At what price? : conceptualizing and measuring cost-of-living and price indexes by National Research Council Staff( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the foundations for consumer price indexes, comparing the conceptual and practical strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of traditional "fixed basket" and COLI approaches
Beyond the market : designing nonmarket accounts for the United States( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The national income and product accounts that underlie gross domestic product (GDP), together with other key economic data price and employment statistics are widely used as indicators of how well the nation is doing. GDP, however, is focused on the production of goods and services sold in markets and reveals relatively little about important production in the home and other areas outside of markets. A set of satellite accounts in areas such as health, education, volunteer and home production, and environmental improvement or pollution would contribute to a better understanding of major issues related to economic growth and societal well-being. Beyond the Market: Designing Nonmarket Accounts for the United States hopes to encourage social scientists to make further efforts and contributions in the analysis of nonmarket activities and in corresponding data collection and accounting systems. The book illustrates new data sources and new ideas that have improved the prospects for progress

Understanding business dynamics : an integrated data system for America's future( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The U.S. economy is highly dynamic: businesses open and close, workers switch jobs and start new enterprises, and innovative technologies redefine the workplace and enhance productivity. With globalization, markets have also become more interconnected. Measuring business activity in this rapidly evolving environment increasingly requires tracking complex interactions among firms, establishments, employers, and employees. This report presents strategies for improving the accuracy, timeliness, coverage, and integration of data that are used in constructing aggregate economic statistics, as well as in microlevel analyses of topics ranging from job creation and destruction and firm entry and exit to innovation and productivity. This report offers recommendations that could be enacted by federal statistical agencies to modernize the measurement of business dynamics, particularly the production of information on small and young firms that can have a disproportionately large impact in rapidly expanding economic sectors. It also outlines the need for effective coordination of existing survey and administrative data sources, which is essential to improving the depth and coverage of business data."--Jacket
Anzac Battlefield : a Gallipoli landscape of war and memory by Mithat Atabay( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anzac battlefield: A Gallipoli landscape of war' and Memory explores the transformation of Gallipoli's landscape in antiquity, during the famed battles of the First World War and in the present day. Drawing on archival, archaeological and cartographic material, this book unearths the deep history of the Gallipoli peninsula, setting the Gallipoli campaign in a broader cultural and historical context. The book presents the results of an original archaeological survey, the research for which was supported by the Australian, New Zealand and Turkish Governments. The survey examines materials from both sides of the battlefield, and sheds new light on the environment in which Anzac and Turkish soldiers endured the conflict. Richly illustrated with both Ottoman and Anzac archival images and maps, as well as original maps and photographs of the landscape and archaeological findings, Anzac Battlefield is an important contribution to our understanding of Gallipoli and its landscape of war and memory
Intangible assets : measuring and enhancing their contribution to corporate value and economic growth by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intangible assets--which include computer software, research and development (R & D), intellectual property, workforce training, and spending to raise the efficiency and brand identification of firms--comprise a subset of services, which, in turn, accounts for three-quarters of all economic activity. Increasingly, intangibles are a principal driver of the competitiveness of U.S.-based firms, economic growth, and opportunities for U.S. workers. Yet, despite these developments, many intangible assets are not reported by companies, and, in the national economic accounts, they are treated as expenses rather than investments. On June 23, 2008, a workshop was held to examine measurement of intangibles and their role in the U.S. and global economies. The workshop, summarized in the present volume, included discussions of a range of policy-relevant topics, including: what intangibles are and how they work; the variety and scale of emerging markets in intangibles; and what the government s role should be in supporting markets and promoting investment in intangibles"--Publisher's description
Civic engagement and social cohesion : measuring dimensions of social capital to inform policy by Kenneth Prewitt( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Civic Engagement and Social Cohesion identifies measurement approaches that can lead to improved understanding of civic engagement, social cohesion, and social capital - and their potential role in explaining the functioning of society. With the needs of data users in mind, this report examines conceptual frameworks developed in the literature to determine promising measures and measurement methods for informing public policy discourse. The report identifies working definitions of key terms; advises on the feasibility and specifications of indicators relevant to analyses of social, economic, and health domains; and assesses the strength of the evidence regarding the relationship between these indicators and observed trends in crime, employment, and resilience to shocks such as natural disasters. Civic Engagement and Social Cohesion weighs the relative merits of surveys, administrative records, and non-government data sources, and considers the appropriate role of the federal statistical system. This report makes recommendations to improve the measurement of civic health through population surveys conducted by the government and identifies priority areas for research, development, and implementation"--Publisher's description

