• Provide a brief (e.g., 2 paragraph) summary of the public health topic that relates to the variables within your selected dataset.
• Identify your “Statement of the Problem” (or research question). Be sure your statement or question makes mention of both the independent and dependent variables you are examining and that these variables are actually available in the dataset. (This will be important for later assignments when you complete statistical analysis.).
• Provide an Annotated bibliography which is to include:
o Sources: Four recent (less than 3 years old) primary peer-reviewed research articles that support the topic of your paper. Beyond the minimum four primary research articles, you may add additional, high-quality secondary literature (reviews or meta-analyses), and you may use websites if from a scholarly and relevant source (e.g. CDC, NCHS, etc.). Your sources must follow APA formatting.
o Annotation: For each research article, include a brief description of the study aim, the methods used, and the major findings. For each non research source, provide a concise description of the relevant key points addressed in the source. Include in the annotation a brief description of how you plan to use each source (e.g. provides statistics for the problem, etc.)
