What impact each type of relationship may have on a research


Discussion Question

To prepare for this Discussion:

• Research Methods for the Behavioral Sciences. Pay attention to the descriptions and examples of linear and nonlinear relationships, positive and negative linear relationships, and curvilinear relationships.

• Consider how these relationships are determined and what impact each type of relationship may have on a researcher's ability to make predictions.

• Using the Walden Library, select and review two or three articles on criminal recidivism, violent crime, or domestic violence in which the variables have positive and negative linear relationships.

• Consider the implications if the variables had a curvilinear relationship instead.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post a description of two variables that have a positive linear relationship and two variables that have a negative linear relationship in the research articles you reviewed. Then, explain the implications on the studies if each of those variables had a curvilinear relationship instead.

The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
