An Assessment Of The Performances Of Several Univariate Tests Of Normality, James Olusegun Adefisoye 2015 Florida International University

An Assessment Of The Performances Of Several Univariate Tests Of Normality, James Olusegun Adefisoye

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The importance of checking the normality assumption in most statistical procedures especially parametric tests cannot be over emphasized as the validity of the inferences drawn from such procedures usually depend on the validity of this assumption. Numerous methods have been proposed by different authors over the years, some popular and frequently used, others, not so much. This study addresses the performance of eighteen of the available tests for different sample sizes, significance levels, and for a number of symmetric and asymmetric distributions by conducting a Monte-Carlo simulation. The results showed that considerable power is not achieved for symmetric distributions when ...


Price Expectations And Risk Profiles Drive Commodity Program Choices, Alejandro Plastina, Chad Hart 2015 Iowa State University

Price Expectations And Risk Profiles Drive Commodity Program Choices, Alejandro Plastina, Chad Hart

Agricultural Policy Review

The optimal commodity program choice depends as much on the specific production system in each farm as on the producer’s expectations about future yields and prices. Furthermore, the risk profile of producers will weigh heavily in the decision. This article illustrates the role of price expectations and risk profiles in commodity program choice using the ISU Farm Bill Analyzer.


Crop Insurance In Iowa, Alejandro Plastina, Chad Hart 2015 Iowa State University

Crop Insurance In Iowa, Alejandro Plastina, Chad Hart

Agricultural Policy Review

Farmers across the nation rely heavily on crop insurance as a risk management tool—in Iowa alone over 93 percent of corn and soybean planted area was insured in 2014, but that participation rate hasn’t always been the case. Participation in crop insurance declined substantially in the early 1990s after the mandate that required producers to purchase crop insurance in 1989 and 1990 to collect drought assistance in 1988 dissipated.


Rural Implications Of Medicaid Expansion Under The Affordable Care Act., Erika Ziller, Jennifer Lenardson, Andrew Coburn 2015 University of Southern Maine

Rural Implications Of Medicaid Expansion Under The Affordable Care Act., Erika Ziller, Jennifer Lenardson, Andrew Coburn

Medicaid

In this brief, researchers from the Maine Rural Health Research Center (University of Southern Maine, Muskie School of Public Service) present findings from a SHARE-funded evaluation of the rural implications of Medicaid expansion under the ACA.

The authors examine the following issues:

  • The extent to which prior public health insurance expansions have covered rural populations
  • Whether rural residents who are expected to be newly eligible for Medicaid in 2014 differ from their urban counterparts
  • The extent to which rural individuals might differentially benefit from the ACA Medicaid expansion in light of the expansion becoming optional
  • Whether rural enrollees are likely ...


Insuring Feedlot Health—Where Does It All Begin?, W. Mark Hilton 2015 Purdue University

Insuring Feedlot Health—Where Does It All Begin?, W. Mark Hilton

Driftless Region Beef Conference

Cattle that stay healthy in the feedlot produce greater revenue than those that become sick. Data from the Texas Ranch to Rail Program on over 16,000 calves showed healthy cattle returned $67.32 per head while calves treated one or more times returned -$20.28 per head. Let’s start at the beginning and examine factors that affect health in the feedlot.


Index-Based Insurance And Risk Management Among Nomadic Mongolian Herders , Kelsey Larson 2014 SIT Study Abroad

Index-Based Insurance And Risk Management Among Nomadic Mongolian Herders , Kelsey Larson

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Mongolian herders must contend with the risk of dzuds, harsh winters that can kill large numbers of livestock. To do so, they use a mixture of formal financial tools and traditional risk mitigation techniques. This paper is a study of the interaction between the Mongolian Index-based Livestock Insurance Program and traditional informal risk mitigation techniques. The researcher interviews herders in Bulgan soum, Arhangai aimag and Galuut soum, Bayanhongor aimag to compare the IBLI program’s impact in a community that has had IBLI since 2006 and one that only received IBLI in 2012. This study finds that insurance purchase is ...


