Once you have your hypotheses, go through the scientific method and statistical process to sample and answer the question.

Your conclusion should be entirely data driven, with the implications clear. The focus is on selection of a topic and identification of the tools used to solve the problem and/or test the hypothesis. If the topic is not appropriate or needs to be streamlined, the instructor will proved feedback to assure the topic can become a viable final project. you will submit a 2–3-page paper summarizing your topic selection. Why did you select this topic? What is the significance? Which statistical method(s) will be used? The feedback provided by the instructor should be applied to your final research paper.

Notes to the assignment
The report should be structured to acceptable industry standard; including title
and contents page, headings, Harvard-style references and page numbers.
The reports must be written in your own words and any quotations from
documents or websites must be clearly shown as quotations – plagiarism and
extensive quotation from published documents will lead to a deduction of marks.
All the basic information is to be found in the Blackboard lecture notes and
handouts accompanying the course, but you should read further in order to
widen and deepen your knowledge and understanding, and also research via the
web, in particular for any recent changes in the law.
In order to achieve a 2:1 grade or above you need to present the assignment in
a professional manner which might be of use to a member of the construction
and property professions. This does not require anything other than writing in
plain English within a recognised report structure.
