Abstract Title

Stressed Out: A Survey of Income, Work Ethic, and Home Life

Abstract

As part of the requirements for experiential learning, our Spring 2018 Research Methods class has conducted an anonymous survey study. In this study, we asked a series of questions, including income, work ethic and home life. We hypothesize that 1) having animal(s) at home will reduce stress levels compared to having children at home, 2) being single is less stressful than being married, divorced, or widowed, 3) having a high work ethic will increase your stress levels, and 4) having a higher income increases stress in life. Data collection is ongoing for this project and will conclude in early March 2018.