Is Government Involvement Really Necessary: Implications For Systemic Risk And Crop Reinsurance Contracts, Xiaoguang Feng, Dermot J. Hayes 2014 Iowa State University

Is Government Involvement Really Necessary: Implications For Systemic Risk And Crop Reinsurance Contracts, Xiaoguang Feng, Dermot J. Hayes

Economics Presentations, Posters and Proceedings

Agriculture is subject to substantial systemic risk of crop yield losses due to widespread natural disasters. The systemic risk has been a major obstacle for the development of private crop insurance markets. Driven by spatially correlated weather events, crop losses are highly correlated within a certain area. As a result, the portfolio insurance risk associated with the crop losses has been raised far above what it would be if individual losses were independent, as proposed by Miranda and Glauber (1997). For example, Miranda and Glauber (1997) find that the portfolio risk faced by U.S. crop insurers is about ten ...


Diversifying Systemic Risk In Agriculture: A Copula-Based Approach, Xiaoguang Feng, Dermot J. Hayes 2014 Iowa State University

Diversifying Systemic Risk In Agriculture: A Copula-Based Approach, Xiaoguang Feng, Dermot J. Hayes

Economics Presentations, Posters and Proceedings

One of the biggest obstacles for the development of private crop insurance markets is the systemic risk inherent in crop yields. Driven by spatially correlated weather events, crop losses are highly correlated within a certain area. As a result, the portfolio insurance risk has been raised prohibitively high for viable private crop insurance markets unless subsidized by the government. For example, the portfolio risk faced by U.S. crop insurers is about ten times larger than that of conventional insurance lines (Miranda and Glauber, 1997).


Risky Business: Recommendations For The Insurance Industry To Contribute To Greater Disaster Risk Reduction And Climate Change Adaptation, Jessie G. Rountree 2014 University of San Francisco

Risky Business: Recommendations For The Insurance Industry To Contribute To Greater Disaster Risk Reduction And Climate Change Adaptation, Jessie G. Rountree

Master's Projects

The private insurance industry is susceptible to increasing risk from climate change and can serve as a catalyst to change behavior to minimize loss. The research examined the current impact and future potential of the insurance industry to reduce both physical and financial risk. The insurance industry currently raises awareness, assigns an economic value to risk, advocates for climate change action, and takes measures to reduce physical risk through mitigation. As well, the industry has proven to be a critical influencer to encourage risk-adverse behavior and regulation. Recommendations to the industry to have a greater impact include: 1) pursue more ...

Risk Management For Cattlemen, Tony Latcham 2014 Son Risk Management

Risk Management For Cattlemen, Tony Latcham

Cornbelt Cow-Calf Conference

Livestock insurance was first sold in 2002 and initially ran into problems as that pilot got underway. As the program evolved bugs were worked through and we ended up with two products that provide price protection for livestock producers at a reasonable cost. In this presentation I will review the two types of livestock insurance available and go through examples of when and where they are appropriate to utilize in your marketing scheme.


Navigating The Health Care Labyrinth: Portraits Of The Socioeconomically Disadvantaged, Thomas C. Crawford PhD 2014 Antioch University - PhD Program in Leadership and Change

Navigating The Health Care Labyrinth: Portraits Of The Socioeconomically Disadvantaged, Thomas C. Crawford Phd

Dissertations & Theses

In 2010, an estimated population of the 311,212,863 Americans generated approximately 1,014,688,290 physician office encounters (Moore, 2010). The frequency and number of professional interactions between caregivers and patients/family members in medical office settings equated to a staggering 1,931 visits per minute. Based on the massive volume of interactions that occurred between patients of different races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic standings that generated an average household income of $49,445 in 2010 (United States Census Bureau, 2010a) with a physician workforce that the Association of American Medical Colleges (2010) captured as being ...

Visiting Nurse Services Of Newport And Bristol County: Increasing Program Awareness For The Help At Home Program, Nick Villeneuve, Monique Fedora, Jon Nessa, Kevin Nash, Joel Cooper, Arnold Robinson

Business

We came up with the idea of using a cost analysis to clearly demonstrate the advantage of home care vs. hospitalization. John Hopkins Bay view Medical Center conducted a study within their geriatrics unit to test their Hospital At Home program against typical on-site care at the hospital. The study was held over the course of 30 days involving hundreds of patients across three cities and the results were staggering. Not only was at home care 32% cheaper ($5,081 versus $7,480) but also overall customer satisfaction was significantly higher.
