Use Dr. Finger’s Chart of Statistical Tests and your texts from GNUR-528 Biostatistics and Epidemiology course to determine what statistical tests you would select to demonstrate the answer(s) to your problem, subproblems, and research question.  Be sure and refer to the studies related to your topic found in OCLS.  Post at least one test to use on your data along with your rationale.

Maladaptive Response and the Female Factor

Maladaptive responses to SLE might be altered image issues, fatigue related to chronic inflammation, and impaired skin integrity related to skin rash.  Women are ten times more likely to develop SLE than men.  African Americans have the highest risk, followed by Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans.  The primary age to develop SLE is between 20-40 years old (the childbearing years) with the most prevalent age being around 30 (Lewis, Bucher, Heitkemper, & Harding, 2017).
