Health care providers are urged to conduct a complete risk assessment and administer rabies post-exposure prophylaxis, if warranted, utilizing ACIP guidelines.. There has been some recent confusion expressed by providers related to the incidence of rabies in domestic animals in Monterey County. Rabies is enzootic in Monterey County, particularly among skunks and bats. While the canine variant of rabies is not found in California, all domestic animals in Monterey County including dogs and cats are at risk of infection with skunk and bat variants of rabies. Over the last few years there has been an increase in rabies among domestic animals in Monterey County. On July 2, 2015, a cat owned by an individual who resides within the City of Monterey tested positive for a bat variant of rabies. In 2012, a dog from the North Monterey County area was infected with a skunk variant of rabies. The dog had received at least one dose of rabies vaccine. At this time, the Health Department recommends health care ...
An Iowa corn grower says the growth of the ethanol and biodiesel industries have created a rare economic opportunity for western Iowa. Odebolt farmer Jim Meyer says rural Iowa hasnt seen an investment opportunity like this in more than four decades.. Meyer says he thinks rural Iowas having a once-in-a-generation economic opportunity, because of the fast growth in production of renewable energy fuels, both ethanol and biodeisel. He compared it to investment opportunities in Iowa Beef back when the big packer was building regional slaughterhouse operations in western Iowa. Meyer testified Monday at a farm bill field hearing held by a U.S. House Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock and Horticulture. Meyer told lawmakers that the energy title in the farm bill needs to be strengthened and that research on renewable fuels should remain as a top priority.. Meyer says theres also a federal energy bill, and a rural-development office within the U-S-D-A, but says the energy title in the farm bill ...
This study examines the relationship between economic opportunity and adolescent and young adult mortality in the United States. In addition, this study explores other variables, such as social support and rurality, and their link to young adult mortality rates. First, we examined the link between economic opportunity and all-cause mortality rates for youth ages 15 to 34 in the United States. Given the increasing racial and ethnic diversity of Americas youth, we pay particular attention to race/ethnic differences. We also examine the differences in mortality by gender.

By unanimous vote, the Monterey County Board of Supervisors finally agreed to fund a healthcare pilot project for undocumented residents, put forth by leaders of Communities Organized for (relational) Power in Action (COPA). $500 thousand has been allocated to pay for lab tests, radiology and pharmacy services -- things generally unaffordable for residents concentrated in the agriculture or hospitality industry. The purpose is to prevent future visits to the county hospitals emergency room. The Episcopal Diocese estimates that between 1,200 and 2,000 uninsured undocumented county residents will be eligible for the program. According to Canon Jesus Reyes: ...
The Monterey County Health Department received a grant under Proposition 64 legalizing cannabis in California for use by adults 21 or older. The training focuses on educating the Environmental Health Bureau on the adverse effects of cannabis use during gestation and lactation. The research found an excess of women consume cannabis during gestation and lactation. A 2016 study showed that 8.5% of pregnant women between 18-25 used cannabis (Ryan, Ammerman, & OConnor, 2018). The Environmental Health Bureau is involved in inspections and has established relationships with local dispensaries to share infographics and knowledge on the issue. The survey conducted to assess the success of the training received valuable feedback from Environmental Health and County staff. The training was deemed successful by 100% of the participants. It is recommended in the future to incorporate the training manual directly in dispensaries for employees to have at their disposal and as a reference.
It is always important to note that the figures provided here are gross values and do not represent or reflect net profit or loss experienced by individual growers or by the industry as a whole, Lauritzen clarified. The numbers are big and only tell part of the story. Its really about diversity and the ability to withstand changes, whether it is commodity change or Mother Nature, said Lauritzen. Growers do not have control over increased input costs such as fuel, fertilizers and packaging, or drought and labor shortage conditions, Lauritzen explained, nor can they significantly affect market prices. The fact that the gross value of agriculture increased reflects positively on the diversity and strength of our agriculture industry and its ability to respond to the many challenges, he noted.. The mainstays in Monterey County are the cool season vegetables, said Lauritzen. County growers are able modify planting programs even within the same year depending on market strengths or changes ...

