Exploring The Intersection Of Education And Indigenous Status From A Social Determinants Of Health Perspective: Parent And Family Engagement In Secondary School In Nunavik, Nicole Ives, Vandna Sinha 2016 McGill University

Exploring The Intersection Of Education And Indigenous Status From A Social Determinants Of Health Perspective: Parent And Family Engagement In Secondary School In Nunavik, Nicole Ives, Vandna Sinha

The International Indigenous Policy Journal

In Canada, Indigenous Peoples’ health and wellbeing is linked with the legacies of colonization. A social determinants of health model shifts focus from individual-level health contexts to broader socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental conditions associated with population health outcomes. Education is a key social determinant of health, closely tied to both positive health outcomes and socioeconomic status. In communities across Canada, educational success remains out of reach for disproportionately large numbers of Indigenous youth and adults. This qualitative study examined the intersection of two social determinants of health—Indigenous status and education—by exploring educational engagement in secondary school for Inuit ...


Household Production And The Demand For Food And Other Inputs: U.S. Evidence, Wallace E. Huffman 2016 Iowa State University

Household Production And The Demand For Food And Other Inputs: U.S. Evidence, Wallace E. Huffman

Wallace Huffman

The paper develops a new productive household model and a consistent household fullincome/ expenditure demand system for inputs and leisure of U.S. households. The demand system is fitted to U.S. annual aggregate data over the last half of the 20th century and findings include that the price and income elasticity of demand for food-at-home are roughly two times larger than for food-away-from-home and that food-at-home and away-from-home are substitutes. The price and income elasticity of demand for men’s unpaid housework are twice as large as for women’s unpaid housework and women’s and men’s unpaid ...

Who Do Consumers Trust For Information: The Case Of Genetically Modified Foods?, Wallace Huffman, Matthew Rousu, Jason Shogren, Abebayehu Tegene 2016 Iowa State University

Who Do Consumers Trust For Information: The Case Of Genetically Modified Foods?, Wallace Huffman, Matthew Rousu, Jason Shogren, Abebayehu Tegene

Wallace Huffman

To be effective, groups that disseminate information need trust. When different groups provide conflicting information on a new product or process like genetically modified (GM) foods, we hypothesize that consumers place different levels of trust in the sources and trust is related to their income, personal and social capital, and prior beliefs. A random sample of adults was asked to state their preferences for sources they would trust to provide verifiable (i.e., objective) information on genetic modification. Their responses were grouped into six categories, and a multinominal logit model used to explain relative trust in information sources. Relative trust ...


Understanding Post-War Changes In U.S. Household Production: A Full-Income Demand-System Perspective, Wallace Huffman 2016 Iowa State University

Understanding Post-War Changes In U.S. Household Production: A Full-Income Demand-System Perspective, Wallace Huffman

Wallace Huffman

This paper examines the changing structure of U.S. household production over the post-World War II period. We apply production theory in order to define a new set of inputs for U.S. households and use newly constructed data so as to examine with the aid of a relatively simple complete household aggregate demand system. The goal is to extent our understanding of the changing structure of the U.S. household sector over the post-World War II period, including the demand for inputs of women’s and men’s housework or unpaid household labor and seven other aggregate input categories ...


The Captivity Of Opportunity: The Conversation Surrounding Church-Going Hispanic Immigrants, Nicolet Hopper Bell 2016 University of Southern Mississippi

The Captivity Of Opportunity: The Conversation Surrounding Church-Going Hispanic Immigrants, Nicolet Hopper Bell

Master's Theses

Immigration is a long-standing topic of discussion in the United States. Hispanic immigrants, or families of Hispanic immigrants, living in America face unique challenges. Through focus group interviews, participants from a predominantly Hispanic Protestant church narrated their experience of living in the United States. Guided grounded theory data analysis revealed three categories and 14 subcategories, or themes of conversation, surrounding this hot topic. Participants shed light on the distinctive challenges they faced, how these challenges affected them, and how they attempted to overcome these difficulties. By exploring these results through the lens of social stigma theory (Goffman, 2009) and intergroup ...

