Data from the Longitudinal Study on Aging (LSOA) were analyzed to describe the heterogeneity of functional status transitions over 2-years (single-state model), and to explore whether changes in status in the previous two to four year period enhance the prediction of a subsequent transition (two-state model). Multivariate logistic regression with a robust(More)
This study examined the effects of declining functional status and the availability of assistance on community-based residential mobility. Wolinsky and colleagues (1993), using data from the 1984, 1986, and 1988 waves of the Longitudinal Study on Aging, reported other transitions that result from increased health demand, namely those of nursing home(More)
To reduce the potential bias resulting from differential loss to follow-up in the Longitudinal Study of Aging (LSOA), information obtained from household contact methods was supplemented with information from the National Death Index (NDI). This article examines the degree of agreement in the vital status data from two sources (reinterview contacts and the(More)
Nonlinear source-filter theory is applied to explain some acoustic differences between two contrasting male singing productions at high pitches: operatic style versus jazz belt or theater belt. Several stylized vocal tract shapes (caricatures) are discussed that form the bases of these styles. It is hypothesized that operatic singing uses vowels that are(More)
