When research focuses on a new phenomenon of interest, descriptive statistics are often used to assist in better defining the variable. For example, road rage disorder is not an officially recognized disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), even though it may be possible to find statistics related to this interesting phenomenon.
For this posting, search psychology journals or government-based Web sites to find statistically presented information on a psychological situation that is new or controversial. Suggestions include the following (pick one):
-Road rage
-Bipolar depression
-Electroconvulsive therapy for the treatment of depression
-Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) related to combat veterans
-Pornography addiction
Summarize the information that you find and critically evaluate the statistics presented. Do the statistics help us better understand these issues? Why or why not?
