I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Single Mothers and Social Support. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The nature and form of this reciprocity have been partly under-investigated with a substantial number of research focusing on urban single-headed families. The researcher set out to research on the nature of reciprocity that is commonly observed in the relationships dealing with single mothers. To guide her research, the researcher set out the following research questions.
According to the available data, in 1990, 12.3 % of families in Vermont consisted of single mothers and 43 percent of state data for those living below average income consisted of single mothers (Nelson, 2000). It has been of interest learning about single mothers who almost from close to having of the population of poor and an increasing number in every sector of society how they obtain help to support the families.
A substantial data of research offers a clue to the system of reciprocity observed among social support groups with most of the research done learning more on the urban settings in disregard of the rural settings. The current research pays particular attention to the rural settings to understand the issue of reciprocity in the social support groups.
To help the researcher unravel the mystery involved in the social support groups, research questions were framed to guide the researcher in the data collection and analysis of the phenomena from the data collected.
The study involved the use of the interview to gain an insight into the research questions. The respondents were thirty-nine single mothers with at least one child under the age of 18 years old. The researcher had to use a snowball sampling process to locate the respondents as it were easier to identify the women within the same social network of support. The women were then asked a series of questions in an interview that lasted at least two hours. .