MONDAY, Dec. 30, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Its a connection that health officials might miss, but an alarming new study shows that when factories close, deaths from opioid overdoses soar.. Theres this sense of increasing despair among people -- especially people who are working-class who have seen in the last several decades a lot of their economic opportunities wither away, said lead researcher Dr. Atheendar Venkataramani. The findings target fading economic opportunity as a key force driving opioid addiction and deaths in the United States. The shuttering of auto assembly plants is a vivid case in point. Venkataramanis team looked at opioid-related deaths in 112 counties near major auto plants, mostly in the South and Midwest. Of those counties, 29 had a plant close between 1999 and 2016. Within five years of a shutdown, opioid overdose deaths in those counties were 85% higher compared to counties where plants stayed open, the study found, though the results do not prove cause and ...

It is also the case that economic opportunities in high-skill labor markets are among the key determinants of the career decisions made by the native-born student population. The increase in the number of foreign doctorates has clearly reduced economic opportunities in some fields relative to others, and may be an important factor driving native students to enter particular occupations and avoid others. For example, the wage that could be earned by native postdoctoral workers employed in research biology labs is much lower than it would have been in the absence of the immigrant influx, perhaps motivating bright U.S.-born undergraduates to pursue professional occupations that have not been targeted by immigration. The low wage paid to postdoctoral workers in these biology labs, however, still offers a very attractive opportunity when contrasted to the compensation available in other countries, so that the incentives for even more foreign students to enter the United States are not greatly ...

The dynamics of income, earnings, and poverty of the foreign-born population in the United States have broad implications for both immigration flows and stock characteristics. Increased economic opportunity has always been one of the strongest motivating forces behind international migration and changes in economic opportunities might influence immigration. Differences between the economic well being of the native and foreign-born populations can suggest the degree to which immigrant groups are integrated within the U.S. economy and society, and economic downturns may differentially impact the foreign-born population. This research focuses on changes in the income, earnings, and poverty status of the foreign-born population in the United States from 2006 to 2009. Using data from the 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 American Community Surveys (ACS), we analyze the changes in median household income, median earnings, and poverty status by nativity, world region of birth, and selected countries of ...
Its almost like doing a reverse paint by numbers, says Storie. But in the case of satellite imagery, all your green space becomes a category, and all your urban space becomes a category. In many ways, geography and machine learning are a natural fit. Geographers looking to keep tabs on land use changes can tap into a huge database of Landsat satellite images of the earth that have been compiled by the United States Geological Survey since 1972. And massive amounts of data, of course, are what is needed to train an algorithm to sort and classify images.. That is the story of state-of-the-art, machine-learning algorithms, says Henry. If you have enough data, and you have enough computing power, you can build an algorithm that will eventually become very good at recognizing and classifying the patterns in the examples. Henry, Storie and a team of about 10 U of W students (including computer coders and image analysts) spent about six months developing their first algorithm for sorting and ...
Increased compliance with oversize/overweight regulations will help meet TxDMVs goals to reduce congestion, enhance safety, expand economic opportunity, improve air quality, and increase the value of our transportation assets by producing incentives for shippers and carriers to comply with size and weight laws and, when required, to obtain oversize/overweight permits. Permitted loads are routed to help control their traffic flow on Texas roadways, avoid high-traffic areas during peak periods, and ensure that loads do not hinder traffic or create safety hazards by damaging bridges and roadways. Additionally, ensuring compliance with rules and regulations helps create a more level playing field and expands economic opportunities for carriers operating in Texas.. As Texas continues to grow, more demands are placed upon its transportation system. Implementation of this enforcement program is a proactive step toward protecting the states roadways from damage by illegal oversize/overweight loads. ...

China said on Tuesday the number of people living in cities outnumbered those living in the countryside for the first time, as more and more people leave rural areas to seek better economic opportunities. -- PHOTO: AFP BEIJING (AFP) - China said on Tuesday the number of people living in cities outnumbered those living in the countryside for the first time, as more and more people leave rural areas to seek better economic opportunities. Urban dwellers now represent 51.27 per cent of Chinas entire population of nearly 1.35 billion - or 690.8 million people - the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said. China has for centuries been a mainly agrarian nation, but economic reforms undertaken more than three decades ago have triggered breakneck growth and a huge population shift to cities and coastal areas. The NBS said 21 million people moved to cities in 2011 - almost as much... Full article: http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/Asia/Story/STISt... ...

