Information is available on the characteristics of units added and removed from the housing stock." The latest report is based on the 2004 American Housing Survey Metropolitan Survey

A. "Settlement size and fertility in the Nordic countries," by Hill Kulu, Andres Vikat, and Gunnar Andersson (WP-2006-024, August 2006, .pdf format, 36p.).

Abstract:

There is a growing body of literature that looks at the causes of below-replacement fertility in developed countries. While the variation in childbearing patterns across countries and between socio-economic groups within a country has been studied in detail, little is known about the differences in fertility patterns across settlements within a country. A few recent studies suggest that there are persistent differentials between high- and low-fertility settlements in contemporary Europe. This study examines fertility variation across settlements in four Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. We base our study on aggregate and individual-level register data. We first examine annual total and parity-specific fertility across settlement type from the mid-1970s to the early twenty-first century. We proceed to study the relative contribution of the socio-economic characteristics of the local populations and the characteristics of the settlements to this variation, using hazard regression models.

B. "On asymptotic failure rates in bivariate frailty competing risks models," by Maxim S. Finkelstein and Veronica Esaulova (WP-2006-023, August 2006, .pdf format, 12p.).

Abstract:

A bivariate competing risks problem is considered for a rather general class of survival models. The lifetime distribution of each component is indexed by a frailty parameter. Under the assumption of conditional independence of components the correlated frailty model is considered. The explicit asymptotic formula for the mixture failure rate of a system is derived. It is proved that asymptotically the remaining lifetimes of components tend to be independent in the defined sense. Some simple examples are discussed.

Kaiser Family Foundation Website Updates:

A. "KaiserEDU.org presents a new slide tutorial providing an overview of the private health insurance system narrated by Karen Pollitz, research professor at Georgetown University. Basic concepts that are important in understanding private health insurance and how it works, such as risk spreading, risk selection, and regulation, are discussed. A new issue module summarizes research and data on human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer and discusses issues related to the implementation of the new HPV vaccine, including public education, financing, and privacy. KaiserEDU.org has also updated its directory of health policy fellowships with new listings for undergraduates, graduate students and professionals searching for summer, school-year, or post-doctoral positions."
