Allocating public and private resources across generations : riding the waves-volume 2 by Anne Hélène Gauthier( )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In rapidly industrializing countries, demographic changes continue to have significant effects on the well-being of individuals and families, and as aggregate human and financial capital. These effects may be analyzed in terms of inter-generational transfers of time, money, goods, and services. The chapters in this volume greatly develop our understanding of the nature and measurement of transfers, their motives and mechanisms, and their macro-level dimensions, especially in the context of demographic transitions. The chapters include original empirical analyses of datasets from some twenty countries taking the reader beyond the American context in order to test the applicability of some of the theories developed on the basis of American data. They extend the traditional analysis of inter-generational transfers by examining different types of transfers, namely goods, money, assets, time, co-residence and visits. Furthermore, the chapters go beyond the study of traditional parent - child transfers to examine transfers to kins and the bi-directionality of transfers

Network epidemiology : a handbook for survey design and data collection by Martina Morris( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together eight pioneering studies that have sought to map the networks that spread infection around the world. Each chapter reviews the questions that drove the study, the changes in methodology that were needed to implement a network survey, the mistakes and successes encountered, and the key findings made possible by the network design. An introductory chapter provides an overview of network survey design, a glossary provides a summary of network terminology, and example questionnaires from each study provide a template for further research." "This is a unique and valuable resource for the international public health research community and others interested in empirical studies of networks."--Jacket

Mortality and society in Sub-Saharan Africa by Etienne Van de Walle( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the respective roles played by custom, socioeconomic variables, and access to health services in providing the social context of mortality. It uses a variety of data sets and statistical approaches to study the mechanisms of mortality through an examination of the aetiology of the principal diseases which affect children in Africa. It raises fundamental questions about the relation between socioeconomic development, public health policies and the course of mortality, at a time when a concern about crises (drought, famine, AIDS, and economic problems) has been dominant, and examines the possible impact of the change in social arrangements which Africa is undergoing, particularly in the area of family relationships and childrearing, and the adaptation of social systems. A major theme is a plea for better data to evaluate health policies. The book will be of interest to social scientists and planners as well as to demographers
