Dengue virus (DENV) affects nonimunne human populations in tropical and subtropical regions. In the Americas, dengue has drastically increased in the last two decades and Brazil is considered one of the most affected countries. The high frequency of asymptomatic infection makes difficult to estimate prevalence of infection using registered cases and to locate high risk intra-urban area at population level. The goal of this spatial point analysis was to identify potential high-risk intra-urban areas of dengue, using data collected at household level from surveys. Two household surveys took place in the city of Goiania (~1.1 million population), Central Brazil in the year 2001 and 2002. First survey screened 1,586 asymptomatic individuals older than 5 years of age. Second survey 2,906 asymptomatic volunteers, same age-groups, were selected by multistage sampling (census tracts; blocks; households) using available digital maps. Sera from participants were tested by dengue virus-specific IgM/IgG by EIA. A
Many factors could be co-related with psychological distress in secondary school adolescents. Few of such factors are the style parents adopt in raising their adolescents, and the family characteristics in which adolescents are nurtured. This study was designed to look at the relationship between parenting style/family characteristics and adolescents’ psychological distress. Specifically, the study was designed to investigate the styles that parents adopt in raising their children, the family characteristics of adolescents, such as the family type, the family size and parental figure, and how these variables can contribute to psychological distress among secondary school adolescents. To guide the study, six hypotheses were formulated. The descriptive survey was adopted for the study, in which five schools were randomly selected for the study; selection of schools was restricted to only mixed gender schools in order to make comparisons easier. 40 students were selected from each of the schools
That said, most older Australians own their home, so the cost of living for these people is not substantially affected by accommodation costs. For example, in 2002-03, for reference persons aged 55 years or over living in private dwellings, 72% owned their home outright, and for those aged 65 years or over the outright ownership rate was 80%. Thus, for households where the reference person was aged 55 years or over (the age group most relevant to grandparent families), the housing costs were lower than for other households. In 2002-03, housing costs for households where the reference person was aged 55 years or over were just over one quarter of the housing costs of other households. As a proportion of gross household income, the housing costs of the older households were 6% - less than half the proportion they were for other households. ...
Three waves of data were collected, in addition to detailed information about program group members participation and engagement in SHM services. The first wave of data was collected when families first enrolled in the SHM study, just prior to being randomly assigned. Husbands and wives were asked to complete a set of baseline instruments that capture socio-demographic and other characteristics such as employment, education, household composition, marital quality and satisfaction, and prior life experiences. The second wave of data was collected approximately 12 months after families first entered the study, through an adult follow-up survey and an observational study. All husbands and wives were asked to complete a follow-up survey (10,181 respondents). The survey includes measures of household composition, marital stability, marital quality, parental psychological well-being, parental employment and economic outcomes, material and financial hardship, social support and networks, coparenting ...

This study looks at household contacts of a notified pertussis case and the impact that vaccination and antibiotic usage has on transmission. It identifies several methodological problems with household studies of pertussis including selection bias if using notified cases, lack of consistency in sensitivity when using case definition/clinical history to determine case status, and the importance of controlling for antibiotic treatment in studies of household transmission estimating vaccine effectiveness.
Internal to the model the denominator of this equation is referred to as the household intensity, which falls as the pre-work age term rises. Thus the household size rises with the pre-work age term.. There is an additive shift factor calculated in the first year of the model run to assure a match of the calculated and empirical values; that shift factor decays to zero over 100 years.. ...

