Statistical Approaches Geographers have developed abstract methods, which facilitate realistic description but fall short of useful theorizing. We discuss two such methods here, then briefly describe economists' descriptive attempts to define and identify subcenters, those employment clusters outside the CBD. One approach, called point pattern analysis,(More)
There have been many recent proposals concerning the nature of representations for inflectional morphology. One set of proposals addresses the question of whether there is decomposition of morphological structure in lexical access, whether complex forms are accessed as whole words, or if there is a competition between these two access modes. Another set of(More)
We use data on air passenger travel expenditures per passenger as well as statistical analysis of the air traffic lost for the two-year aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks to estimate direct demand losses for air transportation services. These are used along with a national input-output model to assess the full costs of these losses. Depending on(More)
The Los Angeles metropolitan region is a prime target for a terrorist attack. There are many specific targets: the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), downtown high-rises, its theme parks, its freeways, and its ports, among many others. We have developed a spatially disaggregated economic impact model that can evaluate all of these and any other(More)
The truth-value judgment (TVJ) task has proved to be one of the most illuminating methods of assessing children's linguistic competence developed in recent years. The fundamental property of this task is that it requires the child simply to make a bipolar judgment about whether a statement accurately describes a particular situation alluded to in some(More)
PURPOSE To describe the processes and outcomes of developing and implementing a Continuity of Care Document (CCD), My Health Profile, as a personal health record for persons living with HIV (PLWH) in an HIV/AIDS Special Needs Plan in New York City. METHODS Multiple qualitative and quantitative data sources were used to describe the processes and outcomes(More)

METHODS PLWH (n = 93) in New York City completed surveys using audio computer-assisted self-interview (ACASI) that assessed willingness to share their PHI with various people and entities via a(More)
The paper explores relationships between seven dimensions of land use in 1990 and subsequent levels of three traffic congestion outcomes in 2000 for a sample of 50 large US urban areas. Multiple regression models are developed to address several methodological concerns, including reverse causation and time-lags. Controlling for prior levels of congestion(More)
In this paper, we examine the resiliency of community recovery after a natural disaster. We argue that a resilient recovery requires robust economic/financial institutions, political/legal institutions, and social/cultural institutions. We explore how politically and privately created disaster preconditions and responses have contributed to or undermined(More)
BACKGROUND Knowledge of care practices among clinicians who annually treat <20 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients with antiretroviral therapy (ART) is insufficient, despite their number, which is likely to increase given shifting healthcare policies. We analyze the practices, distribution and quality of care provided by low-volume(More)