Generation Opportunity President Paul T. Conway, former Chief of Staff of the United States Department of Labor, where the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is housed, and the former Chief of Staff of the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) responds to the May 2012 jobs numbers:. The young adult unemployment rate, now at 12.1 percent for those 18-29 years old, represents yet another chapter in the indefensible saga of how a great generation is being denied economic opportunity, jobs, critical skills, and the ability to pursue their dreams.. As summer begins, the ranks of all those frustrated by the lack of opportunities are joined by recent high school and college graduates whose enthusiasm to join the work force has been slammed by the same harsh economic status quo their brothers and sisters have been experiencing for the past few years - one marked by record high unemployment, a patchwork of part-time jobs, or jobs outside their chosen profession.. Through no fault of their ...

Commission staff member Kevin Kahn noted the strong community presence at Wednesdays hearing and suggested some of the commissioners were sympathetic to the need for parks and public facilities in the community.. Originally envisioned to include hundreds of homes two decades ago, the project was eventually approved by county supervisors in 2008 as an 80-lot subdivision with 17,000 square feet of commercial space, but only after the county Planning Commission rejected it.. After the project was appealed to the commission by the Friends, Artists and Neighbors of Elkhorn Slough organization and two coastal commissioners, project developer Heritage Western Communities shelved the project for several years before revising and reviving a new proposal that cut the number of homes, eliminated the commercial element and added the land dedication.. ...

Abstract: Many young girls in developing countries experience early pregnancy and lifelong dependence upon family and partners, which may prevent them from reaching their full productive and social potential. In this paper, we consider two potential barriers to female empowerment: lack of reproductive health knowledge and lack of economic opportunities, and report from a randomized control field experiment of an empowerment program involving 3900 adolescent girls in 80 schools in rural Tanzania. One group was randomly offered a training program on reproductive health, a second group was offered a program on entrepreneurship while a third group was offered both training programs. The evidence from two rounds of follow-up surveys shows that both the entrepreneurship program and the combined program have empowered the girls in the economic domain, while the impact of the reproductive health training is more muted. These findings suggest that entrepreneurship training is more important than health ...
14 contact hours) Women represent over half of the global population. While women have a longer life expectancy than men in most every country, they dont necessarily get to enjoy healthier lives. Millions of women suffer from health issues each year throughout the world-health issues that would not affect them if they were men. Women and their health issues have traditionally been neglected both nationally and globally. Poverty, scarce education or economic opportunities, gender bias, gender discrimination, unjust laws, and human rights violations impede advancements in womens health worldwide. The ability to effectively communicate their needs also impacts womens health. When womens health concerns, womens rights, and empowerment are made a priority, the result is immense improvements in the health and well-being of women and their children on a global scale. The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe key health issues facing women, both globally and nationally. This course ...

