Q&A on Social Psychology and Statistics

1. Explain how social psychology is different from sociology, psychology, and other subfields of psychology. Why is there a need for social psychology as a unique scientific field different from the subfields of psychology?

2. We encounter various types of statistics on a daily basis; some are correlational (nonexperimental) and others are causational (experimental). Describe how these two methods differ. Using an example of a statistic from a commercial, political group, or other day to day forum, explain how the statistic was used to support a specific claim. Develop a hypothesis that could be studied to make the statistic more reliable and valid. Explain why.