A total of 400 households were selected and administered questionnaire, but 386 households returned their questionnaire. The data collected for this study were analyzed using factor analysis because of its ability to reduce large variables to manageable factors. Using factor analysis based on Kaiser Principle, two factors ...
Downloadable! In this paper the role of family structure in mitigating income volatility in the absence of income insurance in low-income agricultural environments is discussed. Hypotheses concerning the relationship between the membership, size and composition of households and insurance-based income transfers are tested using longitudinal data from India. A test is also performed of whether a households ability to reduce risk ex post via family arrangements affects its willingness tobear risk ex ante through its selection of formal tenancy contracts. The results support these hypotheses concerning the risk-mitigating roles of both household structure and share contracts, and indicate as well the importance of heterogeneity in risk-aversion across households.
SUMMARY. In this paper nonparametric Kernel smoothing technique is used to determine the functional form of the engel curves of some selected commodities separately for household groups with different household occupations, social classes and household compositions. The performances of these are compared with those of some popular parametric engel curves using the NSS 38th round household level data of rural Maharashtra. The rank of the demand system consisting of these commodities is determined using the rank test of Lewbel (1991) and Gill and Lewbel(1992) and the likelihood ratio test.

Lulu Nair at a panel at IAS 2017 , DTHF. Dr Millicent Atujuna presented her research on how family household structures can affect whether adolescents take the HIV-prevention drug, PrEP. Youth are a key population that are vulnerable to unique barriers when accessing HIV prevention tools, including prejudices at home. The study, that took place in Cape Town, South Africa, questions 50 participants who were HIV negative and sexually active to explore what sorts of familial support are available.. Three main types of family support structure were found: the close-knit family who actively support their childrens prevention choices, the loose-knit family who gave no support and the family that gave passive support. The majority of the adolescents had disclosed their PrEP usage to the family, but over a quarter had kept it a secret. Atujuna commented that "In general, we found support to be fundamental to PrEP use; however, family support empowered youth more than partner support, highlighting its ...

This paper will have three parts. Firstly, it will review existing literature on the role of grandparents as child-carers. Secondly, it will offer new evidence from the UK Time Use Survey on the amounts of time spend by women and men over the age of 45 in providing childcare to other households, and the number of hours of care received by children from their grandparents, differentiating both care-giving and care-receiving generations by age, employment status, occupation and region. Thirdly, these findings are combined with demographic evidence about the likelihood that mothers in successive cohorts have had their own mother still alive and well, living in the same local authority district and not employed full-time, during the period when their first child was aged 3-11..

The Swedish households debt relative to income has increased for some time now, with the Riksbanks executive board expressing its concern for the risk it brings. It has been debated whether or not to take the high indebtedness into account when setting the policy rate. There is at the same time no consensus about the relationship between the repo rate and household debt. This study aims to examine the effect of a change in the repo rate on household debt-to-income ratio, using a VAR-model. The result is that a 1 percentage point shock to the repo rate for one quarter will have a negative impact on the household debt-to-income ratio by 1.75 percentage points after about 8 quarters. However this may not decrease the risk associated with the debt due to higher unemployment. ...

Household food security continues to weaken as the current consumption period progresses, according to the Namibia Early Warning and Food Information Unit (NEWFIU). Most households interviewed revealed that last seasons harvest is diminishing and is currently being supplemented with market purchases to prolong its availability, NEWFIU said.. Many farmers have reported that there will be no significant improvement to household food security this season due to poor rainfall. "In a normal situation household food security starts to improve around March when the green harvests such as maize, cow peas, and squash become available and ready for consumption until the main harvest," said NEWFIU ...
Currently, family planning metrics derived from nationally-representative household surveys such as the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) categorise women into those desiring to space or limit (permanently stop) births, or according to their age in the case of young women. This conceptualisation potentially ignores a large and growing group of young women who desire to delay a first birth. This study uses household survey data to investigate the characteristics and needs for family planning of women who want to delay their first birth. The research was conducted in two rural districts in southern Tanzania (Tandahimba and Newala), and nested within the Expanded Quality Management Using Information Power (EQUIP) study. Data were collected as part of a repeated cross sectional household survey conducted between September 2013 and April 2014. The socio-demographic characteristics, including parity, contraceptive practices and fertility intentions of 2128 women aged 13-49 were analysed. The association

Assessing the relationship between socio-cultural factors and varieties richness at household level, no significant association was found between the number of varieties held by household and the age of the respondent, number of years of experience in pigeonpea cultivation, the size of household and number of family members engaged in agricultural activities. This finding does not substantiate our hypothesis and this could be due to the fact that the majority of farmers maintained and cultivated one variety at household level (very low varieties richness). In addition, even though pigeonpea plays an important role in food security, especially during lean season, the crop is not considered by farmers as a priority crop and they do not apply any external inputs and its cultivation does not need special skills. Thus, access to knowledge and resources, which are determined by social cultural and economic factors [3], may not have affected pigeonpea varieties richness. The absence of significant ...

