  • Though it is widely recognized that the population of the United States is aging, much of our current understanding in the field of individual decision making is based on data from student populations.

Many older individuals are productive and intellectually viable throughout their lives. Still, others are vulnerable to dementia and neurodegenerative illnesses, such as Alzheimer's disease.

  • The ownership of insurers and the scope of their activities may also pose market challenges. While competition is arguably limited by the presence of few players, such as in the Irish insurance system, the existence of several players is not the only measure of market competitiveness. Mobility across insurers is low in many OECD countries. It is also sometimes challenging to establish incentives for “healthy” and equitable competition among PHI insurers, as they face incentives to concentrate on good risks, thereby failing to cover more vulnerable individuals.

  • Skylines, and other directly related problems such as multiobjective opti- mization [Steuer 1986], maximum vectors [Kung et al. 1975; Matousek 1991], and the contour problem [McLain 1974], have been extensively studied and nu- merous algorithms have been proposed formain-memory processing. To the best of our knowledge, however, the first work addressing skylines in the context of databaseswasBorzsonyi et al.

  • General Practitioners are usually the first medical point of contact for elderly people, but some doctors may fail to diagnose alcohol misuse in a population where there are other urgent medical matters and some believe that it may be better for the individual to continue in their established pattern of drinking as altering it could be harmful.
