Achieving compliance with pool fencing legislation in New Zealand: a survey of regulatory authorities. (1/24)

OBJECTIVES: To identify the status of compliance and enforcement of New Zealand's Fencing of Swimming Pools Act (FOSP Act), 10 years after its introduction, and to identify methods for improving both compliance with the act and the process of enforcement. METHODS: A postal questionnaire was sent to all 74 authorities in New Zealand in which they were asked questions about their enforcement of the FOSP Act. Semistructured telephone interviews were conducted with 12 authorities to supplement the data obtained in the postal survey. RESULTS: Based on responses to the survey, it was estimated that there are over 59,000 domestic swimming pools in New Zealand, giving rates of 46 pools/1000 dwellings and 16 pools/1000 persons. The authorities reported that 44% of pools complied with the act, and a further 4% had been granted exemptions. Nineteen per cent of pools were reported to not comply with the act, and the compliance status of a further 33% was not known, or not stated by the authority. Only 9% of authorities had procedures for locating and inspecting pools, while 28% had a programme of reinspection to ensure that pools continued to comply. Pool owner resistance was considered to be the main difficulty with enforcing the act, and nearly half of the authorities believed publicity or education was needed to overcome these barriers. Fifty two per cent of authorities had publicized the act during the 12 months preceding the survey. CONCLUSIONS: Due to ambiguities within the legislation, and differing levels of commitment by authorities to locate pools and monitor compliance, compliance with the FOSP Act is not consistent nationally. If the act were less ambiguous, there would be greater consistency and more enforcement.  (+info)

America's affordable housing crisis: a contract unfulfilled. (2/24)

For many poor Americans, having a decent home and suitable living environment remains a dream. This lack of adequate housing is not only a burden for many of the poor, but it is harmful to the larger society as well, because of the adverse effects of inadequate housing on public health. Not only is the failure to provide adequate housing shortsighted from a policy perspective, but it is also a failure to live up to societal obligations. There is a societal obligation to meet the housing needs of everyone, including the most disadvantaged. Housing assistance must become a federally-funded entitlement.  (+info)

Housing and health: time again for public health action. (3/24)

Poor housing conditions are associated with a wide range of health conditions, including respiratory infections, asthma, lead poisoning, injuries, and mental health. Addressing housing issues offers public health practitioners an opportunity to address an important social determinant of health. Public health has long been involved in housing issues. In the 19th century, health officials targeted poor sanitation, crowding, and inadequate ventilation to reduce infectious diseases as well as fire hazards to decrease injuries. Today, public health departments can employ multiple strategies to improve housing, such as developing and enforcing housing guidelines and codes, implementing "Healthy Homes" programs to improve indoor environmental quality, assessing housing conditions, and advocating for healthy, affordable housing. Now is the time for public health to create healthier homes by confronting substandard housing.  (+info)

Fire fatalities among children: an analysis across Philadelphia's census tracts. (4/24)

OBJECTIVE: This study investigates the possible causes of high levels of residential fire deaths to children younger than 15 years of age in Philadelphia from 1989 to 2000. METHODS: The authors analyzed 246 deaths from 146 residential fires by census tract in Philadelphia using both individual level data and aggregate level data drawn from the records of the Fire Marshall's Office. Death rates by age and sex were calculated using the 1990 Census. Data on fires from official records were combined with aggregate level data by census tract from the 1990 Census and analyzed using logistic regression. Newspaper articles on the fires analyzed were used to identify residences with possible fire code violations. The authors used data from the Philadelphia Bureau of Licenses and Inspections to provide evidence of code violations. RESULTS: The statistically significant variables that resulted from the logistic regression were census tracts in the highest quartile for low income households, census tracts in the highest quartile for single-parent households with children younger than age 18, census tracts in the highest quartile for houses built before 1939, and the number of children younger than 15 years of age in a census tract. CONCLUSION: Population characteristics by census tract are useful in identifying risk factors for residential fire deaths of children. Census tracts identified as at highest risk can provide fire prevention units with opportunities to take preventative measures such as the distribution of smoke detectors, and the education of residents about the dangers of careless smoking and planning for the rescue of children in the event of a fire.  (+info)