The surge in property prices over the last eight years has seen housing leap ahead of pensions, insurance and equities as a proportion of household savings.. A report from the Office for National Statistics shows the value of residential property held by households soared from 1,200bn to 3,200bn between December 1996 and December 2004. Housing accounts for 46 per cent of household assets compared with 34 per cent in 1996. The proportion of insurance and pension policies has fal- len from 30 per cent of household assets to 24 per cent. The proportion of household assets invested as deposits with banks and building societies dipped slightly from 13 per cent to 12 per cent while equities shrank from 11 per cent to 7 per cent. The value of assets excluding housing rose by 53 per cent from 2,078bn to 3,179bn but, with housing included, the total almost doubled from 3,600bn to 7,000bn in 2004. Building Societies Association director-general Adrian Coles says: "The statistics show a fundamental change ...

The total fuel consumption in the study area was 111.49×106 kcal/month. The study concluded that income was an important factor in making fuel preferences at household level.. ...
the symptoms of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, many thyroid blood testing tests are readily available, and will most likely be asked for by yourhealthcare skilled, which are necessary for the correct diagnosis of individuals signs and symptoms. They are going to need to take in not only the level of T3 and T4 but also the amount of free T3 & T4 hormones. Only checking levels of T3 and T4 can return a result of no apparent thyroid disorder, just altered levels of the hormones. This gives a better insight into any possible thyroid gland malfunction and takes away the possibility of misdiagnosis.. Another hormone that should be checked for is thyroid stimulating hormone, frequently expressed as TSH. Too much or too little can point towards either an over active or under active thyroid. Then there is the thyroid anti-bodies test. The presence of anti-bodies can suggest that the body is attacking its own thyroid cells. Known as an autoimmune condition, this can lead to Hashimotos disease ...

Smart meters for measuring electricity consumption are fast becoming prevalent in households. The meters measure consumption on a very fine scale, usually on a 15 min basis, and the data give unprecedented granularity of consumption patterns at household level. A multitude of papers have emerged utilizing smart meter data for deepening our knowledge of consumption patterns. This paper applies a modification of Okolis method for conducting structured literature reviews to generate an overview of research in electricity customer classification using smart meter data. The process assessed 2099 papers before identifying 34 significant papers, and highlights three key points: prominent methods, datasets and application. Three important findings are outlined. First, only a few papers contemplate future applications of the classification, rendering papers relevant only in a classification setting. Second; the encountered classification methods do not consider correlation or time series analysis when

Can the source provide sufficient water immediately? Will the source provide sufficient water in all seasons? Is the source adequate in all seasons? How close is the supply to the refugees shelters? What is the current consumption of water and is it adequate for all purposes? Is there evidence of a severe water-related disease problem (skin disease, typhoid, diarrhoea)? Is there any danger of the source being contaminated from latrines, livestock or (in the case of rivers) other camps and settlements upstream? Is there any danger of contamination to settlements downstream? Is the water tested regularly? Is it tested at source, during distribution, or at household level? Is there any system of water treatment? Is the method of treatment sustainable? If a pump is used, how is it serviced and what contingency plans are ...
OBJECTIVE: To elucidate whether family characteristics and stressful life events were associated with onset of autoimmune type 1 diabetes in young adults.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This investigation was based on a nationwide study (Diabetes Incidence Study in Sweden) of newly diagnosed patients aged 15-34 years. Patients clinically classified as type 1 diabetic with antibodies to islet cells and/or to GAD65 were compared with age- and sex-matched control subjects via questionnaire. The questionnaire covered diabetes heredity, social environment, educational level, and life events experienced during the 12 months before diagnosis.. RESULTS: The rate of response was 82% for the diabetic patients and 65% for the control subjects. Questionnaires from 349 diabetic patients and 979 control subjects were considered. Diabetes in relatives was more frequent in the patients (odds ratio [OR]2.6) who were born in Sweden and whose mothers were of Swedish origin. No major stress factors were detected in ...

