16 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crime, The Police and Criminal Statistics: An Analysis of Official Statistics for England and Wales Using Econometric Methods presents a study of the relation between official criminal statistics and the activities which they are supposed to reflect.

Consumption, jobs and the environment : a fourth way? by R. A Carr-Hill( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume argues that the present pattern of development, based on everlasting economic growth, is completely unsatisfactory from a welfare point of view. It threatens ecological catastrophe while perpetuating poverty. Roy Carr-Hill and John Lintott propose an alternative policy framework based explicitly on welfare and suggest where cuts in consumption, working hours and ecological risks might be made most usefully
Women's social standing : the empirical problem of female social class by R. A Carr-Hill( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is social class? Do we all have one? Such questions are usually asked about men. If women are considered at all it is usually as an appendage to one of the men in their lives. It would be astonishing if (female) social scientists did not complain. They do. The ensuing debates are fun but of no use to those who need to analyze data. This book instead focuses on the methodological issue of the appropriate form of a social classification. In Part I, the authors describe the genesis of the Registrar-General's occupationally based classification--and in particular its application to women--arguing that it is not obviously appropriate in the current context. In Part II, they set out the technical criteria which ought to be met by any index, and further argue that a social classification should have a specific domain of reference. On this basis, in Part III, they compare the discrimination provided by the occupationally based classifications with that provided by the women's own height with surprising results. The book concludes with an examination of the implications of the argument for those concerned in collecting and analyzing empirical data and for the theoretical debate about social class
Social conditions in sub-Saharan Africa by R. A Carr-Hill( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sub-Saharan Africa is at the centre of the debate about development and about the relationship between prosperity in the North and poverty in the South. However, the data base for much of the argument is very weak. The purpose of this book is to present an up-to-date picture based on a critical evaluation of several hundred studies. Separate chapters consider food, fuel and water, health and education, and then three cross-cutting issues: urbanisation, women and human rights. The uniqueness of the book is not only in the care with which the data is examined but also in the emphasis upon interpreting data within a framework oriented towards the monitoring of the satisfaction of basic human needs

The education of nomadic peoples in East Africa : Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda : review of relevant literature by R. A Carr-Hill( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six per cent of the Africans still lead a nomadic lifestyle. Marginalized by their highly mobile and harsh way of life, nomadic communities pose a particular challenge for education.

It provides a comprehensive insight into the challenges, as well as the constraints and opportunities in developing the right programmes
PISA for development technical strand c : Incorporating out-of-school 15- year-olds in the assessment by R. A Carr-Hill( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of PISA since its first survey administration in 2000 has attracted an ever increasing number of participating countries. With an increasingly diverse group of countries, the targeting of the original assessment may be less appropriate than when it was first conceived for a smaller more uniform group of countries. The purpose of this paper is to identify the technical issues in respect of Strand C (assessing competencies of those out-of-school) and to discuss and present ways of addressing these issues
Adult literacy programs in Uganda by Anthony Okech( )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to compare, and contrast the resource requirements, and effectiveness of adult literacy programs in Uganda, assess its implementation, and recommend future policy for the development of adult literacy education. The report presents the research, and evaluation background, providing analyses of effectiveness in terms of both the attainment, and retention of reading, writing, and arithmetic skills, including practical knowledge, and attitude changes - particularly, knowledge about HIV/AIDS prevention, and care. It explores the factors affecting the performance of adult education, the costs of activities, and the extent of local commitment under the current socioeconomic conditions. The context of literacy programs in Uganda, and the current state of both government, and nongovernmental organizations' programs, are described, emphasizing on outcomes, and cost-effectiveness, rather than process, or methodology. Conclusions suggest that while the programs are helping the government in redressing the imbalance of educational opportunities, namely between men and women, these programs are nonetheless in danger of missing their primary target, i.e., the people who have had no schooling. Furthermore, the average level of attainment is very limited, revealing the quality of implementation is the major explanation for the variations in learners' attainments. Recommendations suggest consistency in policy, to ensure reconciliation between decentralization, and the priority for universal literacy

Non-formal education : information and planning issues by Gabriel Carron( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes what was learned from a series of studies on nonformal education (nfe) conducted in the last half of the 1980s by the International Institute for Educational Planning and draws lessons from these studies for planning and policy making. Source material includes four national case studies in Argentina, Canada, Hungary, and the ussr. The case studies mapped out the different components of the diversified nfe field; analyzed their relative importance; and identified the main determinants of the diversification process and its effects, examining the role of planning in this process. This study focused on nfe in developing countries. Chapters 1-3 of the report summarize what has been learned about nfe, such as forms and dynamics of the diversification process, the different forms of out-of-school education, who is organizing different forms of education, and who benefits. Chapters 4-5 examine the implications for planning in both quantitative and qualitative terms, including the information base and planning for nfe at different levels and in the future. The book includes 20 references, the questionnaire used in Canada, and excerpts from a questionnaire used in the United Kingdom. (Kc)

Measuring skill mix in primary care : dilemmas of delegation and diversification by Susan Jenkins-Clarke( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this Discussion Paper is to examine the constraints upon, and opportunities for, spreading the workload of general practitioners (GPs) more effectively and efficiently among members of the Primary Health Care Team (PHCT). Current knowledge of GP activity is outdated and based on self-reporting by GPs and nurses using methods which may be unreliable. The policy background and the research background are briefly outlined before discussing methodologies for examining the activities of the PHCT and assessing whether tasks can be delegated. [Author]
