Paper should be writers personal statement in response to the speech below: Cong

Paper should be writers personal statement in response to the speech below:
Congressional committees have several important responsibilities, including reviewing and considering legislation, holding hearings, conducting investigations, and overseeing the operations of executive branch agencies within their jurisdiction by conducting oversight hearings and reviewing the budget requests of these agencies. Committees need to be able to fulfill these important responsibilities without undue influence from political parties.

Ideally, committees should have autonomy to decide which bills to forward to a floor vote based on their merits, rather than following the dictates of party leaders. This allows committees to thoroughly review legislation and consider the views of all stakeholders, including experts in relevant fields and members of the public, before making a recommendation. It also allows committees to serve as a check on the legislative process, ensuring that only well-crafted and thoughtful legislation makes it to the floor for a vote.

This is not to say that political parties do not play a role in the operation of congressional committees. Since committee chairs belong to the majority party, they control the committee’s agenda. However, committees are not beholden to the wishes of their party leadership, and members are free to vote their conscience – or at least, in their personal interest – on committee matters. Committee chairs and ranking members are expected to lead their committees in a fair and impartial manner. Generally, the role of political parties in congressional committees should be limited to providing a framework for organizing and prioritizing the work of the committee, but it is ultimately up to the members of the committee to decide how to proceed on specific issues.

This seems to be the common practice; legislators have autonomy to act apart from party discipline. David Mayhew noted in 1974 that legislators’ individual actions often mirror the actions individuals solely focused on reelection would take rather than based solely on party membership. (2000; Mayhew, 2004, p. 14). Legislators can and do deviate from party discipline if constituents favor a different position. A career legislator is likely to take the more salable position over the party one to help reelection chances. (Mayhew, 2000, pp.70-71). Richard Fenno interviewed more than 200 committee members in six House committees for his book comparing congressional committees and “concluded that members pursued three principal goals—reelection, influence within the House, and good public policy.” (Arnold, 2004; Fenno, 1973). Committee members with specific concerns tend to join the same committees. (Berry, 2016, p. 693; Fenno, 1973). It may be that the ability to take a position and speak on issues of interest to a legislator’s constituents (or the member) is the more valuable aspect of committee membership for a legislator unless they have the seniority and party membership required to be a committee chair. (Berry, 693). Interestingly, cooperation may be in the majority party’s interest as well since voter approval of congressional performance benefit the majority party no matter who is in the White House. (Jones, 2004).

In this paper you will demonstrate that you can use statistics to describe data

In this paper you will demonstrate that you can use statistics to describe data and to test hypotheses. You can use any dataset. You can also use any statistics program you’re comfortable with, though obviously JASP will be the choice for most, or all, of you.
To get started, find an interesting dataset and pick two variables that you think might be causally related, so that you have a hypothesis: X —> Y. Then think of a third variable that you might need to control for to isolate the true effect of X on Y. In this paper you won’t be evaluated on the logic behind the hypothesis (why/how X might affect Y) or the quality of your measures, so don’t worry too much about those. However, in writing the paper, you will need to make sure you explain the hypothesis and measures in a few sentences, so I can follow what you’re presenting.
Your first job is to learn something about the individual variables. Then, run an appropriate test to determine if X seems to have an effect on Y. If so, how strong is the relationship, and is it positive or negative? Third, rerun the test with the third variable controlled for in an appropriate way and determine what happens to the relationship between X and Y. Then all you have to do is write up a report of what you saw and found in clear language, including whatever tables and charts you think might be helpful in helping me understand what you found. In the report, you should be sure to discuss both substantive significance (real-world importance) and statistical significance and should do your best to describe everything in language that could be understood by someone who hasn’t taken a statistics class. Don’t hide behind jargon!
The paper should be about 3-5 pages of text, plus tables and figures.