Each year a portion of American households are food insecure-they struggle to afford enough food for all household members. Very low food security, the severe range of food insecurity, affected 5 percent of U.S. households in 2015. Members of households with very low food security reported cutting back on or skipping meals, and in some cases, going a whole day without eating. The prevalence of very low food security varies considerably across household characteristics. Single mother and single father households, women and men living alone, Black non-Hispanic and Hispanic headed households, households with incomes near or below poverty, and households in nonmetropolitan counties have rates of very low food security significantly above the national average. Rates were highest for households with incomes below the Federal poverty line-about 17 percent were very low food secure in 2015. This chart is drawn from a chart that appears in the ERS infographic, "What Is Very Low Food Security and Who ...

In many countries the residential sector contributes significantly to peak demand. Some of the promising approaches to reduce these peaks, such as energy efficiency and demand-side management (DSM) programmes, currently lack the sophistication to target households with particular characteristics or that make the most contribution to peaks. We present an analytical approach time-segmented regression analysis (TSRA) that is able to determine the household factors that dominate at different time-slots across the day and therefore, categorize houses by their daily usage profiles and identify houses with high demand during network peaks based on common household characteristics. The method is applied to an example dataset from New Zealand. From a range of possible factors, it identifies the presence or absence of electrical hot water and electric heating appliances as the dominant factors determining daily electricity variation. The initial findings suggest that DSM programmes in New Zealand should ...
HIV response rates for females were considerably higher than for males in all countries. The lower response rates for males mainly reflect more frequent absence of men from the households. In 12 of the 14 countries, the HIV non-response rate because of absence was two to four times greater for males than for females. Non-response rates were higher among urban, more-educated and wealthier respondents. These patterns of non-response are typical of most household surveys in developing countries. However, there were no clear patterns in non-response rates by various risk and protective factors. Chronically ill adults were equally or more likely to participate in the surveys, suggesting that differential participation of chronically ill adults is unlikely to be a major source of bias.. The non-responder males and females tend to have higher predicted HIV prevalence than those tested. In eight of the 14 countries for males and in seven of the 14 countries for females, non-responders have significantly ...
Downloadable! A 28-sector, 3-factor and 9-household group Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model for India is constructed to analyze the impacts of Tariffs and Non-tariff Barriers (NTBs) on the welfare and poverty of socio-economic household groups. A general cut in tariffs leads to a decrease in overall welfare and reduction in poverty, which urban households are in a relatively better position to address. The choice of a fiscal compensatory mechanism with indirect tax on domestic consumption does not substantially change the pattern of impact except that it increases overall poverty in the economy. On the other hand, quota reductions on agriculture and food products result in a gain in welfare and a bigger reduction of poverty, with rural households doing better than urban households.

Some that could kill instantly some that were slow poison that deteriorated the body gradually.. One major compromise was in the cookware we used. Because of the excessive mining of metals, oxides and ores, people had to find a way to recycle these material that wouldnt biodegrade so one way they started re-purposing them was into kitchenware, cookware and other household items. So just about 200 years ago people in different parts of the world started replacing pure, unglazed clay cooking pots with ones made from metals and other mixed raw materials and have since grossly compromised ...