NAACP Chairman Julian Bond found himself responding to Star Parker and the Kansas City commercial. The Republican ad attacking Social Security as the equivalent of reverse reparations that African-Americans must pay to white people is wrong on the facts and outrageous in its intent said Bond, in a September 13 press release. Social Security is not unfair to blacks. Social Security has helped promote equal economic opportunity and it has benefited all Americans, including African-Americans, for generations. Whether Bond knew it or not, he was actually addressing Bob Johnson, whose views are identical to those expressed in the Kansas City script.. The crusading billionaire The racial Social Security bailout was Johnsons second major White House rescue mission. The Death Tax, as Republican euphemizers dubbed it, ranks with Social Security on the Hard Right hit list. Bush was having trouble. During his first year in office, a bunch of rich white people kept insisting that the nations social ...
This discussion paper is a joint production of the FAO Subregional Office for Southern and East Africa and FAO Land and Water Development Division as a response to the regional drought of 2001 and 2002 in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. The paper attempts to diagnose the root causes of the failure of food production systems that depend upon the control of water in the all-important root zone. The continuing vulnerability of staple food production systems to periodic drought and the volatility of incomes that are derived from agriculture continue to confound the subregion. Food import bills use up hard-won foreign exchange and distribution logistics to food short areas are stretched to the limit. Turning this chronic vulnerability around, it is argued, will require an advance on two fronts. First, by enhancing profitable farm operations through improved farm management and water control. Second, by expanding the economic opportunities for farmers through progressive regulation
Leslie Whitener and Timothy Parker. Amber Waves, May 01, 2007 Rural communities have changed dramatically since 1990 due to increased population from urban areas, shifts in age and ethnic composition, and economic and industrial restructuring. Increasing competition from abroad and sectoral shifts in employment present new challenges and opportunities in the worldwide economy and raise the question-how can rural communities successfully build on their economic base and other assets to retain and attract population and employment. And, when, where, and under what circumstances will rural development strategies be most successful? Rural policy for the future will need to encompass a broad array of issues, and these different rural issues will require different mixes of solutions. Strategies to generate new employment and income opportunities, develop local human resources, and build and expand critical infrastructure hold the most promise for enhancing the economic opportunities and well being of ...
Wed Sep 30 00:00:00 MDT 2009. Economic opportunities come to communities in different ways and during different times of the year. Most towns in southeastern Montana have annual events that occur year after year and bring an infusion of dollars into the community. In Miles City the Bull Sale in February, Bucking Horse Sale in the spring and the county fair in August are income-generating activities that happen each and every year. Hunting season in the spring and the fall brings a consistent economic gain to most towns in southeastern Montana. Many small businesses across eastern Montana understand the importance of the hunters dollar each fall and they depend on that consistent income. Those of us who hunt, fish, camp, watch wildlife, hike and generally enjoy spending our time outdoors realize that its costly to do these things. The dollars recreationists spend are an important source of annual income to our communities in southeastern Montana and add to the strength of the local economy ...

Originally known as Sunrise Golf Village, the City had a population of 4,300 and comprised just 1.75 square miles by 1967. Then, during the 1970s - as Broward County began to push west - the City experienced its first real growth. In 1971, the City, by referendum, changed its name to the City of Sunrise. Through annexation, Sunrise eventually expanded to its current boundaries - encompassing more than 18 square miles, reaching the Everglades and dropping south of I-595/State Road 84. The City is situated approximately six miles west of Fort Lauderdale, and is adjoined by the communities of Weston, Davie, Tamarac, Lauderhill, and Plantation. By October 1984, the City had reached an estimated population of 50,000. In the mid-1980s, growth gave way to challenges, as the City was faced with financial difficulties, limited economic opportunities and a lack of adequate civic amenities. In the early 1990s, Sunrise worked to put its financial house in order, rebuild its infrastructure and establish ...
US AID is an agency of the United States Government (the distinction between and agency and a department is important relative to governance). It was formed in 1961 through executive order (President Kennedy) and is the principal (but not the only) agency for extending assistance to countries recovering from disaster, poverty, or implementing governance reform.. USAID plays a vital role in promoting U.S. national security, foreign policy, and the War on Terrorism. It does so by addressing poverty fueled by lack of economic opportunity, one of the root causes of violence today. As stated in the Presidents National Security Strategy, USAIDs work in development joins diplomacy and defense as one of three key pieces of the nations foreign policy apparatus. USAID promotes peace and stability by fostering economic growth, protecting human health, providing emergency humanitarian assistance, and enhancing democracy in developing countries. These efforts to improve the lives of millions of people ...
CSP approved at EB.A/2019. Revision 01 approved by the CD in July 2020. In April and May of 2018, a series of peaceful demonstrations dubbed the velvet revolution led to a change in political power in Armenia, with the new Government promising wide-ranging reforms. Recent elections have solidified the political transition and demonstrated confidence in the new Government to deliver on promises of reform. Despite macroeconomic progress and structural reforms implemented during the last decade, growth has been weak and unevenly distributed in the country, and a rising state debt has put pressure on the budget, hindering the implementation of national social safety nets and driving many Armenians to emigrate in search of economic opportunities elsewhere. Although the country has made significant progress towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in areas such as maternal and child health, access to safe and reliable water supply, and improved sanitation in urban areas, more ...
In the 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, his dream of an education system providing equal economic opportunity to black children remains unfulfilled, according to a new book published by a Memphis advocacy group.. An Education Dream, edited by Mendell Grinter, the executive director of Campaign for School Equity, includes interviews with Memphis and national education leaders and documents major changes in the citys school system. The book was published in conjunction with the National Civil Rights Museum and its yearlong commemoration of Kings legacy as the 50th anniversary of his death approaches April 4.. The walling off of Negroes from equal education is part of the historical design to submerge him in second-class status, King said in a 1964 speech as he accepted an award from the United Federation of Teachers, the New York City teachers union. Therefore, as Negroes have struggled to be free, they have had to fight for the opportunity for a decent ...

