Sample text

Whom should we include in our research study? indd 17 10/06/13 1:21 PM abnormalities of behavior. If we wanted to study people with panic disorder, a first step would be to determine criteria such as those provided in the current DSM for identifying people affected with this clinical disorder. We would then need to find people who fit our criteria. Ideally, we would study everyone in the world who met our criteria because these people constitute our population of interest. This, of course, is impossible to do, so instead we would try to get a representative sample of people who are drawn from this underlying population.

Both of these alternatives are clearly absurd. Much more likely is that some unknown third variable might be causing both events to happen. This is known as the third variable problem. What might the third variable be in this example? After a moment’s reflection, you might realize that a very plausible third variable is hot summer weather. Ice cream consumption increases in the summer months. So, too, does the number of people who drown because more people swim during the summer than at any other time.

To avoid the problems inherent in just focusing on statistical significance, and to facilitate comparison of results across different studies (which invariably have different sample sizes), researchers often report a statistic called the effect size. The effect size reflects the size of the association between two variables independent of the sample size. An effect size of zero means there is no association between the variables. indd 20 10/06/13 1:21 PM is very valuable when we want to compare the strength of findings across different studies.