Research has shown that, in Hawaii, we import a high percentage of our food (75-85%?) and that our population would be in trouble within 3 days - 2 weeks after a major disaster
In most cases, swallowing cosmetics is unlikely to cause any serious health effects. Ingesting other household products is potentially more harmful.
Our results show that over the last 120 years floor space and housing stock in the U.S. increased approximately tenfold, while population increased approximately fivefold and household size decreased by a dramatic 50%. Average floor space has remained approximately constant. But can these long-term trends be expected to continue into the future? The interplay between the evolution of population, household size, average floor space growth, as well as other factors, such as the construction rate of single-family homes and the retirement of older smaller vintages, could become significant in future dynamics.. In order to look ahead, it is important to distinguish between short-and long-term trends. The 2008 housing crisis is a recent event from which the housing market is still recovering, so trends in the last decade may not be representative of future developments. Taking the last 30 years into account, however, allows for a better insight into the near future. It is particularly instructive to ...
The economists discovered that wealthy hand-to-mouth households maintain at least $50,000 in illiquid assets, including homes, vehicles and retirement accounts, but the problem is that theyre inaccessible. Essentially, wealth households account for roughly two-thirds of the entire hand-to-mouth households in the country, a number that immensely outweighs the poorest.. "The wealthy hand-to-mouth are households who hold little or no liquid wealth (cash, checking and savings accounts), despite owning sizable amounts of illiquid assets," the study said. The high costs of college and other bills that stretch a familys paycheck thin are some of the causes of being stuck in a paycheck to paycheck situation.. According to the data, these wealthy "poor" households are older, better educated, more likely to be married and earn a higher income than their poorer counterparts.. Wealthy hand-to-mouth households usually dont last long. It is estimated that this occurs for 2.5 years and then either they ...

In addition to the employees spouse, child or parent, a dependant of the employee can be a person who lives in the same household as the employee (other than as his/her employee, tenant, lodger or boarder) or can be any person who reasonably relies on the employee to make such arrangements on his/her behalf.. Approval for a period of absence due to an illness or for an unexpected domestic crisis or emergency will only be given where the situation requires the employee to be absent from work. Birkbeck is entitled to request information to show that the employee is not taking on an unreasonable burden of care in comparison to other family members. Any cases of serious and/or terminal illness will be dealt with under bereavement and compassionate leave, on an individual basis, and with the utmost sympathy.. The employee concerned must notify his/her manager of the situation at the earliest opportunity and inform them of the reason for the absence as soon as is reasonably practicable. Where ...
... , also known as pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial infection of the lungs and airways. people of all ages can contract the disease, but it is most severe in infants under the age of 5 years who have not been vaccinated. Babies are especially at high risk of developing long term brain damage from whooping cough, because they are often unable to breathe properly during the coughing spasms. Whooping cough, although only rarely fatal, can often cause serious disability.. The highly contagious whooping cough is spread by direct contact or by inhaling infected particles of the pertussis bacteria. Sneezing and coughing release vast quantities of these infectious droplets. There is a very high risk of catching whooping cough from someone in the same household if they have not been vaccinated recently. The incubation time is usually just over a week or more, so symptoms can be delayed.. The early diagnosis of whooping cough is difficult as it may present symptoms similar to ...
The study I cite that is a good example of this is the Denmark Study which concluded that alcoholism is hereditary. The study showed that 14% of children of alcoholics became alcoholics. Lets look at this, if 14% did become alcoholice, then 86% did not. I would conclude that this study shows that alcoholism is not hereditary, as 86% is a much larger number than 14%. I do think there may be a learned behavior involed in the children that do become alcoholics. But, this I think is due to being in the same household and thus a learned behavior in some people ...
Ruth, Just read your post about this, I also know that Michael has posted about this too. We have three females in our family, me(4?), Eves older sister (18.5), and Eve (12.5). We all have period, but none of us have them in the same week. I cant even remember us ever having them at the same time. What makes some females in the same household have period at the same time and some not? Just to keep on the subject of diabetes, Eve went skiing (in western WI) in the rain today (class field trip) and took her pump off before she went skiing. She was off the pump for about 1 hour and check her bgs and she was 91. Isnt the pump great?

