Variations in infant mortality rates among municipalities in the state of Ceara, Northeast Brazil: an ecological analysis. (1/948)

BACKGROUND: Infant mortality rates vary substantially among municipalities in the State of Ceara, from 14 to 193 per 1000 live births. Identification of the determinants of these differences can be of particular importance to infant health policy and programmes in Brazil where local governments play a pivotal role in providing primary health care. METHODS: Ecological study across 140 municipalities in the State of Ceara, Brazil. RESULTS: To determine the interrelationships between potential predictors of infant mortality, we classified 11 variables into proximate determinants (adequate weight gain and exclusively breastfeeding), health services variables (prenatal care up-to-date, participation in growth monitoring, immunization up-to-date, and decentralization of health services), and socioeconomic factors (female literacy rate, household income, adequate water supply, adequate sanitation, and per capita gross municipality product), and included the variables in each group simultaneously in linear regression models. In these analyses, only one of the proximate determinants (exclusively breastfeeding (inversely), R2 = 9.3) and one of the health services variables (prenatal care up-to-date (inversely), R2 = 22.8) remained significantly associated with infant mortality. In contrast, female literacy rate (inversely), household income (directly) and per capita GMP (inversely) were independently associated with the infant mortality rate (for the model including the three variables R2 = 25.2). Finally, we considered simultaneously the variables from each group, and selected a model that explained 41% of the variation in infant mortality rates between municipalities. The paradoxical direct association between household income and infant mortality was present only in models including female illiteracy rate, and suggests that among these municipalities, increases in income unaccompanied by improvements in female education may not substantially reduce infant mortality. The lack of independent associations between inadequate sanitation and infant mortality rates may be due to the uniformly poor level of this indicator across municipalities and provides no evidence against its critical role in child survival. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that promotion of exclusive breastfeeding and increased prenatal care utilization, as well as investments in female education would have substantial positive effects in further reducing infant mortality rates in the State of Ceara.  (+info)

Geographical patterns of excess mortality in Spain explained by two indices of deprivation. (2/948)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To analyse the geographical patterns and the magnitude of the association between deprivation and mortality in Spain. To estimate the excess of mortality in more deprived areas of the country by region. DESIGN: Cross sectional ecological study using 1991 census variables and mortality data for 1987-1992. SETTING: 2220 small areas in Spain. MAIN RESULTS: A geographical gradient from north east to south west was shown by both mortality and deprivation levels in Spain. Two dimensions of deprivation (that is, Index 1 and Index 2) obtained by exploratory factor analysis using four census indicators were found to predict mortality: mortality over 65 years of age was more associated with Index 1, while mortality under 65 years of age was more associated with Index 2. Excess mortality in the most deprived areas accounted for about 35,000 deaths. CONCLUSIONS: Two indices of deprivation strongly predict mortality in two age groups. Excess number of deaths in the most deprived geographical areas account for 10% of total number of deaths annually. In Spain there is great potential for reducing mortality if the excess risk in more deprived areas fell to the level of the most affluent areas.  (+info)

Isolation, cultivation, and characterization of Borrelia burgdorferi from rodents and ticks in the Charleston area of South Carolina. (3/948)

Twenty-eight Borrelia burgdorferi isolates from the Charleston, S.C., area are described. This represents the first report and characterization of the Lyme disease spirochete from that state. The isolates were obtained from December 1994 through December 1995 from the tick Ixodes scapularis, collected from vegetation, and from the rodents Peromyscus gossypinus (cotton mouse), Neotoma floridana (eastern wood rat), and Sigmodon hispidus (cotton rat). All isolates were screened immunologically by indirect immunofluorescence with monoclonal antibodies to B. burgdorferi-specific outer surface protein A (OspA) (antibodies H5332 and H3TS) and B. burgdorferi-specific OspB (antibodies H6831 and H614), a Borrelia (genus)-specific antiflagellin antibody (H9724), Borrelia hermsii-specific antibodies (H9826 and H4825), and two polyclonal antibodies (one to Borrelia species and another to B. burgdorferi). Six of the isolates were analyzed by exposing Western blots to monoclonal antibodies H5332, H3TS, H6831, and H9724. All isolates were also analyzed by PCR with five pairs of primers known to amplify selected DNA target sequences specifically reported to be present in the reference strain, B. burgdorferi B-31. The protein profiles of six of the isolates (two from ticks, one from a cotton mouse, two from wood rats, and one from a cotton rat) also were compared by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. We conclude that the 28 Charleston isolates are B. burgdorferi sensu stricto based on their similarities to the B. burgdorferi B-31 reference strain.  (+info)

