<span itemprop=”name”>PSY 104 Week 5 DQ 1 Statistical Information</span>
Statistical Information. Provide one statistic on the occurrence of each of the following:
One of the four parenting types
Biological differences in development
Effects on development of social learning
Explain how these statistics relate to adolescent development. At least one statistical fact is to be about people in a country other than the United States. Locate the statistical data from places other than the textbook and do not use .com, wiki, or blog information. Additionally, do not use psychology.com or ezinearticles.com. Be sure to provide the source for each of your facts. The required and recommended articles/websites for the week are good starting- points for finding information.
For example, I might give the following information for social learning:
Some have estimated that 40% of children or more are left alone at home (AACAP, 2010).
By their senior year in high school, 63% of adolescents have had sexual intercourse (WebMD, 2011).
For mental and physical disabilities, I might give this information:
One obsessive behavior that can start in adolescence is trichotilomania. About 1% of the people in
America have signs of this disorder (AACAP, 2010).
Of course, I would also have to provide statistical information on parenting types, abuse, and biological differences. Your initial response should be between 200-250 words.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
