In this unit, you will be completing your research project. Using the outline you completed in Unit II and the resources and information from the annotated bibliography in Unit III, compose your final research paper. Remember, from earlier units, that your paper should be focused on public health and include biostatistics-related content, including information related to the following elements learned in the course:
- population and sample size;
- hypothesis testing;
- research instruments;
- statistical tests and results;
- multivariable methods, including the principles of these methods;
- examples of dependent and independent variables; and
- any other pertinent issues related to course material.
Be sure to include an introduction section that gives the topic and purpose of your paper and a final section that includes any recommendations and your conclusion of the topic. If you need to brush up on writing an introduction and conclusion, click here for a tutorial on introductions and conclusions created by the CSU Writing Center.

Your final paper must be at least four pages in length, and you must use at least the five resources included in your annotated bibliography. Additional resources may be used if needed. Any information from a resource must be cited and referenced in APA format, and your paper must be formatted in accordance with APA guidelines.
