The Age Curve: How to Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm

For years, savvy agents have hung on to definite unwavering ideals that experience dictated how they marketplace to their shoppers. The challenging fact, although, is that on the center of the alterations we see in advertising and company is predicated on one indisputable issue - the dimensions of the generations we're promoting to.

The Demography of Inequality in Brazil

This publication examines how modifications in Brazil's social, financial and political association have an effect on the demographic behaviour of people that stay in numerous components of the rustic and who occupy various positions within the social procedure. The authors assessment the heritage of unequal improvement and rfile the focus of source of revenue and land possession.

Human Population: Its Influences on Biological Diversity

During this quantity the dynamic styles of human density and distribution are tested on the subject of the viability of local species and the integrity in their habitats. Social, organic, and earth scientists describe their types, define their conclusions from box experiences, and overview the contributions of alternative scientists whose paintings is vital to this box.

Sample text

The central mathematical result is given in the following wellknown theorem, which we state without proof. 2. Let θˆ1 , . . , θˆk be independent and identically distributed normal (θ, σ 2 ) random variables. Then (i) the statistic z = (θ¯ˆ − θ )/ σ 2 /k is distributed as a normal (0, 1) random variable; and (ii) the statistic ¯ˆ t = (θ¯ˆ − θ)/ v(θ) is distributed as Student’s t with k − 1 degrees of freedom. If the variance of θ¯ˆ is essentially known without error or if k is very large, then a (1 − α) 100% confidence interval for θ is (θ¯ˆ − z α/2 v(θ¯ˆ),θ¯ˆ + z α/2 v(θ¯ˆ)), where z α/2 is the upper α/2 percentage point of the N (0, 1) distribution.

2. Although this variation of the method is not frequently employed in practice, there is exact theory regarding the properties of the estimators whenever the samples are independent. In practical applications, the samples are often dependent in some sense, and exact statistical theory for the estimators is generally not available. 3. 21 P1: OTE/SPH P2: OTE SVNY318-Wolter December 13, 2006 22 19:54 2. 2. The Case of Independent Random Groups Mutual independence of the various samples (or, more properly, of estimators derived from the samples) arises when one sample is replaced into the population before selecting the next sample.

1 displays the bias in v(θ¯ˆ) as an estimator of Var{θ}. lations and small sampling fractions, however, 2 kα kβ>α Cov{θˆα , θˆβ }/{k(k − 1)} P1: OTE/SPH P2: OTE SVNY318-Wolter December 13, 2006 19:54 36 2. The Method of Random Groups will tend to be relatively small and negative. The quantity 1 k(k − 1) k (μα − μ) ¯ 2 α=1 ¯ˆ will tend to be relatively small when μα = ˙ μ(α ¯ = 1, . . , k). Thus, the bias of v(θ) will be unimportant in many large-scale surveys and tend to be slightly positive. When the estimator θˆ is linear, various special results and estimators are available.