The built environment and its relationship to the public's health: the legal framework. (5/24)

The built environment significantly affects the public's health. This was most obvious when infectious disease was the primary public health threat during the industrial revolution; unsanitary conditions and overcrowded urban areas facilitated the spread of infection. However, even today in the age of chronic diseases there remains an important connection between population health and the built environment. Physical spaces can expose people to toxins or pollutants and influence lifestyles that contribute to diabetes, coronary vascular disease, and asthma. Public health advocates can help shape the design of cities and suburbs in ways that improve public health, but to do so effectively they need to understand the legal framework. This article reviews the connection between public health and the built environment and then describes the legal pathways for improving the design of our built environment.  (+info)

Childhood injuries due to falls from apartment balconies and windows. (6/24)

BACKGROUND: Falls from balconies and windows are an important cause of childhood injury. This study investigated the circumstances around such falls and attempted to identify possible measures for their prevention. POPULATION: Children <15 years living in Dallas County, Texas. METHODS: Each child treated because of a fall from a building in 1997-99 had information about the injury collected, and a parent was contacted to obtain further information. For apartment related falls, an attempt was made to visit the apartment to measure windows and balcony rails. RESULTS: Ninety eight children were injured in falls from buildings during the three year period; 39 (40%) were admitted to hospital. Seventy five of the falls (77%) involved apartments, and most occurred around noon or evening meal times. Among apartment falls, 39 (52%) fell from windows, 34 (45%) from balconies, and two (3%) from unknown sites. For more than two thirds of balcony related falls, the child fell from between the balcony rails, all of which were spaced more than 4 inches (10 cm) apart. On-site measurement showed the rails were an average of 7.5 inches (19 cm) apart; all of these apartments were built before 1984. For more than two thirds of window related falls, the window was situated within 2 feet (61 cm) of the floor. CONCLUSIONS: Two factors are important in falls from apartment windows and balconies: balcony rails more than 4 inches (10 cm) apart, and windows positioned low to the floor. Current building codes do not apply to older apartments, where most of these falls occurred. Nevertheless, these factors may be amenable to environmental modifications that may prevent most of these falls.  (+info)

Exposure to lead and length of time needed to make homes lead-safe for young children. (7/24)

OBJECTIVES: We determined the length of time needed to make homes lead-safe in a population of children aged 0 to 6 years with blood lead levels (BLLs) of 20 micrograms per deciliter (mug/dL) or greater. Reducing this time would reduce children's exposure to lead. METHODS: Data came from the Wisconsin Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program's comprehensive blood lead surveillance system. Analysis was restricted to children whose first BLL test value during 1996-1999 was between 20 and 40 mug/dL and for whom housing intervention data were available (n=382). RESULTS: The median length of time required to make a home lead-safe was 465 days. Only 18% of children lived in homes that were made lead-safe within 6 months; 45% lived in homes requiring more than 18 months to be lead-safe. CONCLUSIONS: Efforts are needed to reduce the time it takes to make a home lead-safe. Although abatement orders always include time limits, improved compliance with the orders must be enforced. Greater emphasis should be placed on securing lead-safe or lead-free housing for families, thus reducing lead exposure.  (+info)

Current state of the science: health effects and indoor environmental quality. (8/24)

Our understanding of the relationship between human health and the indoor environment continues to evolve. Previous research on health and indoor environments has tended to concentrate on discrete pollutant sources and exposures and on specific disease processes. Recently, efforts have been made to characterize more fully the complex interactions between the health of occupants and the interior spaces they inhabit. In this article we review recent advances in source characterization, exposure assessment, health effects associated with indoor exposures, and intervention research related to indoor environments. Advances in source characterization include a better understanding of how chemicals are transported and processed within spaces and the role that other factors such as lighting and building design may play in determining health. Efforts are under way to improve our ability to measure exposures, but this remains a challenge, particularly for biological agents. Researchers are also examining the effects of multiple exposures as well as the effects of exposures on vulnerable populations such as children and the elderly. In addition, a number of investigators are also studying the effects of modifying building design, materials, and operations on occupant health. Identification of research priorities should include input from building designers, operators, and the public health community.  (+info)

