module 7 dq 1 response to Corie
The unit analysis is the who and the what that is being studied (Lewis-Beck, Bryman and Futing Liao, 2004). Since the unit analysis is the who or the what being studied in this specific example the unit analysis would be the physician’s behaviors. The goal of the study is to be able to build specific behaviors into a medical preparation program in order to make successful physicians, thus the physician’s behavior would allow the research to answer the research questions within the study. Since there are 50 video recordings for the research study, the researcher would be looking at the positive aspects of each visit between patient and doctor and code each as a behavior. I would assume that each recording would have at least five different behaviors, thus maybe looking at 250 data units. The number of data units can be adequate for the research study, but it depends on how long each recording is. In order to be accurate each visit should be similar in length to ensure that there are similar number of data units.
