Russian social media influence : understanding Russian propaganda in Eastern Europe by Todd C Helmus( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A RAND Corporation study examined Russian-language content on social media and the broader propaganda threat posed to the region of former Soviet states that include Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, and, to a lesser extent, Moldova and Belarus. In addition to employing a state-funded multilingual television network, operating various Kremlin-supporting news websites, and working through several constellations of Russia-backed "civil society" organizations, Russia employs a sophisticated social media campaign that includes news tweets, nonattributed comments on web pages, troll and bot social media accounts, and fake hashtag and Twitter campaigns. Nowhere is this threat more tangible than in Ukraine, which has been an active propaganda battleground since the 2014 Ukrainian revolution. Other countries in the region look at Russia's actions and annexation of Crimea and recognize the need to pay careful attention to Russia's propaganda campaign. To conduct this study, RAND researchers employed a mixed-methods approach that used careful quantitative analysis of social media data to understand the scope of Russian social media campaigns combined with interviews with regional experts and U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization security experts to understand the critical ingredients to countering this campaign."--Publisher's description
Methodology of the 2016 RAND Presidential Election Panel Survey (PEPS) by Michael Pollard( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2016 RAND Presidential Election Panel Survey uses the American Life Panel (ALP) to study voting intentions, public opinion, and voter behavior. The ALP is a scientifically recruited Internet panel. Using the ALP allows us to contact the same people over time to study the evolution of their voting intentions, behavior, and opinions. Furthermore, we follow previous RAND election surveys by asking respondents about their voting intentions in probabilistic terms (percent chance), which improves forecasts. This document provides a detailed description of our methodology
Tax concessions to boost investment : a perspective by Joshua Mendelsohn( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Summary: There has been concern in Canada, particularly in the business community, that future investments will not be adequate to allow the country to meet its social and economic goals. . . . One of the most often heard suggestions for remedying the problem of capital formation is the introduction of further tax concessions to business. . . . Although Canada has made extensive use of business tax concessions over the years, the question of the usefulness of such measures in achieving the desired goals remains unresolved. This "Observations" provides a perspective on business tax concessions as a policy option and assesses their role in the Canadian context
Assessing, monitoring and evaluating Army security cooperation : a framework for implementation by Angela O'Mahony( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Army conducts security cooperation activities with partner nations to achieve several objectives, including building relationships that promote U.S. security interests and developing partners' capabilities for self-defense and multinational operations. Evaluating the effectiveness of these activities, however, has been difficult. To examine this issue, this report addresses two questions: when can Army security cooperation have the greatest impact, and how should the Army assess, monitor, and evaluate security cooperation? The authors conducted a literature review of both security cooperation and international development assistance studies; they identified factors corresponding to when assistance was provided and where it was effective. They followed this up with a statistical analysis in which they reviewed more than 9,000 security cooperation activities conducted between 2009 and 2014 for how well they aligned with lessons learned from the literature review. They found that Army security cooperation generally favors countries in need of greater engagement, countries with which the United States would like to improve relations, and countries for which engagement will be the most productive. And while Army security cooperation activities have aligned fairly well with what previous analyses have found contribute to effectiveness in both security cooperation and international development assistance, the lack of systematic assessment, monitoring, and evaluation across activities makes it difficult to know whether the activities effectively met their objectives. Thus, the authors present a framework and portfolio tool to help the Army implement an assessment, monitoring, and evaluation process that is in line with current Army doctrine and emerging guidance from the Department of Defense

Social media and the Army : implications for outreach and recruiting by Jennie W Wenger( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the U.S. population has increasingly adopted social media platforms, the U.S. Army has established its own recruiting website and social media accounts to facilitate communication and interaction with potential recruits, family members, and friends. While the growth in social media use has expanded the options available for Army recruiting, it also raises questions as to how the Army can best leverage technology to improve the effectiveness of its recruiting and the ways it connects with youth. The Army Marketing and Research Group (AMRG) asked RAND Arroyo Center to examine these issues and to develop strategies and recommendations. Given the advances in the use of technology, our goal in this report is to analyze several online and social media platforms used by the Army, in particular GoArmy.com (the Army's main recruiting and outreach webpage) and the Facebook and Twitter accounts maintained by AMRG. We focus on these three platforms because they are used by AMRG as its primary means of communication and outreach. We analyze various measures to understand if and how potential recruits and others are engaging with these platforms. We also present information about the likely outcomes of the Army's technology-based outreach efforts

Current and projected characteristics and unique health care needs of the patient population served by the Department of Veterans Affairs by Christine Eibner( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 addressed the need for access to timely, high-quality health care for veterans. Section 201 of the legislation called for an independent assessment of various aspects of veterans' health care. The RAND Corporation was tasked with an assessment of the current and projected demographics and health care needs of patients served by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The number of U.S. veterans will continue to decline over the next decade, and the demographic mix and geographic locations of these veterans will change. While the number of veterans using VA health care has increased over time, demand will level off in the coming years. Veterans have more favorable economic circumstances than non-veterans, but they are also older and more likely to be diagnosed with many health conditions. Not all veterans are eligible for or use VA health care. Whether and to what extent an eligible veteran uses VA health care depends on a number of factors, including access to other sources of health care. Veterans who rely on VA health care are older and less healthy than veterans who do not, and the prevalence of costly conditions in this population is projected to increase. Potential changes to VA policy and the context for VA health care, including effects of the Affordable Care Act, could affect demand. Analysis of a range of data sources provided insight into how the veteran population is likely to change in the next decade

Improving child welfare outcomes : balancing investments in prevention and treatment by Jeanne S Ringel( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To provide objective analyses about the effects of prevention and treatment programs on improve child welfare outcomes, RAND researchers built a quantitative model that simulated how children enter and flow through the nation's child welfare system. They then used the model to project how different policy options (preventive services, family preservation treatment efforts, kinship care treatment efforts, and a policy package that combined preventive services and kinship care) would affect a child's pathway through the system, costs, and outcomes in early adulthood. This study is the first attempt to integrate maltreatment risk, detection, pathways through the system, and consequences in a comprehensive quantitative model that can be used to simulate the impact of policy changes. This research suggests that expanding both prevention and treatment is needed to achieve the desired policy objectives: Combining options that intervene at different points in the system and increasing both prevention and treatment generates stronger effects than would any single option. The simulation model identifies ways to increase both targeted prevention and treatment while achieving multiple objectives: reducing maltreatment and the number of children entering the system, improving a child's experience moving through the system, and improving outcomes in young adulthood. These objectives can all be met while also reducing total child welfare system costs. A policy package combining expanded prevention and kinship supports pays for itself: There is a net cost reduction in the range of 3 to 7 percent of total spending (or approximately $5.3 billion to $10.5 billion saved against the current baseline of $155.9 billion) for a cohort of children born over a five-year period
