Economic costs of alcohol and drug abuse in Texas : 1997 update by Liang Y Liu( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an update of the costs of alcohol and drug abuse for 1997. The 1997 costs were estimated by multiplying the percent changes in various socioeconomic factors from 1989 to 1997 by the cost estimates. The adverse health and social consequences of substance abuse extensively increased costs to the state. The total economic costs of alcohol and drug abuse in Texas were estimated at $19.3 billion in 1997. More than 60 percent of the costs resulted from lost productivity ($8.1 billion) and premature death ($3.9 billion) caused by substance abuse. On a per capita basis, the 1997 amount translates to $1,001 per man, woman, and child in the state. Cost estimates are presented in charts and tables with discussion. Core costs include cost of treatment, morbidity (lost productivity), and mortality (premature death). Direct cost variables studied include crime, motor vehicle crashes, social welfare administration, and fire destruction; indirect costs include productivity losses due to victimization, incarceration, and criminal careers. Costs due to diseases are related to aids, Hepatitis b, and perinatal substance exposure. Methods used, data sources, and adjustment factors are discussed. Comparison costs for 1989, 1994 and 1997 are appended. (Author/EMK)

Texas -- AASHTO retroreflective sign sheeting specifications by Liang Y Liu( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) was appointed to chair an American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) effort to develop a specification that will simplify and improve how sign sheeting materials will be specified for state DOTs. At the same time, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) began efforts to modify their specifications which over the years have expanded to the point that each type that is specified is unique to a single producer. To address the true differences in the performance of these materials the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) conducted a sign sheeting research demonstration, "Standard Specification for Retroreflective Sheeting for Traffic Control," held on May 21-22, 2009, in College Station, Texas. The two entities hosted the event in which manufacturers, industry, and end users joined forces to attempt to resolve questions regarding how drivers perceive retroreflective sign materials. This report contains the proceedings of the field trip experience from the May demonstration in Texas and summarizes the discussions leading to a final draft specification (7/25/09) that was distributed to the AASHTO Subcommittee on Materials Tech Section 4d Sign Sheeting Task Force. This effort led to a new AASHTO Standard Specification for Retroreflective Sheeting for Traffic Control (M 268-09)
