For your paper, you will run an analysis on data you have gathered or acquired.

For your paper, you will run an analysis on data you have gathered or acquired. There are two sections for this paper. In the first section you will present your results (what do the numbers say). You will need tables or figures to show your results (place these at the end of your paper, give each table or figure its own page and label them in numeric order, but indicate in your paper where they belong see the samples for how to do this). You must include as your first table, a table of descriptive statistics (mean, SD, minimum, maximum) for all your variables. Failure to do so will result in an automatic 5 point penalty. You will also want to discuss which variables are significant (also mention which ones fail to reach significance), the direction of the significant variables, and the substantive impact of your variables (if your method allows you to do so).
The second section is your conclusion. Summarize what you have found, why your finding matters, and the implication of your findings. Implications can range from empirical to normative. You may also talk new questions your findings raise (new answers only lead to new questions).
