One of the most common questions I am asked in terms of my research is “Why didn’t you study [insert group]?” It can be hard to understand why I would pick a certain group to study and not others. First, when you are doing any scientific research project, you have to narrow your focus. In this case I narrowed my field to one type of immigrant. To include other types of immigrants would have taken too long to pursue. It’s better to focus your study and get better results for one group than it is to do too many groups at once. Not saying you can’t, but I wanted to graduate in some reasonable time frame and I did not have grant funding to pay for my time.
