Explains an inexpensive and convenient procedure for obtaining nearly unbiased estimates of a population parameter [y] from a biased sample with only a small loss in the efficiency of the estimates.The usual procedure prescribed by statistical theory is to regress survey response variable [y] on explanatory variables whose population means can be reliably estimated from sample selection records.Th......

The Short-Term Aggregate Inventory Projection Model (SAM) is the component of the Enlisted Force Management System that makes monthly projections (for the rest of the current fiscal year) of the "aggregate" force (the total enlisted force across all specialties). Module 1 (the separation projection module) of SAM is designed to forecast the monthly loss and reenlistment flows that would occur in t......

Addresses the problem of modeling students' choices among institutions of higher education.This study offers a methodological approach which obviates certain difficulties encountered in previous studies, where the primary tool of analysis has been conditional logit.A parametric model for P(j;i), the probability that student i chooses institution j is developed:the parameters of P(i;j), the distrib......

Because censored sampling is often unavoidable in much sociological data analysis, computationally simple corrections of censoring bias would be useful. Heckman's correction is simple to compute, widely used, and proven asymptotically correct under certain assumptions, but its limitations in practical situations are not well known in sociology. This Note provides an overview of prior criticisms of......

OBJECTIVE: To describe the distribution of the supply and requirements for subspecialty ophthalmologists.METHODS: Estimates from the Eye Care Workforce Study were used to provide subspecialty-based assessments of the supply and public health need, as well as market demand, for care provided by subspecialists. Reconciliation with the boundary models (optometry first, ophthalmology first) of the Eye......

The authors conducted a workforce study of eye care providers (ophthalmologists, non-ophthalmic physicians, and optometrists) in the United States. Using data from a RAND survey of U.S. ophthalmologists and from publicly available datasets, the authors determined the supply of available providers, and estimated the present and future public health need for eye providers and the current level of de......

This report proposes a way to think about the stockage decisions service maintenance depots must make. The approach involves defining the value of each part so the costs of parts can be related to their effects on fixing end-items. Very simply, if a part breaks frequently and tends to hold up the repair of an expensive end-item, then a spare is very valuable. Using the measure of value, the author......
