Cognitive Health Among Older Adults: Evidence From Rural Sub-Saharan Africa, Collin F. Payne, Iliana V. Kohler, Chiwoza Bandawe, Kathy A. Lawler, Hans-Peter Kohler 2016 Harvard University

Cognitive Health Among Older Adults: Evidence From Rural Sub-Saharan Africa, Collin F. Payne, Iliana V. Kohler, Chiwoza Bandawe, Kathy A. Lawler, Hans-Peter Kohler

Population Center Working Papers (PSC/PARC)

Cognitive health is an important dimension of well-being in older ages, but few studies have investigated cognitive health in sub-Saharan Africa’s (SSA) growing population of mature adults (= persons age 45+). We use data from the Malawi Longitudinal Study of Families and Health (MLSFH) to document the age and gender patterns of cognitive health, the contextual and life-course correlates of poor cognitive health, and the understudied linkages between cognitive and physical/mental well-being. Surprisingly, the age-pattern of decline in cognitive health for both men and women is similar to that observed in the U.S. We also find that women ...

Maternity And Work: The Impossible Challenge Of Japanese Women, Valérie Harvey 2016 Laval University

Maternity And Work: The Impossible Challenge Of Japanese Women, Valérie Harvey

Journal for Social Thought

Japan’s declining birth rate reached a record low in 2005 with a fertility rate of 1.26 births. This study explores the principal factors behind Japanese women’s waning desire to have children: the obligation of marriage; the impact of higher education on women; a grueling job market making conciliation of career and family extremely difficult. Based on interviews with Japanese women (with and without children), this research verified the influence of marriage, education and the job market on their child-bearing rate. Results indicate that the desire to have children does not seem to be an underlying factor in ...

Hong Kong Happiness Index Survey 2013, Lok Sang HO 2016 Centre for Public Policy Studies, Lingnan University

Hong Kong Happiness Index Survey 2013, Lok Sang Ho

Prof. HO Lok-sang

Results of Lingnan University’s Hong Kong Happiness Index Survey 2013 indicate a slight increase of Hong Kong people’s happiness index to 70.5, up from 70.3 last year on a scale of 0-100. Even though the uptick in the happiness index is insignificant, it is still unexpected in view of the social and political tensions in Hong Kong.

Satisfaction with the quality of public policy has fallen markedly from last year’s 4.77 to 4.14 on a scale of 0 to 10. Also declining noticeably is satisfaction with the living environment from 6.03 to ...


Introduction To Gis Using Open Source Software, 7th Ed, Frank Donnelly 2016 CUNY Bernard M Baruch College

Introduction To Gis Using Open Source Software, 7th Ed, Frank Donnelly

Open Educational Resources

This tutorial was created to accompany the GIS Practicum, a day-long workshop offered by the Newman Library at Baruch College CUNY that introduces participants to geographic information systems (GIS) using the open source software QGIS. The practicum introduces GIS as a concept for envisioning information and as a tool for conducting geographic analyses and creating maps. Participants learn how to navigate a GIS interface, how to prepare layers and conduct a basic geographic analysis, and how to create thematic maps. This tutorial was written using QGIS version 2.14 "Essen", a cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) desktop GIS software package.
