Researchers often go through several stages of data analysis and often conduct many different statistical tests to examine the data. For this discussion, find a journal article and analyze the results section of the article. Your article may use any type of research method, but it should not be a review article. Answer the following questions in your analysis.

1. What were the independent and dependent variables in the study? (Note that independent and dependent variables would only need to be identified in experimental designs).

2. Summarize the statistical measures the authors used and what the findings were.

3. Were the results statistically significant? Explain your answer.

For this first discussion board, I would like you to access one of the sites below and filter for thefts from vehicles (TFVE) in the last 90 days (or however long you choose). As part of your analysis, I would like you to construct a discussion thread to tell us about what you observed in terms of where they are occurring (and “so what” about the location), the time and other factors you can observe from the maps that are critical to your analysis.

I would like you to then come up with some solutions you feel are appropriate to not only solve the problem but deter it. Please also discuss what information is missing and why that would impact your approach to the analysis. Feel free to….