Analysis of falling mortality rates in Edinburgh and Glasgow. (4/948)

BACKGROUND: The aims of the study were to describe and interpret trends in mortality in Glasgow and Edinburgh METHODS: A comparison was made between observed all-cause and cause-specific mortality rates for 1989-1993 for men and women aged 35-74 and rates predicted on the basis of modelled mortality data for residents of Glasgow and Edinburgh aged 25-74 in quinquennia based on Census years 1961, 1971 and 1981. RESULTS: All-cause mortality rates fell between 1979-1983 and 1989-1993 by a larger amount in Edinburgh than in Glasgow (24.5 versus 14.5 per cent in men; 20.4 versus 10.5 per cent in women). Differences in life expectancy between the cities at age 35 increased by 44 per cent to 4.7 years in men and by 19 per cent to 2.5 years in women. Mortality rates improved in all age and sex groups but trends were least favourable in Edinburgh men and women aged 35-44. Mortality rates in both cities fell by a larger amount than predicted, by 10 per cent in men and 6 per cent in women. CONCLUSIONS: The widening of differences in life expectancy between Glasgow and Edinburgh is mainly due to a historical trend of longevity increasing more quickly in Edinburgh. Although precise explanations are not possible, it seems likely that this difference between the cities is explained in large measure by their consistently and markedly contrasting socio-economic profiles. Comparison of the cities conceals, however, a trend of falling mortality rates in both populations, comprising most of the observed reduction in mortality rates in Glasgow, which appears to result in part from factors operating in the short term. Interpretation of trends in cause-specific mortality rates needs to take account of the possibility of long-term and short-term trends in all-cause mortality in different social groups.  (+info)

An international comparison of cancer survival: relatively poor areas of Toronto, Ontario and three US metropolitan areas. (5/948)

BACKGROUND: This study of cancer survival compared adults in Toronto, Ontario and three US metropolitan areas: Seattle, Washington; San Francisco, California; and Hartford, Connecticut. It examined whether socioeconomic status has a differential effect on cancer survival in Canada and the United States. METHODS: The Ontario Cancer Registry and the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology and End RESULTS: (SEER) programme provided a total of 23,437 and 37,329 population-based primary malignant cancer cases for the Toronto and US samples, respectively (1986-1988, followed until 1994). Census-based measures of socioeconomic status were used to ecologically control absolute income status. RESULTS: Among residents of low-income areas, persons in Toronto experienced a 5 year survival advantage for 13 of 15 cancer sites [minimally one gender significant at 95 per cent confidence interval (CI)]. An aggregate 35 per cent survival advantage among the Canadian cohort was demonstrated (survival rate ratio (SRR) = 1.35, 95 per cent CI= 1.30-1.40), and this effect was even larger among younger patients not yet eligible for Medicare coverage in the United States (SRR = 1.46, 95 per cent CI = 1.40-1.52). CONCLUSION: Systematically replicating a previous Toronto-Detroit comparison, this study's observed consistent pattern of Canadian survival advantage across various cancer sites suggests that their more equitable access to preventive and therapeutic health care services may be responsible for the difference.  (+info)

An explanation of the persistent doctor-mortality association. (6/948)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to explain the persistent but puzzling positive correlation of physicians per capita and mortality rates, when income is controlled, which has been reported many times since it was first observed in 1978. The explanation that is proposed and tested is that expanding urban-industrial regions attract an oversupply of doctors. Also, but independently, rural people migrate to urban-industrial areas where they suffer from the stress of adapting to urban-industrial life. Consequently, their death rates rise. SOURCE MATERIAL: Using data from the 47 Japanese prefectures, the 3000+ counties of the USA and a set of 29 mostly European countries, the explanation was examined by adding the appropriate test variable to a basic equation linking physicians per capita to mortality, net of income. RESULTS: The test variables dissolved or reduced the original correlation in two of the three samples, but the signs did not change from positive to negative, as would be expected on the basis of conventional biomedical theory. The available test variable (refugees) did not reduce the correlation for the 29 countries but a particular subset of countries was identified that did. CONCLUSION: The conceptual and empirical analysis exposed the positive correlation as spurious, but the availability of medical specialists had little impact on mortality rates in competition with the social and economic variables that were used as controls.  (+info)

