image001The first dissertation abstract: Yahya Hasan A. Qader. (Department of  Education, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824. Factors influencing the Satisfaction of Muslim Organization Members in the Greater Lansing, Michigan, Area. 1988) Abstract: In conducting this study, the main objectives were (a) to explore various relationships between Muslim organization members’ satisfaction with life and the academic domain and certain demographic variables; (b) to examine a proposed typology of human behavior, taking into account normative values as a point of departure; and (c) to evaluate the validity of measures of subjective phenomena, namely religiosity and satisfaction with the academic domain. To serve these objectives, the literature on small groups and organizational theory was discussed. Life satisfaction as related to contextual variables was reviewed, and measurement scales were constructed. The purpose of this study was to measure the relationship between certain demographic variables–namely, age, marital status, length of residence in the United States, and ethnic background–and satisfaction with life and the academic domain, as evaluated by members of a voluntary organization–the Islamic Center of Greater Lansing, Michigan. Probability sampling was used in sample selection (N = 115). Survey (questionnaire and interview), case study, and personal observation were used as methods of inquiry. The response rate was 58%. Three measures were designed for the study variables: academic domain, life satisfaction as a whole, and religiosity. The analysis plan was divided into four stages: modification of the data, coding-recoding, computer simulation, and data analysis. The major statistical tools used were a t-test and cross-tabulation. Multiple regression was used for possible controls. Principal-component factor analysis was also used. Twenty four hypotheses were tested. Only six hypotheses were rejected, whereas 18 hypotheses were not rejected for no difference between the study groups. The sample’s satisfaction with past, present, and expected future life was 5.00, 4.84, and 5.66, respectively. Concerning academic domains, three of the nine items (satisfaction with professors, with mass media, and with the English language) were significant at the .05 level among Arab and non-Arab Muslim respondents.  @Copywright, 1988, Hasan A.

 The second dissertation abstract: Yahya Hasan A. Qader. Comparative Analysis of Social Change in the Muslim Nations, U-M-I Dissertation Information Center. (1991) 

Abstract: The main purpose of this research was to study aspects of social changing education, housing, health, labor force composition, and participation in Muslim nations in two periods: 1975 and 1985. Further, the researcher compared the extent of change among Muslim countries in these aspects, and tested hypotheses concerning relationships between infant mortality (as the endogenous variable) and adult literacy, women’s participation in the labor force, access to piped water, population density, and GNP per capita (as exogenous variables).  Thirty-six nations constituted the study sample. Using secondary data, t-test, multiple regression, analysis of variance, path analysis, and correlations were used as statistical techniques in analyzing the data.   Results of the t-test showed that a significant change had occurred between 1985 and 1975 in the education, health, housing, labor force composition, and political participation areas, whereas no significant difference was observed in female enrollment in schools and citizen participation indicators.  Results of the analysis of variance showed that both significant differences were found in geographic location, ethnic background, political type, and oil production. Significant differences were found between Asian and African nations in women’s participation in the labor force and adult literacy. Between Arab and non-Arab Muslim nations, the null hypotheses concerning infant mortality, women’s participation in the labor force, and GNP per capita were rejected.  The null hypotheses concerning republican and non republican nations in infant mortality, access to piped water, and GNP per capita were rejected. The null hypotheses concerning oil and non oil-producing nations was rejected only on GNP per capita.  Path analysis results showed that 9 out of 11 hypotheses were in congruity with expectations. However, hypotheses concerning the relationships between women’s participation in the labor force, and between adult literacy and population density, were opposite to expectations, having a negative rather than positive sign. The findings suggest that change had occurred in certain areas but not others in these countries’ transition from the traditional to the modern. The implications of social change theory are highly desirable area for further research, especially using historical comparative analysis and path-analysis techniques. @Copywright, 1991, Hasan A.
