Good question. Your abstract should be a brief summary of the contents of your paper. The APA 6th manual tells us that it should, be "dense with information" in order to make your reader want to read the full paper. 

Please note APA 6 is now out of date. It will remain online until 2021, but will not be updatedThe equivalent APA 7 page can be found here.
