1 Economic Complexity: Measuring the Intangibles - Matthieu Cristelli, Andrea Tacchella & Luciano Pietronero
Auteur : Matthieu Cristelli, Andrea Tacchella & Luciano Pietronero
Genre : Finance
New economic theories must be strongly data-driven in order to  provide a more concrete scientific grounding for Economics. 
In this perspective, we discuss two metrics for measuring intangible properties of the complexity of products and competitiveness of countries. The comparison of these measures with monetary figures, as the Gross Domestic Products or the Income per capita, uncovers new information to assess the hidden potential of growth and development of countries 
This work is intended as an introduction to both the scientific activity and business-oriented applications of the framework and methodologies presented. 
Economic complexity permits to acknowledge that Finance and Economics are two highly connected aspects of the same general problem and provides a framework to discuss, both from a conceptual and practical

3 Measuring Creativity in the Classroom - Steven E. Stemler
Auteur : Steven E. Stemler
Genre : Éducation
Many schools state that they aim to develop creativity in their students and a culture of creativity in their school. Yet, schools rarely take stock of whether they are achieving these aims. Indeed, we have often heard educators lament, “If only there was some way to measure creativity.” We have good news: There is! 

In this book, Dr. Steven Stemler and affiliates of his Psychometric Laboratory at Wesleyan University provide a free and accessible introduction to two of the most popular and widely researched approaches to measuring creativity. The book is filled with actual examples drawn from their research along with numerous psychometrically validated instruments that can be downloaded and used by educators for free. 

Using the MIA model presented in this book as a guide, educators can reflect in a more purposeful way about what it is that they are

Auteur : Paul R. Voss, Panel on Statistical Methods for Measuring the Group Quarters Population in the American Community Survey, Committee on National Statistics, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education & National Research Council
Genre : Sciences sociales
In the early 1990s, the Census Bureau proposed a program of continuous measurement as a possible alternative to the gathering of detailed social, economic, and housing data from a sample of the U.S. population as part of the decennial census. The American Community Survey (ACS) became a reality in 2005, and has included group quarters (GQ)-such places as correctional facilities for adults, student housing, nursing facilities, inpatient hospice facilities, and military barracks-since 2006, primarily to more closely replicate the design and data products of the census long-form sample. The decision to include group quarters in the ACS enables the Census Bureau to provide a comprehensive benchmark of the total U.S. population (not just those living in households). However, the fact that the ACS must rely on a sample of what is a small and very diverse population, combined with limited fundi

Auteur : Gooloo S. Wunderlich, Panel on Measuring Medical Care Risk in Conjunction with the New Supplemental Income Poverty Measure, Committee on National Statistics, Board on Health Care Services, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, Institute of Medicine & National Research Council
Genre : Médecine
The United States has seen major advances in medical care during the past decades, but access to care at an affordable cost is not universal. Many Americans lack health care insurance of any kind, and many others with insurance are nonetheless exposed to financial risk because of high premiums, deductibles, co-pays, limits on insurance payments, and uncovered services. One might expect that the U.S. poverty measure would capture these financial effects and trends in them over time. Yet the current official poverty measure developed in the early 1960s does not take into account significant increases and variations in medical care costs, insurance coverage, out-of-pocket spending, and the financial burden imposed on families and individuals. Although medical costs consume a growing share of family and national income and studies regularly document high rates of medical financial stress and

Genre : Secteurs et professions
U.S. agencies with responsibilities for enforcing equal employment opportunity laws have long relied on detailed information that is obtained from employers on employment in job groups by gender and race/ethnicity for identifying the possibility of discriminatory practices. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Office of Federal Contract Compliance programs of the U.S. Department of Labor, and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice have developed processes that use these employment data as well as other sources of information to target employers for further investigation and to perform statistical analysis that is used in enforcing the anti-discrimination laws.

