  • Here we tried to map the dependency among aged in India. This is done across four sub groups, Rural Male, Rural female, urban male and urban female.

  • Health care spending has exceeded economic growth in every recent decade. Over the last four decades, the average growth in health spending has exceeded the growth of the economy as a whole by between 1.1 and 3.0 percentage points (Figure 2). Since 1970, health care spending per capita has grown at an average annual rate of 8.2% or 2.4 percentage points faster than nominal GDP. The persistence of this trend suggests systematic differences between health care and other economic sectors where growth rates are typically more in line with the overall economy. A smaller difference is...

  • The abuse of older people by family members dates back to ancient times. Until the advent of initiatives to address child abuse and domestic violence in the last quarter of the 20th century, it remained a private matter, hidden from public view. Initially seen as a social welfare issue and subsequently a problem of ageing, abuse of the elderly, like other forms of family violence, has developed into a public health and criminal justice concern.

  • We examine the competition between a group of Internet retailers who operate in an environment where a price search engine plays a dominant role.We show that for some products in this environment, the easy price search makes demand tremendously pricesensitive. Retailers, though, engage in obfuscation—practices that frustrate consumer search or make it less damaging to firms—resulting in much less price sensitivity on some other products. We discuss several models of obfuscation and examine its effects on demand and markups empirically.

  • Many soils which have received manure or synthetic applications over a number of years contain relatively high levels of soil phosphorus. In soils which have not been so fertilized, phosphorus levels may be low. Rock powders suc as colloidal phosphate and rock phosphate can be applied to build up the phosphorus-supplying power of a soil over time. However, these products become available to plants very slowly, and cannot be relied upon to supply adequate phosphorus to a crop the year of application when soil level of phosphorus are low.

  • Investing in higher-risk, illiquid, targeted investments are part of an active portfolio and are more time-intensive than a passively managed portfolio. As such, pension funds that have adopted formal policies limit their total investments in this category to two percent of total assets in line with their broader strategic asset allocation policy. Pension funds seek portfolio diversification through a strategic asset allocation policy in which the fund or its consultants set a target percentage to each asset class—traditional and alternative investments.

  • The pelvic adnexae include the ovaries and fallopian tubes. In general, ovaries increase in size throughout childhood, plateau in adulthood, then de- crease in size in the postmenopausal period (5). Postmenopausal ovary size is affected by the number of years since menopause and the quantity of prior pregnancies (6); however, ovaries should not be palpable in a woman who is two or more years beyond menopause, and such a finding should prompt fur- ther evaluation with transvaginal ultrasound.

  • In this paper, we assess whether boosting minority car-ownership rates would narrow inter-racial employment rate differentials. We pursue two empirical strategies. First, we explore whether the effect of auto ownership on the probability of being employed is greater for more segregated groups of workers. Exploiting the fact that African-Americans are considerably more segregated from whites than are Latinos, we estimate car-employment effects for blacks, Latinos, and whites and test whether these effects are largest for more segregated groups.

  • Well-Defined Currency. Almost all previously de- ployed computational markets have used a virtual cur- rencies instead of real cash. The low barrier to utiliza- tion and low stakes in case of deployment error make simple closed virtual currencies attractive to developers. In these scenarios, it is all too easy to skip the monetary policy considerations that make currencies work. For all of their bootstrapping advantages, virtual cur- rencies require initial thought and ongoing care to func- tion properly.