Introduction: Theodore Dreisers Sister Carrie created a sensation when first published and still generates much controversy among scholars and general readers alike. The initial uproar was that, although Dreisers title character did not preserve her virtue, she nonetheless escaped punishment. Instead of ignominy she received renown and wealth in the theatre. The concern over female sexuality and the dangers it entails runs through the history of women in America. In the womans rights movement of the 1840s and 1850s this took the form of a campaign against prostitution which focused upon the lack of economic opportunities for women and the plethora of opportunities for sexual predation open to men in positions of authority. After the Civil War the anti-prostitution campaign focused upon the efforts of physicians and police to regulate prostitution by requiring regular medical examinations. Feminists charged that the legalization of prostitution would legalize the sexual exploitation of women. ...
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Poverty in South Africas rural areas is complex and severe, especially among female-headed households. The marginalisation of South Africas rural areas over a period of decades resulted in an acute lack of economic opportunities, limited infrastructure and a serious breakdown of social capital. Women living in rural areas are particularly poor in moneymetric terms; they are often illiterate and therefore isolated from economic and social opportunities; and many fall victim to violence in the household. They eke out a meagre existence, based on small-scale agriculture, marginal self-employment or limited wage and remittance income. While such income diversification, combined with the governments range of development interventions, helps to buffer them against risks such as illness, death and disaster, rural poverty is not just a matter of income and assets. It is also rooted in other disadvantages, such as exclusion, disempowerment and unequal power relations. These all ...
The Republic of South Africa voted for the adoption of the resolution on the protection of human rights defenders (HRDs) by the United Nations General Assembly on December 18th 2015. Nevertheless, HRDs face threats, intimidation, harassment, and physical attacks, sometimes resulting in death, by private individuals and members of the police force. This is especially true for those human rights defenders working on corporate accountability and the impact of extractive industries on local people and the environment. Moreover, suspected perpetrators often go unpunished. There is overwhelming impunity for those who violate the rights of human rights defenders.. In rural areas, where job opportunities are scarce and economic prospects low, mining and extractive projects are seen as viable economic opportunities. Human rights defenders who raise concerns about loss of indigenous lands and environmental destruction in face of these projects are violently targeted. In September 2007 South Africa signed ...

By sharing research and personal experiences revealing long-standing and current coronavirus health disparities agitated by urban density, Im not taking an anti-density stance. As urbanists, we should critique the things we feel most passionate about to achieve urban equity and design excellence - in that order. In addition to public health, urban density can contribute to land use efficiencies, economic opportunity and strong social networks. Even in forgotten densities, people consistently rise above discriminatory design practices and policies, to nurture the well-being of their communities. The value and necessity of urban density are undeniable. However, achieving good urban density for all is complex. In his paper Sustainable urbanism: towards a framework for quality and optimal density?, Steffen Lehmann, an architect, urban designer and professor at The University of Portsmouth, examines this complexity. Density is one of the key issues in planning that can regularly create all kinds of ...
Cynthia Nelson brings to life a bold and gifted Egyptian of the mid-twentieth century who helped define what it means to be a modern Arab woman. Doria Shafik (1908-1975), an Egyptian feminist, poet, publisher, and political activist, participated in one of her countrys most explosive periods of social and political transformation. During the 40s she burst onto the public stage in Egypt, openly challenging every social, cultural, and legal barrier that she viewed as oppressive to the full equality of women. As the founder of the Daughters of the Nile Union in 1948, she catalyzed a movement that fought for suffrage and set up programs to combat illiteracy, provide economic opportunities for lower-class urban women, and raise the consciousness of middle-class university students. She also founded and edited two prominent womens journals, wrote books in both French and Arabic, lectured throughout the world, married, and raised two children. For a decade, she ignited the imagination of the press, ...

