    Milgram Study Follow-up Research study

    Sample Quest Question:

    A researcher, interested in the effects of unemployment on alcohol abuse, mailed questionnaires to the homes of workers recently laid off from a gold mine. Each participant was sent 10 questionnaires, one each month for 10 consecutive months. Participants were asked to anonymously fill out the questionnaires and return them. The questionnaires contained items pertaining to the amount of alcohol consumed daily before and after the layoffs occurred. Half of the subjects completed and returned all 10 questionnaires. For those individuals who returned all questionnaires, there was a positive correlation between alcohol consumption and length of unemployment, r=.87 . That is, more alcohol was consumed as the period of unemployment progressed. In his report the researcher stated that "the conditions of unemployment produce a tendency for people to increase their alcoholic intake." Do you accept the researcher's conclusions? Why or why not? Explain.