How did lightweight high-rise construction evolve since WWII? It evolved with the help of the so-called performance code. After WWII the builders complained about building codes. They said they were too restrictive and specified every detail of construction. They called the old building codes specification codes . They complained the codes specified the size and type and some times even the make of a product used in construction. They decried the specification code as old fashion. They wanted the building codes changed to what they called performance codes. They wanted the building codes to specify the performance requirements only; and, not specify the size and type of building material to use. For example, with fire resistive requirements they wanted the code to state just the hours of fire resistance (one, two, three or four hours) required by law; and not to state the specific type and material used to protect structural steel and enclosures for stairways and elevators shafts. For example, a ...

Achieve Energy Performance Goals for New Building Design. Attend the next Achieve Energy Performance Goals for New Building Design Internet presentation on Wed. November 27, 2:00-2:45 PM, EST. This presentation describes how to use ENERGY STARs software tool Target Finder, and how it complements energy simulation modeling and the LEED rating system. Target Finder takes rudimentary building and occupant data and yields the annual energy use value required if the building is to perform in the top 25 percent of U.S. building stock. The talk will also present strategies that will enhance performance and illustrates how building owners and designers can readily evaluate and achieve energy-based design targets. Decision-makers will learn how to set realistic goals for energy use and compare simulated results to their target. It will show designers how to compare energy simulation results to top performing buildings using Target Finder. The Target Finder and integrated design assistance has been ...
For more efficient, valuable, and sustainable buildings, it is critical to focus on engineered systems and building automation. In addition to driving the functionality and life cycle value of the most facilities, todays mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (M/E/P) and controls systems also account for a large percentage of the construction budget and the majority of the operating costs of most building types. Take this free AIA/CES course from Building Design+Construction.
The energy targets were established by A/E #1 using a BLAST modeling run. The base case building was designed to surpass ASHRAE 90.1, and it was anticipated that the sustainable building design would use 30% less energy annually than the base case design. The strategies implemented in order to save energy included increasing insulation levels in the roof and walls, super windows, high-efficiency indirect lighting, and task lighting that reduced ambient lighting levels from 50 fc to 35 fc, perforated blinds to assist in daylighting the space, lighting controls such as occupancy sensors and photoelectric dimming at the building perimeter, and borrowed light to help light adjacent spaces. This resulted in a substantially reduced electric load and reduced anticipated plug loads. As a result, the chiller and associated HVAC equipment, piping, ductwork, and HVAC feeder sizes could be reduced.. The shallow cross section of the building allows for good daylight penetration, and the courtyard ...
Handbook methods such as those presented in ASHRAEs Fundamentals Handbook or Bansal and Minkes Passive Building Design: A Handbook of Natural Climatic Control (ISBN: 044481745X) are very useful in calculating airflow from natural sources for very simple building geometries.. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD): In order to predict the details of natural airflow, numerical computational fluid mechanics models can be used. These computer simulations are detailed and labor intensive, but are justified where accurate understanding of airflow is important. They have been used to analyze new buildings including the atrium of a courthouse in Phoenix and the hangar of an air and space museum in the Washington, DC area.. An extensive list of journals, books, and other reference material regarding natural ventilation and other passive technologies is included in the Solstice Archive. For example:.

Starting with Windows 8, display miniport drivers need to specify the level of preemption granularity supported by the GPU when executing compute shader operations. Because engines on the same adapter may potentially support different preemption levels, the driver should report the coarsest granularity among all engines capable of executing a particular type of compute shader requests. For example, if one engine supports the preemption of primitive level graphics requests, and another engine supports the preemption of triangle level graphics requests, the driver should report primitive level graphics preemption capability for that adapter.. ...

