  • One of the most frequent questions we get at Standard & Poor’s is, “What are the criteria for being added to an S&P Index?” First and foremost, S&P Indices are not rules-based; all changes are fully discretionary and are determined by the Index Committee based upon public information. Companies may not apply for inclusion. The Standard & Poor’s Index Committee examines five main criteria when looking for Index candidates: trading analysis, liquidity, ownership, fundamental analysis, market capitalization, and sector representation.

  • There has been an exponential growth in the number of techniques for measuring characteristics of the family. Specifically, the first edition covered a thirty-year period and included abstracts of 319 measures. But the second edition, which adds abstracts of instruments published in just a ten-year span, contains 494 additional measures, or a total of 813. Because the number of instruments has more than doubled, it was not possible for the two of us alone to search the hundreds of journals in which these measures appear and to abstract all 494 instruments.

  • We know from many research studies that practising nurses and other healthcare professionals do not always have the time, confidence or skills to carry out research or systematic reviews for themselves. Therefore they rely on reviews by other people when considering innovations and developments in their practice. Our aim for this book, therefore, is to present readers with the issues arising from conducting systematic reviews and thereby to help them understand reviews that they identify and read when considering developing their health policy, services and clinical practice....

  • This is a reference book. The reader has the right to expect a clearly defined scope, specific criteria for inclusion, and 100 percent inclusion of everything that meets those criteria. Those were the objectives of A Biographical Dictionary of the Baseball Hall of Fame when the first edition was published in 2000. They remain the same with this second edition—which has been updated to include more than 50 new biographies of players, managers, umpires, baseball executives, broadcasters and writers who have earned their place among the greats of the game in the past eight years.

  • The Thirteenth Replenishment Agreement of the World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA), covering the period 2003-5 inclusive, introduced grant financing for the first time in IDA’s 40-year history. The Agreement recognized that unsustainable levels of debt should be a criterion for eligibility of grants for low-income borrowers, along with criteria such as the exigencies of natural disasters, conflict and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In IDA 13, each borrower was subject to a cap of grant funding equivalent to 40 percent of its total IDA allocation.

Since the first edition, the text has been extensively revised by the inclusion of new guidelines, grading criteria, and normal data, including Doppler tissue imaging. It has also been reformatted to be more easily accessible. New chapters have been added on cardiac resynchronization and the atria.

  • A distinction is to be made between the terms 'efficacy' and 'effectiveness'. Efficacy is defined as "the probability of benefit to individuals in a defined population from a medical technology applied for a given medical problem under ideal conditions of use". By contrast, effectiveness is considered to have all the attributes of efficacy but to reflect "performance under ordinary conditions by the average practitioner for the typical patient" [12].

  • Our empirical findings are robust to controlling for individual fixed-effects, expe- rience, year effects, team, home ballpark characteristics, and managerial quality. The inclusion of individual fixed-effects means that the results cannot be explained by assorta- tive matching between complementary or substitutable players at the team level, since the analysis is exploiting variation over time within a given player’s performance.

  • Statistical models were used to control for—i.e., remove—the impact of socioeconomic factors that might account for the correlation between race/ethnicity and credit scores. The inclusion of such controls slightly weakened, but by no means eliminated (or accounted for) the association between minority status and credit scores. Among all such control variables, race/ethnicity proved to be the most robust single predictor of credit scores; in most instances it had a significantly greater impact than education, marital status, income and housing values.

  • Based on the final KQ s specified above, we generated a list of inclusion and exclusion criteria (Table 3). We included prospective and cross-sectional observational studies of health outcomes, trials of materials developed for low-health-literacy populations, and trials of interventions that compared materials designed to be “easier to read or understand” with standard materials. We limited studies to those with outcomes related to health and use and costs of health services.

  • A broader range has permitted inclusion of many Caribbean entries, for instance, which merit inclusion but might not meet a stringent pure-s!ang-only test. Our only real deviation from Partridge's inclusion criteria is a much diminished body of nicknames. The regiment nicknames that populate Partridge's work no longer fulfil the language function that they did in the United Kingdom of Partridge's day.

  • Although in many trials haloperidol has been used as the standard comparator, the clinical trial evidence for haloperidol itself is much less impressive than one might expect (Barry et al 2012). By their very nature systematic reviews and RCTs provide only average indices of probable efficacy in groups of individuals recruited to the study in question. Although many RCTs attempt to limit inclusion criteria to a single category of diagnosis from DSM4 or ICD10, many studies include individuals with different types of schizophrenic diagnosis such as schizoaffective disorder.

  • From the early days of the ENHPS, countries were provided with a set of criteria they could use to develop their national networks of health-promoting schools (Barnekow Rasmussen et al., 1999). These criteria proved to be a very useful starting-point for the development of national programmes, which would all adhere to a broad concept of health but also allow the inclusion of necessary national and regional specificities.
