Running head: PEER PRESSURE Peer Pressure What factors do we allow to influence us? More specifically, how does our environment play a factor in what influence us? Both of the questions asked previously correlates with how we all are peer pressured. Measuring peer pressure, itself, is what can make a notifiable difference in any social setting. Rather one would admit or reject the notion, peer pressure (positive or negative) can alter our behavior on a broad spectrum. By using a surveying method and simple random sampling, patterns can be explained in the form of descriptive statistics. By the help of a group effort, which are those in Team D, a survey was strategically constructed and distributed through social media. The population of the experiment was all of Team D’s friends on Facebook. By using a market of resources already established, administering this questionnaire to others brought forth a plethora of advantages. The diverse audience from a pool of races, ages, and religious beliefs ensure a diverse participation. Hence, the justification for using a simple random sampling (SRS). Furthermore, such a creative population of interest was easy to distinguish, based on the demographics of the survey and the participant’s responses. In retrospect, such methods warranted the best, and most impactful, way to address the population.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