Strategies for a BEA satellite health care account : summary of a workshop by Christopher D Mackie( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 2008, the Committee on National Statistics of the National Academies held a workshop to assist the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) with next steps as it develops plans to produce a satellite health care account. This account, designed to improve its measurement of economic activity in the medical care sector, will benefit health care policy. The purpose of the workshop, summarized in this volume, was to elicit expert guidance on strategies to implement the objectives of the BEA program. The ultimate objectives of the program are to: compile medical care spending information by type of disease-a system more directly useful for measuring health care inputs, outputs, and productivity than current estimates of spending by type of provider; produce a comprehensive set of accounts for health care-sector income, expenditure, and product; develop medical care price and real output measures that will help analysts to break out changes in the delivery of health care from changes in the prices of that care; and coordinate BEA and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) health expenditure statistics

Nuclear officer retention : MSR and beyond by Michael K Nakada( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To combat low retention in the nuclear officer community, the Nuclear Officer Incentive Pay (NOIP) program was designed. A 1981 study of nuclear submarine officer retention found a significant, positive effect of NOIP on their retention at the end of the minimum service requirement (MSR). In 1996, the study was broadened to include nuclear-trained surface warfare officers. Again, a significant, positive effect of NOIP on the MSR retention rate was found. This report documents the results of an investigation of historical nuclear officer retention behavior at the MSR decision point and 9 decision points later. It specifies an ACOL-2 model and quantifies the impact of the NOIP retention bonus program on 10 retention decisions. Separate models of retention were estimated for the submarine and surface nuclear officer communities. For both communities, the retention elasticities with respect to the NOIP retention bonus program were small, but significant indicating that 'pay does matter.' These models can be used to assess the retention and cost impacts of alternative NOIP retention strategies

Subjective well-being : measuring happiness, suffering, and other dimensions of experience by Panel on Measuring Subjective Well-Being in a Policy-Relevant Framework( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Subjective well-being refers to how people experience and evaluate their lives and specific domains and activities in their lives. This information has already proven valuable to researchers, who have produced insights about the emotional states and experiences of people belonging to different groups, engaged in different activities, at different points in the life course, and involved in different family and community structures. Research has also revealed relationships between people's self-reported, subjectively assessed states and their behavior and decisions. Research on subjective well-being has been ongoing for decades, providing new information about the human condition. During the past decade, interest in the topic among policy makers, national statistical offices, academic researchers, the media, and the public has increased markedly because of its potential for shedding light on the economic, social, and health conditions of populations and for informing policy decisions across these domains. "Subjective Well-Being: Measuring Happiness, Suffering, and Other Dimensions of Experience" explores the use of this measure in population surveys. This report reviews the current state of research and evaluates methods for the measurement. In this report, a range of potential experienced well-being data applications are cited, from cost-benefit studies of health care delivery to commuting and transportation planning, environmental valuation, and outdoor recreation resource monitoring, and even to assessment of end-of-life treatment options. "Subjective Well-Being" finds that, whether used to assess the consequence of people's situations and policies that might affect them or to explore determinants of outcomes, contextual and covariate data are needed alongside the subjective well-being measures. This report offers guidance about adopting subjective well-being measures in official government surveys to inform social and economic policies and considers whether research has advanced to a point which warrants the federal government collecting data that allow aspects of the population's subjective well-being to be tracked and associated with changing conditions
