Scientific Questions Being Studied
The specific scientific question I want to study is "What are the associations between income level, access to healthcare, and lifestyle on rates of hypertension among African Americans" This question is important because the rate of hypertension is higher in African Americans than in other races/ethnicities. I plan to investigate the relationship between income level, access to healthcare, and lifestyle and the increased rate of hypertension within the community.
I plan on using a quantitative method for my research, and I will use datasets available through All of Us.
I anticipate studying and finding a possible association between income level, access to healthcare, lifestyle, and the increased rate of hypertension within the community to develop a way to develop ways to mitigate the issues.
