A social psychologist interested in the effects of alcohol abuse conducted the following study. He mailed questionnaires to the homes of workers who had been laid off from a local automobile plant. The surveys were mailed at various time intervals and the workers were asked to fill them out anonymously and return them. Information about the amount of alcohol consumption before and after the layoff was obtained. Fifty percent of the surveys were completed and returned during the course of the research. The researcher found a very high positive relation between alcohol consumption and duration of unemployment. In his report the researcher stated that, "the conditions of unemployment produce a tendency for people to increase their intake of alcohol." If you were the editor in charge of deciding whether this work should be published, what would your judgment be? Please explain.
