriptive and inferential statistics play a critical role in research in the behavioral and social sciences. Since you will further your education via coursework and application in your respective fields, it is important to reflect on the knowledge you have gained and its applicability to your future in your chosen profession. Utilizing all that you have learned and been exposed to in this course, write a paper or presentation providing an overview of your knowledge of basic and inferential statistics, specifically discussing how you would go about deciding upon the appropriate statistical tests to use for a study.
Include the following in your assignment:

Create and present a decision tree, outline, or other model that includes a series of questions to help someone decide what statistical test is appropriate for a study. Consider the number, type, and scale of measurement of the variables, as well as what you may want to know about the variables (e.g., relationship, difference, etc.). This may be presented as a chart, table, mindmap, or other visual representation, or simply formatted as an outline.
Explain the steps involved in the model and how you created this model for making statistical decisions. What were the easiest and most difficult parts of this process?
Describe two different studies of interest to you. (Note: Neither study should be one that you focused on in any of the assignments during the course.) Include the following in the description:

Research Question  List the research question for each study.
Hypotheses  List the statistical notation and written explanations for the null and alternative hypotheses for each study.
Variables  Identify the variables and each of their attributes: discrete or continuous, quantitative or categorical, scale of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio), and independent or dependent.

Demonstrate how you would utilize the statistical decisions model you created to choose the appropriate, specific test(s) for each study. What is your conclusion using this model? Did the model lead you to the correct test(s)? If not, how do you know and what changes might need to be made to the model?
Why might a statistical decisions model be useful in statistics and research methods? What are its limitations?
What did you learn or gain from creating this model and applying it to the study of interest? How might you use this model in the future?

The format for this presentation can take the form of a paper. The paper should be a minimum of 2100 to 2800 words long (excluding title and references pages) and include a title page, introduction, conclusion, and references page. APA formatting should be used for the paper. Utilize at least four resources for this paper, which should be cited accordingly. You can use PowerPoint, video presentation with visual aids, or other format preapproved by the instructor.

## Choose one of the theories that we have learned during the course of this class that you can apply in order to take a health-related action

Now that you have almost completed this course, your last step is putting together all of the elements to create an intervention program. For this assignment: Select an infectious disease, chronic disease, or a topic in public health. You may refer to the American Public Health Association page for the most important issues and problems: https://www.apha.org/topics-and-issues Conduct a short literature review of this topic for the target population you have chosen. You may want to first research and find out where and among which group the issue is the most prevalent. Choose one of the theories that we have learned during the course of this class that you can apply in order to take a health-related action. Refer to your text on various intervention strategies we have learned. Select at least two to three strategies that you can apply that will foster the changes you want to measure. For each intervention, provide an example of how it can be used, and be sure to include a brief description of each intervention along with a rationale for using the intervention. Discuss the types of evaluation you will apply to measure the immediate and long-tem effectiveness of your proposed strategies. What are the roles of social determinants in promoting health, health disparities, and health equity related to this issue? Your paper should be five to seven pages in length (excluding cover page and reference page), and should have between four and six references. Your textbook can be one of your sources. Use APA (6th ed.) format to style your paper and to cite your sources. Your sources should be integrated into the paragraphs. Use internal citations pointing to evidence in the literature and supporting your ideas. You will need to include a reference page listing those sources.
