Abstract:

The adrenal androgen dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate form (DHEAS) have been the focus of considerable publicity in recent years because of their demonstrated associations with a broad range of health outcomes. Yet, despite a large literature examining the health consequences of DHEA(S), few have been based on prospective surveys of population-representative samples. Thus, our knowledge about the causal effects of DHEA(S) on health in humans is limited and often inconclusive. In this analysis, we use a national longitudinal survey in Taiwan to explore the associations between DHEAS and changes over a 3-year period in functional limitations, cognitive impairment, depressive symptoms, and global self-rated health for men and women.Our estimates suggest that, for the older Taiwanese population, DHEAS is related to subsequent declines in mobility and increased depressive symptoms among men, but there are no significant associations between DHEAS and women's mental and physical health. These findings differ from those in a previous cross-sectional analysis based on the Taiwan study and underscore the importance of using prospective rather than cross-sectional data to examine the effects of DHEAS on health. The evidence to date from this study and other investigations based on longitudinal data suggests that DHEAS is protective of some health outcomes for men, but not women, in both Western and non-Western populations and raises questions about what factors give rise to these sex differences.

B. "A New Source for Land Cover Change Validation: Wal-Mart from Space," by David Potere, Neal Feierabend, Eddie Bright, and Alan Strahler (WP 2006-04, 2006, .pdf format, 17p.).

Abstract:

We introduce an event data set of the location and opening dates for 3,043 Wal-Mart stores as a means for validating land cover change-related products at medium (30 m) to coarse (250 m) resolutions throughout the conterminous United States (US). As validation data, these Wal-Mart stores and distribution centers share several favorable attributes, including construction atop a diverse array of vegetated environments, wide dispersion across the entire country, building and parking lot footprints that measure between 100 m and 500 m on a side, and construction dates that span much of the remote sensing record (1964-2005). To generate the data set, we geocoded the full Wal-Mart store address list, combined these locations with a listing of Wal-Mart store opening dates, and geo-located the store footprints of 30 Wal-Marts using cost-free high-resolution (4 m) imagery available from internet search engines.

Twenty-five stores constructed in North Carolina and Virginia between 1987 and 2002 served to validate a single scene (WRS2 p16 r035, 180 km per side) of the new Landsat Ecosystem Disturbance Adaptive Processing System (LEDAPS) product--a 28.5 m resolution forest disturbance map which is in production for the conterminous US. Disturbance events were clearly discernable in the LEDAPS beta product at all 25 of the validation sites. In addition, we selected five Wal-Mart sites constructed between 2000-2005 in Maine, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and California to validate 250 m Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) time series between 2000 and 2005. The construction events are clearly evident in all of the five-year time series from the MOD44C NDVI product from University of Maryland. These results demonstrate the effectiveness of combining an unusual disturbance event data set with free high-resolution internet-based images as a new approach for validating land cover change related products.

Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) [University of Essex, UK]: "Social Norms and Household Time Allocation," by Almudena Sevilla Sanz (ISER Working Paper No. 2006-38, August 2006, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

Economic theories of the household predict that increases in female relative human capital lead to decreases in female housework time. However, longitudinal and cross-sectional evidence seems to contradict this implication. Women's share of home time fails to decrease despite increases in women's relative earnings. The literature has proposed social norms on the household division of labor as an alternative explanation. We use the 2002-03 Spanish Time Use Survey (STUS) to explore the presence of social norms associated to the household division of housework and childcare. First, we observe that wives that earn more than their husbands still undertake more than 50% of housework and childcare. Second, we find that a woman's relative share of housework decreases as her relative earnings increase, but only up to the point when she earns the same as her husband. Finally, independently of the definition of childcare, the relative time devoted to childcare does not vary with spouses' relative earnings. All these findings suggest that social norms might be an important factor in the division of household time.