Risk models that have a physical basis inherently allow improved forecasting of events and their impacts. This is particularly relevant for events in which the total risk might be affected by changes in the natural environment, such as through climate change, or by changes to the built environment as a result of new building codes and/or land-use planning decisions, or by changes to the social environment such as through increased public awareness.. Risk models can be used to perform cost-benefit analysis for various forms of mitigation involving short-term solutions, such as early warning and response, along with long-term resolution, such as land-use planning, improvements to building codes and infrastructure standards and retrofit of older buildings. Although some residual risk is inevitable, it can be moderated through insurance when it is available. Risk models can also be used to develop disaster scenarios for emergency response and recovery, to improve community awareness and to evaluate ...

November 29 2010: Glass balcony panels on the Festival Tower condo highrise in the Entertainment District. Two panels on the tower have broken this summer.. Danger zones: In the wake of media reports that more glass balcony panels have fallen from two different downtown condo towers this week, Im beginning to wonder if I should start wearing a hard hat whenever I leave my building. Seriously. Im not worried about walking below my own condo building - all of the balconies on our 30-year-old highrise have metal railings. But almost every day I do walk below new condo towers that have glass balconies, and I recently walked below two of the condo towers that made headlines with balcony glass breakage this week.. On July 19, I crossed a section of Grosvenor Street that, just two days later, was showered with pieces of glass that broke on two separate balconies at the Murano condo tower at 37 Grosvenor Street. This past Monday afternoon I nearly walked up Bay Street past the Murano, but changed my ...

This paper focuses on the signal preemption control of|i| emergency vehicles |/i|(EV). A signal preemption control method based on route is proposed to reduce time delay of EV at intersections. According to the time at which EV is detected and the current phase of each intersection on the travelling route of EV, the calculation methods of the earliest start time and the latest start time of green light at each intersection are given. Consequently, the effective time range of green light at each intersection is determined in theory. A multiobjective programming model, whose objectives are the minimal residence time of EV at all intersections and the maximal passing numbers of general society vehicles, is presented. Finally, a simulation calculation is carried out. Calculation results indicate that, by adopting the signal preemption method based on route, the delay of EV is reduced and the number of society vehicles passing through the whole system is increased. The signal preemption control method of EV

Each state in the USA has some regulatory mechanism to protect the health of its citizens living in multi-unit dwellings. The regulation may take the form of a sanitary code, a housing code, a landlord tenant regulation, or a municipal code. Each approach tends to set forth the standards by which some public health body may take action in the event of a violation, or grants rights to a resident whose health may be affected by his neighbours actions.. These regulations usually list specific examples of code violations, although the presence of ETS as a violation is unlikely. An important tool for the success of this approach is the presence, at the end of this list, of a "catch-all" clause using broad language of "other violations" as determined by the regulatory agency.8Regulation, case law or experience will determine the standard to be applied by a health inspector to such non-enumerated conditions (for example, the non-enumerated condition may have to "endanger health and safety/well being ...
Mumbai - the city of contrasts, is home for more than 20 million people. It is the financial centre and the most modern city in India. As most cities within developing countries Mumbai is striving to imitate the western model of growth and lifestyle to achieve a "developed" status. Motorization, especially private motorized modes, has become prioritized because they are seen as a big part of this development. This neglecting has also led to a significant prejudice against bicycle riding as a transport mode. Over 300 new cars are registered ever day in the city. Not only is congestion a big problem but pollution from vehicles are posing serious threats to peoples health and to the environment. 88% of the population is using public transport today but with a larger growing middle class, ready to buy private vehicles, traffic related problems are likely to worsen. The gap between rich and poor is increasing, parts of the population can hardly afford to use the public transport system. Even though ...
Chinese floating population residentsâ underprivileged living status and intensified social tension are becoming the two major issues inside their community living settlements. The thesis research holds the position that urban open space can enhance Chinese floating populationâ s quality of life and also contribute to the social capital within their living settlement. It is critical to create the open space system that brings great social and health benefits to the group. Literature reviews reveal floating populationâ s characteristics such as existing and potential leisure activities and leisure places. Contemporary thinking on urban open space qualities, benefits and typologies were reviewed to determine which types of open space are of value to this population. Specific qualities and corresponding benefits of floating population community open spaces, which are closely related to the groupâ s characteristics, are identified. Findings from the literature reviews were used to develop open ...
Nearshore habitats are critical habitat for fish and a wide variety of other organisms in the Salish Sea, and have been highly impacted by construction of erosion control structures. Recovery of Pacific salmon, several species of which are listed on the Endangered Species Act, is one current management goal. Soft shore protection has been increasingly applied in Puget Sound, but careful assessment and engineering criteria was lacking. The National Research Council investigated techniques nationally in 2007, with limited information. Additionally, site and drift cell assessment methods have not been previously defined to address these issues. The WDFW, WSDOT, WDOE and other partners who make up the Aquatic Habitat Guidelines group initiated the MSDG, published in 2014. The MSDG was developed to provide a comprehensive framework for site assessment and alternatives analysis to determine the need for shore protection and identify the technique that best suits the conditions at a given site, including where

