Exercise 7

Design a study using secondary data to test the hypothesis that colleges with "strict" alcohol policies have fewer alcohol related problems than those with less strict policies. Be sure to control for variables such as the size of the college, whether it is located in a rural or urban area, the region of the country in which it is located, whether it is a public or private institution, whether it is affiliated with a religious organization, whether most students commute to campus or live on campus, etc. Be specific and detailed as to how the variables are conceptualized and defined, what indicators will be measured, and how data will be collected to measure the indicators.
