This study examines data from the 1983-1993 California hospital industry to test whether observed patterns of wage inequality growth can be explained by the skill-biased technological change hypothesis. The study finds little evidence of a direct link between technological inputs and skill premia, particularly when growth in firm size is taken into account. The findings challenge the notion that t......

Does exposure to environmental toxicants inhibit our ability to have healthy children who develop normally? Biologic markers--indicators that can tell us when environmental factors have caused a change at the cellular or biochemical level that might affect reproductive ability--are a promising tool for research aimed at answering that important question. Biologic Markers in Reproductive Toxicology......

Of all the outputs of forests, water may be the most important. Streamflow from forests provides two-thirds of the nation's clean water supply. Removing forest cover accelerates the rate that precipitation becomes streamflow; therefore, in some areas, cutting trees causes a temporary increase in the volume of water flowing downstream. This effect has spurred political pressure to cut trees to inc......

Hypertension is the condition of chronically elevated blood pressure. Data on its prevalence and adverse consequences are used in the Health Insurance Study (HIS) to investigate the effect of different levels of insurance on health status and quality of care for three main reasons: widespread prevalence, association with considerable morbidity and mortality, and amenability to treatment and contro......