Diamond-shaped glass in soft shades of pastel pink that compliment the golden light streaming out of the interior characterize the new Citroën showroom on Champs Elysées in Paris. Once inside, that pink turns to red. Say the architects, "We originally conceived the use of red, the brands signature colour, in the glass panels but we decided it would be too bright from the outside. There were some concerns about the building not harmonising with its neighbours on the Champs Elysées, so weve created a filter that on first sight, masks the red colour from the exterior. This totally original filter, which is cleverly constructed inside the finished glass, also minimises the heat of the sun passing through, and will also create a diaphanous pearly white atmosphere inside the building.". ...

Lawrence C. Holcomb, universally known as Larry Holcomb is a toxicologist who has his own sham air-testing company, Holcomb Environmental Services with one or two staff -- the most prominent of whom was Joe Pedelty. His companys pseudo testing of air quality and its willingness to attend symposia and give witness at hearings and court cases proved to be second only to Gray Robertsons Healthy Buildings International in the various ways they were able to offer services to the industry in their fight to prevent the regulation of smoking.. The companys main client was the Tobacco Institute, although other streams of cash came from individual companies in the tobacco industry -- particularly Philip Morris. Holcomb himself wrote papers, gave presentations, and acted as an expert witness supporting the industrys position, mainly that environmental tobacco smoke is not harmful and a minor component of the indoor air quality (IAQ) problem. Pedelty filled in when Holcomb wasnt available.. Holcombs ...

There are hundreds and hundreds of pollutants in the home. If you cant prioritize it makes it very hard to do anything," said Jennifer Logue, the lead author of the paper. "As a result of this study, we can not only say that all our ventilation standards should focus on [fine particles] we can also say, hey this is a really big deal because its as damaging to the health of the U.S. population as traffic accidents.". The average American spends 70 to 90 percent of their time indoors. Yet the ventilation standards in building codes meant to ensure decent indoor air quality are not based on science. "The standards are based on best engineering judgment," said Logue, an air quality engineer in the Residential Building Systems Group at Berkeley Lab. "They were not rigorously scientifically established, mainly because scientific knowledge had been lacking until recently. We are trying to rectify that.". Getting ventilation standards right is especially critical at this time with the push to make ...

