Results and Conclusion of the Research Process HCS/465 Results and Conclusion of the Research Process The title of this research study is Stressful life events and the tripartite model: Relations to anxiety and depression in adolescent females. The study was investigated by Jeremy Fox, Leslie Halpern, Julie Ryan, and Kelly Lowe (2011). This paper will expand on previous information reported, which included the background and methodology of the research study. This paper will include the results: including data collection methods and data analysis procedures, and the conclusion: including the study findings, weaknesses, strengths, limitations, and whether the findings support the hypotheses.

Data Analysis Procedure: Ways the data analysis procedures are appropriate for testing the hypotheses The researchers proposed three hypotheses: 1) High stressful life events and high NA should be related to symptoms of both anxiety and depression. Low PA, however, should be uniquely related to symptoms of depression. 2) NA should moderate the relationship between stressful life events and symptoms of both anxiety and depression. 3) PA should moderate the relationship between stressful life events and symptoms. (Fox et al., 2010, p. 46) After translating the collected data into facts and studying the association between the variables, the hypotheses were tested. It was found that the data analysis procedures to be appropriate to help answer the hypotheses. However, it was found there was mixed evidence for the first hypotheses, which was concerning tripartite models structure. The data supported the other two hypotheses (Fox et al., 2010). Data: Key distinctions between qualitative and quantitative data Qualitative data deals with descriptions, which it can be observed not measured. Qualitative data analysis is more for exploratory purposes and usually is done through interviews (Henninger, 2009). Quantitative data deals with numbers, data that can be measured. Qualitative data analysis allows researchers to test their hypotheses and is done through surveys (Henninger, 2009). This was a quantitative research study. However,
