A value-added based measure of health system output and estimating the efficiency of OECD health systems by Dennis Petrie( file )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"Life expectancy at birth is the most commonly used measure for health system output. However, there are a number of reasons why it may be a poor proxy. First, life expectancy assumes a stationary population and thus does not take into account the current demographic structure of a country; and second, the output of a health system should be measured in terms of the value-added to the population's health status rather than health status itself. The paper develops a new measure of health system output, the Incremental Life Years to address these problems. The new measure is applied to study health system output, efficiency and total factor productivity in OECD countries for the years 2000 and 2004. The new measure provides different results compared to those based on the traditional life expectancy measure, and the differences are further accentuated when changes in efficiency and productivity are estimated"--Abstract
Why does the US dominate university league tables? by Mei Li( file )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
According to Academic Ranking of World Universities, the world's top 500 universities are owned by only 38 countries, with the US alone having 157 of them. This paper investigates the socioeconomic determinants of the wide performance gap between countries and whether the US's dominance in the league table is largely due to its economic power or something else. It is found that a large amount of cross country variation in university performance can be explained by just four socioeconomic factors: income, population size, R & D spending, and the national language. It is also found that conditional on the resources that it has, the US is actually underperforming by about 4 to 10 percent. [Author abstract]
Unplanned pregnancy and the impact on sibling health outcomes by Grace Lordan( file )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This work considers the impact that a new sibling has on a child's health status. Objective health outcomes are observed before a new addition(s) to the family, with the same outcomes being observed afterwards. In addition, this work examines whether planning matters with respect to this dilution effect. That is, we argue that dilution effects should be higher in the event that an additional sibling is unplanned. To our knowledge this is unexplored in the literature with respect to all areas of parental resource allocation. The data used relates to a sample of approximately 2000 children from Peru. These children's parents have been surveyed at 1 year and again at 5 years. To test our hypothesis we exploit data from both waves of the survey. For health outcomes the impact on height for age z scores and weight for age z scores are considered. The results highlight significant independent effects on both height and weight for age when an unplanned sibling is added to the household. In addition, the results show that it is the most vulnerable children that are impacted the most by an unplanned sibling. A subsequent analysis highlights that it is the lowest socio- economic households that are the most likely to have an unplanned sibling
Explaining diversity in students' views and expectations about teaching and learning process in higher education by Mohammad Alauddin( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This paper provides a quantitative analysis of student perceptions in regard to their views and expectations about the purpose of university study. Over 800 survey responses from students attending a leading Australian university forms the empirical basis. Factor analysis was used to explore themes (or dimensions) based on data collected via a paper-and-pencil survey. Multivariate analysis of variance was then undertaken using students factor scores as dependent variables, and age, sex, ethnicity, study discipline, study level, and academic performance as grouping variables. Four factors (Approach to Teaching, Active Participation, Communication and Feedback, and Clarity of Focus and Purpose) reflected students views and expectations about the university teaching and learning process. These labels typified behaviour that reflected students keen interest in the lecturers teaching approach, active participation in the teaching and learning process, and the lecturers responsiveness to students needs. In turn, students perceived views about and expectations were affected by their sex, ethnicity, study discipline, level of study, sex-ethnicity interaction. - [p. 1]
How can we improve waiting times for elective surgery in Australian public hospitals by Merehau Cindy Mervin( file )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"This paper presents preliminary results from a study on waiting time for elective care in Australian public hospitals. It uses available data published in Australia to test the hypotheses that public beds and hospital staffing (specialist surgeons and enrolled nurses) influence waiting time for elective surgery in Australian public hospitals. We extracted data from the National Elective Surgery Waiting Times Data Collection (NESWTDC) and analyse waiting times for 8 specialty surgeries in Australian public hospitals. Hospital beds, nurses and specialist surgeons are used as proxies for the endogeneity of waiting times in a multiple regression analysis"--Abstract
Diversity in students' study practices in higher education by Mohammad Alauddin( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
A plethora of studies document the profound contextual changes leading amongst other things to diversity of the student population in the higher education sector in the developed world in the last two decades. However, the existing literature is less clear about (a) patterns of students study practices, and (b) how the factors underpinning diversity of the student population shape their study practices. This paper seeks to fill this gap. Employing a large data set of survey responses from a leading Australian university, this paper provides a quantitative analysis of students perceptions about their study practices in the teaching and learning process. Analysis of the survey data entailed two stages. First, factor analysis explored themes (or dimensions) within the survey. Multivariate analysis of variance was then undertaken using students factor scores as dependent variables, with their age, sex, ethnicity, study discipline, study level, and academic performance as grouping variables. Four factors, (Concordance and Engagement; Disconnection and Disengagement; Reflection and Realisation; and Learning Impediments) reflected students' study practices. The core difference between students in their study practices was influenced by age, ethnicity, academic performance, and sex-ethnicity interaction. [Author ed]
Are early educational choices affected by unemployment benefits? : new theory by Paul Frijters( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
In this paper we contribute to the recent literature that has investigated the potential economic advantages of unemployment benefits, by developing a model where young individuals in education have to irreversibly choose a degree of specialisation positively related to future unemployment risk, market wages for different types of specialisation have to compensate risk-averse individuals for these risks. Unemployment benefits affect the incentives for specialisation and thereby the long-run composition of the workforce, the wage structure, and output. I address this issue in OLG search models with risk-aversion, talent heterogeneity, endogenous specialisation distributions, and competitive wage formation. The main results are that 1) higher unemployment benefits are related to higher mean specialisation and at low levels raise effciency and welfare; 2) even though wages compensate for risks, unemployment risk and individual wages are generically negatively related when there is talent heterogeneity; 3) the composition of the workforce changes slowly with changing incentives, leading to long lags between welfare system changes and average outcomes (unemployment and output) and lead to longer lasting effects of shocks in regions with higher unemployment benefits
