Participação das atividades de saúde na economia brasileira: informações da Conta de Saúde de 2000 a 2007
TLDR
O setor saude tem uma participacao importante na economia brasileira, embora essa participatione ainda seja inferior aquela observada em paises de alta renda.
Generational differences in longitudinal blood pressure trajectories by geographic region during socioeconomic transitions in China
TLDR
Generational differences in BP trajectories and geographic and sex variations in the cohort trends highlight the need for tailored interventions to tackle the generation, region, and sex-based risk of CVDs.
Arbitrage-free pricing of CVA for cross-currency swap with wrong-way risk under stochastic correlation modeling framework
TLDR
The proposed method is believed to provide a promising way to model WWR, where the impact of stochastic correlation on calculated CVA is substantial when compared to the case when a high constant correlation is assumed between exposure and credit.
Markets and communities: the social cost of the meritocracy
Critiques of the meritocracy have centered on its narrow definition and biased assessment of merit, its stigmatization of the unsuccessful, and excessive competition. This paper identifies a
Appropriate Use of Linear Growth Measures to Assess Impact of Interventions on Child Development and Catch-Up Growth.
TLDR
The use of linear growth measures to evaluate intervention impact and catch-up is examined and a broad set of measures and indicators of outcomes and immediate and underlying determinants are used to assess the impact of nutrition interventions.
The age-performance relationship in the general population and strategies to delay age related decline in performance
TLDR
The maintenance of physical or cognitive performances at older ages would result in both optimal health and promote resistance to disabling conditions and chronic diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Age-Related Upper Limits in Physical Performances.
TLDR
It is shown that the gender gap in maximal performance regarding age increases gradually, especially after the age of 50, suggesting that age-related maximal physical performances for H. sapiens are reaching their physiological limits.
The biological hypothesis in cliometrics of growth: a methodological critique of Fogel (post 1982) and Ashraf & Galor (2013)
TLDR
It is argued that despite some similarities, the questions raised by Fogel's and Ashraf & Galor's theories are of distinct nature, and proposed a methodological critique of their use of biological variables as determinants of the historical dynamics of economic growth.
Predictors of Exceptional Longevity: Gender Differences in Effects of Early-Life and Midlife Conditions
TLDR
It is suggested that men are more sensitive to the effects of early-life conditions on longevity, and strong positive effect of farmer occupation at middle age on exceptional longevity for men.