The EU Energy Performance in Buildings Directive began implementation in Spain for new buildings (and major renovations) on 30 October 2007. Software tools were developed and distributed free of charge for residential and small business buildings as well as for large tertiary buildings. In addition, a simplified certification methodology for residential buildings was approved by Royal Decree 47/2007 on 19 January 2007. In the course of 2007 several regualtions were passed on the energy efficiency of buildings, notably the Building Energy Certification (CER) and the Regulations on Building Heating Installations (RITE), approved by Royal Decrees RD 47/2007 and RD 1027/2007 respectively. These approvals together with the Technical Building Code (TBC) contribute to the partial transposition of the Directive 2002/91/EC on the energy efficiency of buildings into the Spanish legislation. The TBC includes a Basic Energy Saving Document and covers regulations on: 1)Limitations on energy demand (heating ...
QFT perfectly proved to be the construction of nonresidential buildings, including office buildings, schools, churches, shopping centers and public buildings. They are especially profitable when client, designer and contractor willing to obtain optimum strength, comfort, durability and efficiency. Tests were carried out from the wall thickness of 11 cm KTP, and results were compared with results of conventional tests wooden walls. Thus, the insulating properties of the walls of the CFT is higher than that of thicker timbered walls. The tests, which funded the Association of quantum field theory, showed that the attachment plates is not subcooling sections. This differs from the wooden walls of QFT, where it is found during verification, every nail creates a cold spot. The advantage of QFT is that they almost completely eliminate subcooling sections, thus creating more comfortable conditions for life. KTP were tested for structural integrity and fire resistance required by building codes. Load ...

In construction, waterproofing is very important on a number of different levels. First of all, the entire structure needs to be waterproofed in some way, because any type of moisture in the wood structure can cause rot. This can result in a weakening of the structure, which can later lead to severe structural problems that are more expensive in the long run.. There are different types of waterproofing that must take place. A couple of very important places are the foundation and the basement. Many people have to deal with water problems in their basement, which can cause a musty smell to rise up in the house and a plethora of other issues in the basement. As for the foundation, it can start to crack causing a weakening effect in the structure, which can be dangerous. Even condensation in these areas can be rather problematic.. Foundations are usually only dam proofed and not fully waterproofed. The same goes for basements, because building codes in many states only require that these areas be ...
I have a plot of land that I cannot find the square footage of. Actually my home sits on a large lot. Local building codes require that a home is seated on no less than 7500 square feet of land and have no less than 50ft of road frontage (the rear of the lot has 65ft of frontage on another road). I need to know if I have enough square footage to build a second home on the rear lot. The lot has five sides. Only one angle is a 90 deg. angle. The others I cannot determine. Of the 4 remaining angles, all 4 angles are obtuse, or greater than 90 deg. The dementions are 89.19 x 130 x 118.52 x 65 x 170.94. The two legs that make the 90 deg angle are 89.19 and 170.94. The measurements fall in order using the 90 deg angle as the point of origin and proceeding clockwise, 89.19, 130, 118.52, 65, 170.94.

construction sound and transportation sound, such as airplanes, automobiles, and trains. It has a variety of negative effects including high blood pressure[2] as well as lost sleep and psychological problems.[3] In addition, noise from military sonar is believed to be one of reasons whales beach themselves.[4] For an added bonus, animals are driven out of their habitats by the noise. Governments up until the 1970s viewed noise as a "nuisance" rather than an environmental problem. In the United States there are federal standards for highway and aircraft noise; states and local governments typically have very specific statutes on building codes, urban planning and roadway development. In Canada and the EU there are few national, provincial, or state laws that protect against noise. The notable exception: Portland, Oregon where you can be fined up to $5000 dollars. ...

Luckily for Parvo, the city lacked building codes, allowing structures to be built very close together and making it easy for him to leap across rooftops. The sound of shouts followed by the now recognizable sound of a door being battered down, caused him to crouch and crouch behind a chimney and gather his bearings. Patrols of police going door to door had forced a zig zag pattern towards the brimstone tower, or at least towards where Mokrado had assured him where it was located. He turned to look at her, and found her standing two roofs back, looking confused.. Mokrados belly felt sick and icy. She had left her axe back in the room. She had lusted after that axe since she was little more than a hatchling. Fifteen years she dreamt and plotted how to kill its owner and take it for herself. She wanted to go back for it. She couldnt go back for it. She had to go back for it.. "Whats wrong?" whispered Parvo as he came trotting back up to her.. "My axe." She hosted the unconscious witch off her ...

