  • The survey was completed in July & August 2006 and is building on similar surveys conducted in 2001 and 2003. In 2006, we organised the survey as a joint initiative with the Czech Institute of Internal Auditors (ČIIA). Our objective is to provide an independent forum to report on key trends, and emerging issues regarding many aspects of the Internal Audit (“IA”) function in various industry segments operating in the Czech Republic.

  • Differences in performance are substantially higher in the 1997-2001 subperiod, suggesting that the outperformance of SRI funds that we document in this paper is largely driven by the first part of the sample period. We also investigate how our results are affected by the presence of SRI funds that perform little social screening. When we restrict the sample of SRI funds to include only those funds that perform intensive social screening, we obtain results similar to those obtained for the whole sample of SRI funds.

  • Neighborhoods may influence late-life health through a number of pathways (see Figure 1). The IOM (1991) disablement framework, which distinguishes among disease, functional limitation, and disability, serves as the starting point for this framework. We extend the IOM framework to include mortality and self-rated general health status, which are both influenced by disease, functional limitation, and disability, as well as the variety of individual and neighborhood factors that influence health in general.

  • An extrasolar planet or exoplanet is a planet orbiting a star (or remnant of a star) beyond our Solar System. As of autumn 2007, about 250 exoplanets had been discovered around 220 different stars, including nearly two dozen multiple planet systems. No less than five exoplanets have been discovered orbiting the star 55 Cancri; one of the planets has nearly four times the mass of Jupiter, another is comparable with Jupiter in mass, two are slightly less massive than Saturn, while the innermost planet has a mass similar to that of Uranus....

  • All estimates in this report are based on samples of 100 cases or more. Estimates are not shown for certain race groups, nor for children living with no employed adults, because these samples were too small. The tables in this report show estimated percentages of Wisconsin residents based on survey responses. These estimates should not be treated as precise results because they are derived from a sample. A 95 percent confidence interval (+) is printed in a column next to each percentage estimate; this means that 95 percent of similar surveys would obtain an estimate within...

  • For developing an appropriate strategy for combating tuberculosis in the country, it is necessary to obtain a precise estimate of the disease in the community. The process of estimating it for as large and diverse a country as India is not only difficult, but is also expensive and time consuming.

  • In DWI/DUI cases involving child passengers or victims, traffic prosecutors should consider the applicability of generic child endangerment or abuse statutes. In People v. Cruz, 576 N.Y.S. 978 (N.Y. Criminal Ct. 1991), the defendant drove his car with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .18 grams per deciliter with his two children in the car. The court recognized the inherent dangers of impaired driving and held that there was sufficient evidence to find the defendant guilty of endangering the welfare of a child. Similarly, in State v. Miller, 1995 Ohio App.

  • For instance, in developing countries in particular, we would expect those in urban areas to utilize cars, motor cycles and buses to a greater extent than those in rural areas. Similarly, agricultural products are transported to the cities, often from places far away—see Parikh and Shukla (1995) who provide an early analysis of the effect of urbanization on energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries. We agree with O’Neill and Chen (2002, p.

  • The Federal Reserve did not hold the size of its securities portfolio precisely constant after it ended its agency purchase program earlier this year. Instead, consistent with the Committee’s goal of ultimately returning the portfolio to one consisting primarily of Treasury securities, we adopted a policy of re-investing maturing Treasuries in similar securities while allowing agency securities to run off as payments of principal were received.

  • The first serious efforts to estimate the number of new and existing cancer cases in a given population were made at the turn of the century in various European countries. In Germany, an attempt was made in 1900 to register all cancer patients who were under medical treatment. Questionnaires were sent to every physician in the country to record the prevalence of cancer on 15 October 1900 (Anon., 1901). The same approach was adopted between 1902 and 1908 in Denmark, Hungary, Iceland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.

  • In 1996, the Committee on Population of the National Research Council sponsored a novel workshop on the biodemography of aging, which resulted in the volume Between Zeus and the Salmon: The Biodemography of Longevity (National Research Council, 1997). The workshop and its report, which considered the continuing increases in human life span in a broad biological context, launched a new phase in studies of human aging at the population level.

  • 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.

  • With regard to human resources in the health care sector, Hungary had 3.1 active physicians per 1000 population in 2008. The number of physicians has dropped substantially since 2003, and increased professional mobility may lead to a further decline in this ratio in the near future. Physicians are unevenly distributed, both in terms of geography and specialties. A similar trend can be observed for the allied health care personnel.

  • 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...

  • The 2011 survey instrument is similar to the 2009 survey. However, a few important changes were made to cover a broader array of non-bank financial services, and to improve and streamline data collection. Most notably, the 2011 survey added non-bank remittances as AFS covered in the survey and revised questions related to the time- frames during which households used AFS. The revisions to the 2011 survey also streamlined the questions about the reasons households do not have a bank account.

  • We utilize a longitudinal survey of registrants for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) to estimate the economic returns to an MBA. The GMAT exam, an admissions requirement for most MBA programs, is similar to the SAT for undergraduates without the competition from the ACT. The survey, sponsored by the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC), was administered in four waves, beginning in 1990 and ending in 1998. 14 In addition, survey responses were linked to GMAC’s registration and test data, which includes personal background information and GMAT scores.

  • The survey results indicate that the majority of students in almost all of the scenarios preferred the modern electronic soundtrack. Furthermore, in each case, regardless of whether a majority was reached, the positive response to this music outweighed the negative response. Focus group comments for the Caligari screening, for example, noted that the DJ Spooky music was “more effective” and allowed for a “better experience” for students.

  • This chapter addresses the most general problem formulation of detection in linear systems. Basically, all problem formulations that have been discussed so far are included in the framework considered. The main purpose is to survey multiple model algorithms, and a secondary purpose is to overview and compare the state of the art in different application areas for reducing complexity, where similar algorithms have been developed independently.

  • The subsequent survey in the second demonstration, regarding the use of electronic music in a screening of Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages, yielded similar results. The survey found that 78.1 percent of the new group saw the elec- tronic music as enhancing their engagement with the film. A further 18.7 percent found that the music detracted, while only 3.1 percent remained neutral. In con- trast, only 50 percent of these students would have found a piano or organ score beneficial, while only 46.8 percent would have benefited from a symphonic score....
