<deviat> Major Deviations from the Sample Design

Description: Information indicating correspondence as well as discrepancies between the sampled units (obtained) and available statistics for the population (age, sex-ratio, marital status, etc.) as a whole.


<deviat>The suitability of Ohio as a research site reflected its similarity to the United States 
as a whole. The evidence extended by Tuchfarber (1988) shows that Ohio is representative of the United 
States in several ways: percent urban and rural, percent of the population that is African American, 
median age, per capita income, percent living below the poverty level, and unemployment rate. Although 
results generated from an Ohio sample are not empirically generalizable to the United States, they may 
be suggestive of what might be expected nationally.</deviat>