In the rural municipality of Yapacani in Bolivia, a recent project undertaken by an alliance of local aquaculture and agriculture collectives and researchers from Canada, Bolivia and Brazil has resulted in a drastic remarkable expansion of economic opportunities for women, and a boost to the overall economy and health of the region.. Rural residents of Yacapani, many of whom live in poverty, have traditionally relied mainly on single-crop rice farming as a source of income, and the limited number of fish farmers in the area also tended to raise only one type of fish, the pacu species. The Peces Para la Vida (Fish for Life) project, which concluded in 2014, trained farmers in fish polyculture techniques, effective water management and other skills, to improve the overall sustainability and productivity of their aquaculture practices. The project has increased fish production by eight times in the region, and in households that adopted fish farming, incomes grew an average of $15,000 USD from a ...

Maintaining healthy food value chains and having more green spaces in urban and peri-urban areas are essential to making cities more resilient under COVID-19. Urban agriculture is already practiced by more than 800 million people worldwide already. There are various benefits to urban and peri-urban agriculture including the shortening of supply chains, the increase in availability of fresh produce, and promoting more healthy dietary lifestyles and local economic opportunities. Urban and peri-urban agriculture such as rooftop gardens have various environmental benefits including the reduction of energy and water demand, improvement of air quality, capturing of rainwater and reduction of storm water runoff and discharge as well as a lowering of the urban heat island effect. In addition, the increased presence of urban and peri-urban agriculture makes cities more food secure and self-reliant in the event of an unexpected shock. They also have multiple benefits on human health including mental ...
Another Misuse of Nonprofits? Local and State Agencies Transform - NPQ - Nonprofit Quarterly: The trend to create nonprofit organizations to do work that had once been the responsibility of a government agency continues despite questions about effectiveness, transparency, and accountability. Recently, NPQ reported on a situation in San Diego where a development program is being questioned for its ability to spend public dollars on projects with no requirement to get approval or demonstrate that it fits an impact plan. Now, Illinois appears poised to join the ranks, considering creating a nonprofit agency that would replace the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, overseeing economic development in the state ...
If we want girls to succeed, we need to teach them the audacity to transgress. Through the lives of students at three very different schools, an award-winning scholar-activist makes the case for feminist schools that orient girls toward a lifetime of achievement.. This bold and necessary book points out a simple and overlooked truth: most schools never had girls in mind to begin with. That is why the world needs what Sally Nuamah calls feminist schools, deliberately designed to provide girls with achievement-oriented identities. And she shows how these schools would help all students, regardless of their gender.. Educated women raise healthier families, build stronger communities, and generate economic opportunities for themselves and their children. Yet millions of disadvantaged girls never make it to school--and too many others drop out or fail. Upending decades of advice and billions of dollars in aid, Nuamah argues that this happens because so many challenges girls confront--from sexual ...
James M DorseyWelcome to The Turbulent World of Middle East Soccer by James M. Dorsey, a senior fellow at Nanyang Technological Universitys S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies. Soccer in the Middle East and North Africa is played as much on as off the pitch. Stadiums are a symbol of the battle for political freedom; economic opportunity; ethnic, religious and national identity; and gender rights. Alongside the mosque, the stadium was until the Arab revolt erupted in late 2010 the only alternative public space for venting pent-up anger and frustration. It was the training ground in countries like Egypt and Tunisia where militant fans prepared for a day in which their organization and street battle experience would serve them in the showdown with autocratic rulers. Soccer has its own unique thrill - a high-stakes game of cat and mouse between militants and security forces and a struggle for a trophy grander than the FIFA World Cup: the future of a region. This blog explores the role of ...
The International Social Justice Project (ISJP) is a collaborative effort among 13 countries to conduct a comparative study of popular perceptions of economic and social justice in advanced industrialized nations. For this collection, the 1996 and 2000 merged data includes only the country of Germany. The survey, which employed standardized survey procedures and data collection instruments across all countries, focused on normative social justice concepts such as entitlement, equality of economic opportunity, and reward distribution. The study design provides analysis of normative justice at a micro level, involving respondents evaluation of justice or rewards received by individuals and small groups, and at a macro level, through the evaluation of fairness of reward distribution at the aggregate or societal level. Variables in the dataset include demographic characteristics of the respondent, such as age, sex, marital status, education, employment, and occupation. In this survey, occupation ...
