Generalizing Study Results

Discussion 2: Generalizing Study Results

Generalizability is the extent to which research findings from your sample population can be applicable to a larger population. There are many best

practices for ensuring generalizability. Two of those are making sure the sample is as much like the population as possible and making sure that the

sample size is large enough to mitigate the chance of differences within the population. For this Discussion, read the case study titled “Social

Work Research: Program Evaluation” and consider how the particular study results can be generalizable.
