Hi, I am afraid I disagree with a previous post that “the pandemic will worsen hidden youth’s situation.” You see, now everyone is asked to stay at home, and hidden youth no longer face pressure from their parents or society to go out, which might reduce their stress level.

Following the previous post, we have used the snowball sampling method and asked the interviewees to introduce their “hidden” peers who would like to accept the interview. But will it have an issue of generalizability?

The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic and social distancing measures might make “hidden youth” even more isolated from society. Our center’s cyber outreaching team is considering online engaging those youth and look for participants who would like to accept interviews. May I ask which sampling method is the most appropriate?

Hello, I find a scale measuring loneliness that has not been used in Hong Kong among older adults. Can I translate it by myself? And then use it in my program evaluation?

Following the previous post, is it ethical to make one group of older adults not having virtual visits while the others can? Any solutions for this?

Under the chronic pandemic, older persons in residential care might feel increasing loneliness as family members cannot visit them in person. I see a news report that some residential homes have used robots for virtual visits, hence I plan to compare the loneliness levels of older persons between those who virtual visits and those who do not. What kind of research design can I employ?

Dear MEL professionals, would you please help me out with the odd data? For example, in a survey about low-income parents, the column of age has some strange values, such as 120.