Holy Guacamole! There are so many things screwed up here Im not sure where to begin: basic geometry, building codes, re-sale of your house, and plain ol common-friggin-sense. Lets start with the basics.. Come with me now on a journey back through time, all the way back to when you were just a devilish glint in yo daddys eye… Ok, not that far back, but lets go back to 8th grade geometry class, you know, the one where you were too busy trying to look up Mrs. Sopers dress to learn how to calculate the area of a circle. Anyway, Mrs. Soper was trying to tell you that to calculate the area of a circle, you multiply the constant PI (3.14) times the square of the radius, like ahso:. A = PI * R^2. Reducing the diameter from 4″ to 3″ (a 25% reduction in diameter, by the way) may not sound like much, but look at the equation for area again. Area varies with the square of the radius. This means little reductions in radius, make for big reductions in cross-sectional flow area. In your case, ...
Those are some of the key findings of a new report that looks at the stakeholder experience with home sprinklers in California and Maryland, the only two states in the country with mandatory requirements for home fire sprinklers. The report, "Stakeholder Perceptions of Home Fire Sprinklers," was commissioned by the Fire Protection Research Foundation and is based on market research, conducted by Newport Partners, that focuses on homeowners, local government officials, and water purveyors. As more states and jurisdictions consider sprinkler adoption, it was considered an opportune moment to gauge stakeholder perceptions in states with widespread adoption. Key findings include: Homeowners. The majority of homeowners have a very positive view of sprinklers and would seek to have them included in their next home. Their positive view is most clearly associated with a sense of improved life safety (94 percent). The majority of homeowners did not worry about water damage, though 32 percent indicated ...

PY - 2009/1. Y1 - 2009/1. N2 - This study suggests a multivariate-structural approach combining factor analysis and cluster analysis that could be used to examine neighborhood effects on an individuals health. Data were from the Taiwan Social Change Survey conducted in 1990, 1995, and 2000. In total, 5,784 women and men aged over 20 years living in 428 neighborhoods were interviewed. Participants addresses were geocoded with census data for measuring neighborhood-level characteristics. The factor analysis was applied to identify neighborhood dimensions, which were used as entities in the cluster analysis to generate a neighborhood typology. The factor analysis generated three neighborhood dimensions: neighborhood education, age structure, and neighborhood family structure and employment. The cluster analysis ...
Wolfgang first reviews his personal contacts with criminal justice professionals and criminologists in China, followed by an overview of crime and justice in China. He reports an increase in the crime rate in recent years and a policy of severe punishment for serious criminals; 40 percent of offenders are sentenced to fixed terms of 5 years or more. The seminar then turns to the 1973 birth cohort study for a Chinese city. Data are being collected by trained researchers from police records, household census data, and interviews with neighborhood committees, school personnel, and parents. The birth cohort consists of 5,300 subjects. Of these, only 81 subjects (76 males and 5 females) have committed known delinquent acts. This is the smallest percentage of delinquents in any birth-cohort study in any country. Wolfgang presents findings from a comparison of the characteristics of the delinquent group with a sample nondelinquent group. Differences are noted in the areas of educational achievement, ...
OBJECTIVE--To examine the relation between ventilation rate and occurrence of symptoms of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin as well as general symptoms such as lethargy and headache, often termed the sick building syndrome. METHODS--A cross sectional population based study was carried out in 399 workers from 14 mechanically ventilated office buildings without air recirculation or humidification, selected randomly from the Helsinki metropolitan area. The ventilation type and other characteristics of these buildings were recorded on a site visit and the ventilation in the rooms was assessed by measuring the airflow through the exhaust air outlets in the room. A questionnaire directed at workers inquired about the symptoms and perceived air quality and their possible personal and environmental determinants (response rate 81%). The outcomes were weekly work related symptoms experienced during the previous 12 months and symptom groups defined either by their anatomical location or hypothesised ...