Pertussis is very contagious. People who are unimmunized and or living in the same household as an infected individual are at highest risk for infection. Symptoms can vary among the various age groups-from coughing associated with a whooping sound to vomiting after a coughing spell.
I remember how stressed I was about getting to Grand Slam number eighteen, tying Chrissie and Martina," she says. "I had lost every Grand Slam that year. I was in the U.S. Open, and Patrick [Mouratoglou], my coach, said, Serena, this doesnt make sense. Youre so stressed about eighteen. Why not 30? Why not 40? For me, that clicked. I won eighteen, nineteen, and 20 right after that. Why would I want to stand side by side when I can stand out on my own? I think sometimes women limit themselves. Im not sure why we think that way, but I know that were sometimes taught to not dream as big as men, not to believe we can be a president or a CEO, when in the same household, a male child is told he can be anything he wants. Im so glad I had a daughter. I want to teach her that there are no limits." ...
This release is based on data from the 2011 Survey of Household Spending (SHS), which gathered detailed information from a sample of close to 18,000 households on spending patterns, dwelling characteristics and household equipment. Data covers all provinces.. Average spending for a specific good or service is calculated for all households, including those with and those without expenditures for the category. Average spending includes sales taxes.. The survey methodology combines a questionnaire with recall periods appropriate to an expenditure item and a diary of daily expenses that the household completes over the two weeks following an interview. The diary provides more detailed information, particularly for spending on food and other frequent purchases.. The method of adjusting for incomplete diaries has been refined with the 2011 SHS. As well, the age of household members is now defined to be at the time of the interview rather than as of December 31 of the survey year.. To ensure ...
Date: Wed, 16 Dec 1998 14:55:43 +0000 From: Jim Liddil ,jliddil at azcc.arizona.edu, Subject: aha, flow models, CO To the guy with the CO problem. Ive never looked at household CO meters and what the level of accuracy and precision of them is. Maybe you can get a furnace guy or your gas utility to come out and test the CO levels. But because of the higher binding constant of CO to hemoglobin over oxygen, Id ventilate as much as possible. WRT the flow model that John Palmer is working on, something came to mind. In looking at the pictures one notices that the dye is not being eluted 100 % by the solvent. This indicates to me that there is a binding interaction between the dye and the column packing material. So my question would be how does this effect the column chromatography as opposed to the grain column that one is eluting sugar from? After all it seems you guys are applying some sophisticated models and I cant believe that interactions between the bed packing and eluted material are not ...
Once the data collection ends, typically four weeks from the start, the mail and Web data are combined and weighted. The monthly panel weighting protocol uses the original base weights from the recruitment telephone survey, which account for each panelists probability of selection. The base weight uses a single frame estimation to adjust for the probability that the respondents phone number was selected from the sampling frame, the overlap in the landline and cellphone frames, and the within-household selection in the landline sample. For a subset of the panelists, an additional adjustment is included in the base weight to account for the fact that they belong to a group that was subsampled for invitation to the panel.. The next step in the weighting process is a propensity adjustment for nonresponse to the panel invitation, which in later waves was updated to account for other forms of attrition. Of 9,809 telephone respondents who were invited to join the panel, 5,338 (54.4%) accepted. A ...

The proportion of single households in Germany is 37.2%; thus 17.1% if the population live alone. Among those 13.4 million people, just 17.6% are less than 30 years old. 42.0% of them live in cities with 100,000 or more inhabitants. Based on the results of the 2011 Census, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that single households are the most frequent household type in Germany.
We constructed each variable of interest at the household level. Since some of the surveys asked different variants of some of the questions, we tried to define each variable in the most comparable way possible across countries. We normalized all household expenditure variables to a daily per capita level. Using the PPP conversion methodology discussed in the foreword, we converted the local currency units into 2005 world rupees. We then applied the daily poverty line cutoffs to each households total per capita expenditures to classify households into the relevant expenditure categories. All of the tables display variable means across households within each expenditure group weighted according to the household weights provided in most surveys.. ...
