Limitations, delimitations, and Summary

Limitations, delimitations, and Summary

1. Develop your Limitations, Delimitations, and Summary sections. 

State any assumptions that you will be using as a basis for your study on the lack of financial literacy taught in schools. Limitations are issues that the researcher cannot control. In contrast, delimitations define how you are choosing to control or scope your research. Also mention generalizability of the study findings. Note that qualitative studies are not generalizable to the population.

Each section should be 1-2 paragraphs.

References must be used and not older than 5 years 

2. Edit the Definitions section with adding references for definitions and terms no later than 5 years. 

I attached my paper to edit and add on the new section of limitations, delimitations, and summary section. 

I also attached an example dissertation for reference as well

Abstract

The purpose of this descriptive correlation study with a logistic regression analysis was to

examine the relationship between SEC regulatory compliance or malfeasance and the

economic performance of American, publicly traded financial institutions from 2005

through 2010. The research study examined three research questions. The research

questions addressed the relationship between a company’s financial performance and

associated regulatory malfeasance or compliance as well as the type and volume of

regulatory violations. Three predictor variables were operationalized as follows: (a)

regulatory compliance or malfeasance, (b) the type of malfeasance, and (c) the volume of

malfeasance. The study researched 74 publicly traded financial institutions categorized

under SIC 6211. The results demonstrated that (a) neither regulatory compliance nor

malfeasance were statistically related to the financial performance of the financial

institutions, and (b) no significant relationship exists between the volume or type of

regulatory malfeasance and the financial performance of the institutions researched. A

statistically significant relationship (p-value=0.054) was uncovered between one specific

type of regulatory violation and financial performance. Companies with violations

categorized as irresponsible or unfair treatment of customers reported the weakest

financial performance. The results were determined using several statistical methods of

analysis.
