  • Survey research is a thriving industry worldwide. Rossi et al. (1983) estimated the gross income of the industry in the United States alone to be roughly $5 billion, employing 60,000 persons. There are no current estimates, but the market for survey work has only continued to grow in the last two decades. Accompanying this growth are revolutionary breakthroughs in survey methodology. The field of cognitive psychology has dramatically changed how survey researchers approach the public to request participation in surveys, and how they design questionnaires and interpret survey findings....

  • Customer satisfaction measurement, through MUSA model, provides the analysts with the highest and lowest performance indicators, pointing out the leverage opportunities and the weaknesses of the company. An extension of the MUSA methodology for modelling customer importance preferences for service characteristics is presented in this paper. Several approaches in the context of multiobjective linear programming are examined, which give the ability to compare derived and modelled weights of the satisfaction dimensions and to introduce the principles of Kano’s model to MUSA methodology.

  • The diversification of economic activity and labour market development have both been identified as possible strategies to reduce the vulnerability of the poor and enable the ascent out of poverty.

  • There are a number of well-recognized indicators of biological risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and death for which change over some period of time can be determined from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES).

  • Islamic criminal law is not something anachronistic, as is the assumption of many scholars interested in the Arab and Muslim world.1 It is in fact the prevailing form of law in many Muslim states2 and may well become a penal law in the majority in the future.

  • Because larger firms are much more likely to be covered by collective bargaining contracts and works councils, a closely related issue concerns the independent role of firm size in providing wage insurance. As firm size is typically viewed as a good proxy for capital market access (e.g., Gertler and Gilchrist 1994), insurance contracts should be particularly apparent for individuals working at larger employers.

Leverage is positively correlated with size and collateral, and is negatively correlated with profits, market-to-book ratio and dividends.

  • We use data from the Expenditure and Food Survey (EFS), which is administered every year in the UK. The annual sample includes between six and seven thousand households. For each household, an initial interview collects detailed demographic information. Immediately after the interview, each household member starts a expenditure diary, in which they record everything they buy during the next fourteen days. Diary expenditures are aggregated to “diary weeks” in the data, for reasons of confidentiality, resulting in two seven-day aggregates of expenditure for each individual.

  • The survey methodology is that used for the Gallup World Poll. Surveys are conducted face to face in economies where telephone coverage represents less than 80 percent of the population. In most economies the fieldwork is completed in two to four weeks. In economies where face-to-face surveys are conducted, the first stage of sampling is the identification of primary sampling units, consisting of clusters of households. The pri- mary sampling units are stratified by population size, geography, or both, and clustering is achieved through one or more stages of sampling.