Integrating Evaluative Thinking Into Organisational Practice: A Case Study Of Lutino Adunu In Uganda, Shilla Adyero

Capstone Collection

Northern Uganda is still recovering from over two decades of civil war between the Government of Uganda and the Lord Resistance Army (LRA). The conflict created over 1.8 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who sought refuge in camps for 23 years. Around 80% of the affected population are mainly women and children. The displacement in the region caused large-scale loss of social and economic infrastructure, together with the productive resources. This contributed to the erosion of the social and financial capital of the affected areas population, forcing the population to depend on non-sustainable aid and relief services provided by ...


The Benefits And Costs Of Alternative Strategies To Improve Educational Outcomes, Peter F. Orazem, Paul Glewwe, Harry Patrinos 2016 Iowa State University

The Benefits And Costs Of Alternative Strategies To Improve Educational Outcomes, Peter F. Orazem, Paul Glewwe, Harry Patrinos

Peter Orazem

Few empirical relationships have been investigated more frequently than that between years of schooling and earnings. Hundreds of studies using a wide variety of datasets from developed countries, spanning many decades, and employing alternative specifications to correct for various potential sources of bias, have consistently found positive private returns per year of schooling.• Returns arc frequent ly equal to or above long-run average market returns to other investments.


Can Private School Subsidies Increase Enrollment For The Poor? The Quetta Urban Fellowship Program, Jooseop Kim, Harold Alderman, Peter F. Orazem 2016 Korea Institute for Vocational Education and Training

Can Private School Subsidies Increase Enrollment For The Poor? The Quetta Urban Fellowship Program, Jooseop Kim, Harold Alderman, Peter F. Orazem

Peter Orazem

This study evaluates a program designed to stimulate girls' schooling through the creation of private girls' schools in poor urban neighborhoods of Quetta, Pakistan. Enrollment growth in these randomly selected neighborhoods is compared to enrollment growth in otherwise similar neighborhoods that were randomly assigned to a control group. The analysis indicates that the program increased girls' enrollment around 33 percentage points. Boys' enrollment rose as well, partly because boys were allowed to attend the new schools and partly because parents would not send their girls to school without also educating their boys. This outcome suggests that programs targeted at girls ...


Location And The Low-Income Experience: Analyses Of Program Dynamics In The Iowa Family Investment Program, Helen H. Jensen, Shao-Hsun Keng, Steven Garasky 2016 Iowa State University

Location And The Low-Income Experience: Analyses Of Program Dynamics In The Iowa Family Investment Program, Helen H. Jensen, Shao-Hsun Keng, Steven Garasky

Helen Jensen

In 1993, the state of Iowa, through waivers, implemented reforms creating the Family Investment Program (FIP), a program similar to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) created under the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA). The goals of FIP (helping program recipients leave poverty and become self-supporting) parallel the intent of TANF and PRWORA (Holcomb et al. 1998; Iowa Department of Human Services 1996). FIP merged and coordinated several existing programs and tied support for job training, education, child care, and transportation more directly to income transfers. Iowa has had to change FIP very little to meet ...


Factors Affecting Food Away From Home: Are Food-Secure And Food-Insecure Households Different?, Suwen Pan, Helen H. Jensen, Jaime Malaga 2016 Texas Tech University

Factors Affecting Food Away From Home: Are Food-Secure And Food-Insecure Households Different?, Suwen Pan, Helen H. Jensen, Jaime Malaga

Helen Jensen

Expenditures on food away from home by food-secure and food-insecure households are compared. The analysis, based on data from the Current Population Survey (CPS), finds that female labor force participation, household income, Food Stamp Program (FSP) participation, education, and other socio-demographic variables have different effects on the food expenditures made by households classified as food-secure in comparison to food-insecure households.

Soup Consumption Is Associated With A Reduced Risk Of Overweight And Obesity But Not Metabolic Syndrome In Us Adults: Nhanes 2003-2006, Yong Zhu, James H. Hollis 2016 University of Iowa

Soup Consumption Is Associated With A Reduced Risk Of Overweight And Obesity But Not Metabolic Syndrome In Us Adults: Nhanes 2003-2006, Yong Zhu, James H. Hollis

James Hollis

A limited number of studies have found that soup consumption is related to a lower risk of overweight and obesity in Asian and European populations, however, these studies do not provide a consistent picture regarding the association between soup consumption and markers of metabolic syndrome. To date, no study examining the relationship between soup and body weight or metabolic syndrome have been conducted in the US population. The present study used a sample of 4158 adults aged 19–64 who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2003 and 2006. The frequency of soup consumption was determined ...
