The sex distribution in SEC is reasonably close to that in the 1998 census and 2000 DHS. The 1999
Socioeconomic Survey is somewhat out of line with the other sources. Likewise, the age distribution of
older persons in the SEC is quite similar to that in the other sources. The marital status distribution in the
SES for men is also fairly similar to that found in the other three sources but not for women. The SEC
sample has relatively fewer women who are currently married and relatively more who are widowed than
indicated by the census and the...
Although the African Charter is the primary treaty providing a framework for human
rights in the region, its provisions on women’s rights are largely seen as ineffective and
The charter recognizes and afﬁrms women’s rights in three provisions. First, article
18(3) requires states parties to “ensure the elimination of every discrimination against
women and also ensure the protection of the rights of the woman.
Link Cross-Testbed experimentation. Multiple
closed distributed systems that run in parallel can offer
unique resources such as access to speciﬁc scientiﬁc
equipment. One can imagine a physics researcher will-
ing to provide access to their Beowulf cluster  but
wishing to consume resources produced by data collec-
tors at a CERN  on a completely separate network.
In the year 2005, only 2.9% of the global population were migrants, but migration is
unequally distributed throughout the world. In past years, migration flows have shifted and
in some cases, international migration is actually decreasing. Only two areas in the world
have seen an increase in migration – North America and the Former Soviet Union (FSU)
(International Organization for Migration, 2005).
Germany has long been a country of immigration. At present, there are two big groups of
migrants, the Turks and ethnic Germans from countries of the FSU.
Trachoma is first and foremost a disease of morbidity, reflecting
suffering and disability, in contrast with mortality, which reflects the
rate of death. The burden of disease is an effective framework for
discussing trachoma since it takes into account the effects of morbidity
and mortality on the ability to fulfill societal roles. The burden of
disease looks beyond the prevalence of a disease; that is, it attempts to
measure the impact of disease based on its distribution by sex and age....
In a detailed descriptive analysis, temporal trends in disease incidence and distribution
were examined according to patient age, sex, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, urban versus rural
dwelling, region (health board area), and season. Case-patients were assigned rurality and
deprivation scores on the basis of their home domicile. For rurality assignment, we used a
Statistics New Zealand classification system, which defines 7 grades of rurality on the basis of
population size and employment address (18).
Population-based cancer registries are important resources for cancer epi-
demiologists since they hold information on the distribution of cancer in well
defined populations. This information may be analysed without the need for
any additional data collection. Cancer site-specific incidence rates can be cal-
culated and compared according to many different variables such as age, sex,
country of birth, place of residence at the time of diagnosis, etc.