Microbial etiology of community-acquired pneumonia in the adult population of 4 municipalities in eastern Finland. (7/948)

To determine the etiology of community-acquired pneumonia in the adult population of a defined area, specific antibody responses in paired serum samples, levels of circulating pneumococcal immune complexes in serum samples, and pneumococcal antigen in urine were measured. Samples (304 paired serum samples and 300 acute urine samples) were obtained from 345 patients > or =15 years old with community-acquired, radiologically confirmed pneumonia, which comprised all cases in the population of 4 municipalities in eastern Finland during 1 year. Specific infecting organisms were identified in 183 patients (including 49 with mixed infection), as follows: Streptococcus pneumoniae, 125 patients; Haemophilus influenzae, 12; Moraxella catarrhalis, 8; chlamydiae, 37 (of which, Chlamydia pneumoniae, 30); Mycoplasma pneumoniae, 30; and virus species, 27. The proportion of patients with pneumococcal infections increased and of those with Mycoplasma infections decreased with age, but for each age group, the etiologic profile was similar among inpatients and among outpatients. S. pneumoniae was the most important etiologic agent. The annual incidence of pneumococcal pneumonia per 1000 inhabitants aged > or =60 years was 8.0.  (+info)

Fine particulate matter and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon concentration patterns in Roxbury, Massachusetts: a community-based GIS analysis. (8/948)

Given an elevated prevalence of respiratory disease and density of pollution sources, residents of Roxbury, Massachusetts, have been interested in better understanding their exposures to air pollution. To determine whether local transportation sources contribute significantly to exposures, we conducted a community-based pilot investigation to measure concentrations of fine particulate matter (particulate matter < 2.5 microm; PM(2.5)) and particle-bound polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in Roxbury in the summer of 1999. Community members carried portable monitors on the streets in a 1-mile radius around a large bus terminal to create a geographic information system (GIS) map of concentrations and gathered data on site characteristics that could predict ambient concentrations. Both PM(2.5) and PAH concentrations were greater during morning rush hours and on weekdays. In linear mixed-effects regressions controlling for temporal autocorrelation, PAH concentrations were significantly higher with closer proximity to the bus terminal (p < 0.05), and both pollutants were elevated, but not statistically significantly so, on bus routes. Regressions on a subset of measurements for which detailed site characteristics were gathered showed higher concentrations of both pollutants on roads reported to have heavy bus traffic. Although a more comprehensive monitoring protocol would be needed to develop robust predictive functions for air pollution, our study demonstrates that pollution patterns in an urban area can be characterized with limited monitoring equipment and that university-community partnerships can yield relevant exposure information.  (+info)

The city centre is the (often historical) area of a city where commerce, entertainment, shopping, and political power are concentrated. The term is commonly used in many English-speaking countries and has direct equivalents in many other languages. However, noticeably, in the United States, the term downtown is commonly used to denote a city centre, and in Canada the terms city centre and downtown are used interchangeably. In Australia, the term Central Business District is widely used to refer to the city centre, but usage of the term City Centre is increasing, especially in Melbourne. In South Africa, CBD is used in formal contexts, but in informal contexts, the city centre is referred to as town, and despite the growth of decentralised CBDs such as Sandton and Umhlanga town continues to refer to the original CBDs of cities. In many cities, the Central Business District (CBD) is within the city centre, but the concept city centre differs from the CBD. The concept of the CBD ...
Source: UN-HABITAT 2008. Data from UN Population Division, World Urbanization Prospects 2007. Figures for 2025 are projections. Note: Population figures are for urban agglomeration, not city proper. Megacities are cities with populations of more than 10 million.. By 2030, about 450 million people may be living in megacities. That will represent only 5-6 percent of the projected global population of about 8 billion. Many of those people will be very poor, and some will be very rich. In any case, the megacities, as centers of finance, governance, manufacturing, commerce, and culture will be powerful forces of change in the world, either for good or ill, or both.. Characteristics of megacities and the threats and opportunities that may arise from them have been noted by many authors. Energy use in cities can be more efficient, due to higher population densities, but higher population densities along with weaknesses in freshwater, food, and energy availability and waste treatment processes can ...

