As you will read later in this chapter, researchers select a sample of participants from a much larger population. It is too expensive, and often impossible, to work with the entire population and thus directly test the null hypothesis. Third, because the entire population cannot be directly tested (again, it is impractical, uneconomical, and often impossible), you can never really say that there is actually no difference between groups (or an inequality) on a specified dependent variable (if you accept the null hypothesis).
Each of these men is married and has at least two children. Another group of men with no children also completed the same survey. 6.

To get such results, researchers must formulate their opening questions and hypotheses in a manner that is clear, forceful, and easily understood. 3. Hypotheses ref lect the theory or literature upon which they are based.
