Think about the relationship between and independent variable and a dependent variable that I propose and do the following:

  • Suggest THREE control variables that you would need for each example (do NOT tell me how you would measure them)
  • Each time you suggest one, explain WHY you think it is necessary to control for it.
    • In the above example you would say, “Older people are more likely to be Republican and your partisanship is likely to affect whether you vote for Trump.”

I uploaded the document for the assignment that will explain much more. It is a controlling assignment for research in politics class.