Brenda Song, Amphibia, Kermit The Frog and Big City Greens will get together at D23 for a special question and answer session on Saturday, August 24th. We know that D23 is not just about the parks, and to have two of our favorite shows get together to answer some questions makes just quite happy.. As we get closer to D23, it is not all about the amusement parks and we love seeing Kermit The Frog get together to do these events with the Amphibia and Big City Greens teams. While we dont think that there will be any big announcements about either show, it will be fun to hear what the cast and creators have to say about the journey itself. Hey we wouldnt mind a collaboration between the shows and the parks for some fun. Can you imagine an Amphibia ride? How about a Big City Greens ride? A pipe dream for sure, but if we could see some hint of the shows at the parks that would make us excited, like they did with Kim Possible or Phineas and Ferb.

This paper provides the first estimate of energy and material flows in the worlds 27 megacities (cities with over 10 million inhabitants). These megacities are home to 6.7 per cent of the worlds population, but consume 9.3 per cent of global electricity and produce 12.6 per cent of global waste. The authors establish statistical relations for energy use, transport, water use, waste and so forth and factors such as average temperature, urban form, level and type of economic activity, and population growth. This allows the researchers to evaluate which cities have high versus low levels of consumption and which ones make efficient use of resources. ...

Leith is the port and waterfront of the city of Edinburgh, and like many similar areas in other cities it has undergone major redevelopment in recent years. The landscape has a strong industrial and historical feel, but dramatic regeneration has seen office blocks, shopping complexes and luxury flats radically change the skyline. For me, this contrast makes it a fascinating place to wander and observe - a landscape of constant change, with diverse architectural styles and building types alongside open areas of land in transition.. This series of photographs, taken between 2010 and 2013, aims to explore the effects of these rapid changes on the landscape of Leith.. It wasnt a body of work that was pre-conceived. I initially visited Leith as part of my Out of the Ordinary project, quite early on. I spent a morning there just wandering and was really taken by the diversity of interest. It struck me that there was a slightly different story, or subject, to capture here - a landscape in constant ...

Bangladesh is a developing country with a very high population density. The country has 160 million populations with a small area of only 147, 570 km . Currently, the population density is around 1200 persons per km 2 which is 50 times higher than the global average density of population, 3 times that of our neighbor India, 7 times that of China and 35 times that of the United States of America. The density in urban areas, particularly within Dhaka Megacity remains very high. The average density within the 1500 km 2 DMC region was over 10,000 persons per km 2 2 . in 2011 Census. However, within the urban built up area the density mostly varied from 20,000 to 75,000 persons per km . In some parts of the city, mostly at the older part, the density was found as high as over 200,000 inhabitants per km 2 2 . This thesis mainly deals with the population dynamics of Dhaka Megacity (DMC), more particularly the distribution and variation of population density and growth within the DMC region in recent ...
These farms will be grown and managed using composted organic waste water. The farms will also accommodate for air purification and growing plants without soil (in water containing dissolved nutrients). Farm hubs will expanded along with the roadways. They will connect to other farm hubs. Since farms are hydroponic, there is no requirement of maintenance of soil, just nutritional water will do. Farms connecting with other farms offers endless infrastructure possibilities for farmers. It also acts as a mechanism to build outdoor living spaces full of greenery. Hybrid urbanization is the reality even if it is in the conceptual stage now. Very soon, lack of space will create such needs. This conceptual project is a result of fore thinking. Thinking ahead of the times is the best way to prepare for the inevitable. The inevitable being hybrid urban landscapes.. ...
A stroll through many American urban landscapes confirms that music is as much a political phenomenon as a sonic one. A walker realizes this without ever hearing a note.

In San Francisco, the hulking, de-ornamented Beaux-Arts façade of War Memorial Opera House stands opposite the Roman splendor of the Civic Centers Michelangeline dome, like a Parisian dandy and an Italian pope eyeing one another from the far ends of an empty dance floor. The intervening street (Van Ness Avenue) and plaza may provide space for human activity, but their lowliness only augments the entwined majesty of high culture and governmental power..
