The Current Population Survey (CPS) is well known to under-estimate the number of people with Medicaid. This project matched CPS records to Medicaid administrative data. Those matched data were used to estimate models of error rates (i.e., the probability that someone who says that they do not have Medicaid has Medicaid; and vice versa). This document reports the results of that estimation. The re......

DescriptionOne-dimensional population balances are used as a modelling tool for a variety of chemical processes. In particle technology population balances are typically used for modelling agglomeration processes – e.g. in fluid bed granulation processes. In this text the population balances are introduced and fully derived with focus on each of the terms in the balance. The text is an exce......
