Option 1: Are dog owners more physically active than non-dog-owners? Background Information Many Canadian families own pets, and dogs are among the most popular choice of pet. A number of studies (e.g., Vormbrock & Grossberg, 1988) suggest that pet ownership is beneficial to the owner’s physical and mental health. One possible benefit is that taking a dog for a daily outdoor walk allows the dog-owner to get some physical exercise. The purpose of Assignment 3B, Option 1 is to test the hypothesis that dog owners are more physically active than non-dog-owners. Instructions 1.Write 15 to 20 items that measure your respondent’s physical activities and dog-ownership for a questionnaire to be sent out by postal mail. Be sure to consider such issues as the type of questions (open-ended or closed-ended), clarity of questions, order of questions, and so on as discussed in the survey research unit. You are expected to use previous research as reference for your measurement of the variables. 2.Submit your assignment using the assignment dropbox. You are expected to: a.state the population and the sampling technique used. Explain why that population is of interest to you and how you select the sample from your population. b.list your question items (and response alternatives) in the same order as they will appear in the questionnaire. c.provide the rationale for your choice of question type and order of questions, and so on. d.provide your expected results. Assuming that: (1) you have collected data from a representative sample of the population to which you want to generalize the result, and (2) the results show that dog owners are indeed more physically active than non-dog-owners, can you conclude that dog ownership is responsible for higher physical activity level? Explain why you can or cannot arrive at this conclusion.