Auteur : Arthur A. Stone, Christopher Mackie, Panel on Measuring Subjective Well-Being in a Policy-Relevant Framework, Committee on National Statistics, Division on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education & National Research Council
Genre : Mathématiques
Subjective well-being refers to how people experience and evaluate their lives and specific domains and activities in their lives. This information has already proven valuable to researchers, who have produced insights about the emotional states and experiences of people belonging to different groups, engaged in different activities, at different points in the life course, and involved in different family and community structures. Research has also revealed relationships between people's self-reported, subjectively assessed states and their behavior and decisions. Research on subjective well-being has been ongoing for decades, providing new information about the human condition. During the past decade, interest in the topic among policy makers, national statistical offices, academic researchers, the media, and the public has increased markedly because of its potential for shedding light

Auteur : Panel on Data and Methods for Measuring the Effects of Changes in Social Welfare Programs
Genre : Sciences sociales
Reform of welfare is one of the nation's most contentious issues, with debate often driven more by politics than by facts and careful analysis. Evaluating Welfare Reform in an Era of Transition identifies the key policy questions for measuring whether our changing social welfare programs are working, reviews the available studies and research, and recommends the most effective ways to answer those questions. 

This book discusses the development of welfare policy, including the landmark 1996 federal law that devolved most of the responsibility for welfare policies and their implementation to the states. A thorough analysis of the available research leads to the identification of gaps in what is currently known about the effects of welfare reform.

Auteur : Panel on Data and Methods for Measuring the Effects of Changes in Social Welfare Programs
Genre : Sciences sociales
The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996 fundamentally changed the nation's social welfare system, replacing a federal entitlement program for low-income families, called Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), with state-administered block grants, the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. PRWORA furthered a trend started earlier in the decade under so called "waiver" programs-state experiments with different types of AFDC rules-toward devolution of design and control of social welfare programs from the federal government to the states. The legislation imposed several new, major requirements on state use of federal welfare funds but otherwise freed states to reconfigure their programs as they want. The underlying goal of the legislation is to decrease dependence on welfare and increase the self-sufficiency of poor fami

Genre : Secteurs et professions
Starting in the mid 1990s, the United States economy experienced an unprecedented upsurge in economic productivity. Rapid technological change in communications, computing, and information management continue to promise further gains in productivity, a phenomenon often referred to as the New Economy. To better understand this phenomenon, the National Academies Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy (STEP) initiated a project to better measure the contributions of different elements of the “new economy” (semiconductors, computers, software, and telecommunications) and to develop policies to meet the needs of these growth-enhancing industries. Accompanied by four workshop reports, this summary volume describes the steps required to better measure and sustain the benefits of this “new economy” in the sectors examined.

Auteur : Committee on Measuring Human Capabilities: Performance Potential of Individuals and Collectives
Genre : Sciences sociales
Every year, the U.S. Army must select from an applicant pool in the hundreds of thousands to meet annual enlistment targets, currently numbering in the tens of thousands of new soldiers. A critical component of the selection process for enlisted service members is the formal assessments administered to applicants to determine their performance potential. Attrition for the U.S. military is hugely expensive. Every recruit that does not make it through basic training or beyond a first enlistment costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Academic and other professional settings suffer similar losses when the wrong individuals are accepted into the wrong schools and programs or jobs and companies. Picking the right people from the start is becoming increasingly important in today's economy and in response to the growing numbers of applicants.

Interprofessional teamwork and collaborative practice are emerging as key elements of efficient and productive work in promoting health and treating patients. The vision for these collaborations is one where different health and/or social professionals share a team identity and work closely together to solve problems and improve delivery of care. Although the value of interprofessional education (IPE) has been embraced around the world - particularly for its impact on learning - many in leadership positions have questioned how IPE affects patent, population, and health system outcomes. This question cannot be fully answered without well-designed studies, and these studies cannot be conducted without an understanding of the methods and measurements needed to conduct such an analysis.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) uses precipitation data in many applications including hurricane forecasting. Currently, NOAA uses data collected from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite that was launched in 1997 by NASA in cooperation with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. NASA is now making plans to launch the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission in 2013 to succeed TRMM, which was originally intended as a 3 to 5 year mission but has enough fuel to orbit until 2012. The GPM mission consists of a "core" research satellite flying with other "constellation" satellites to provide global precipitation data products at three-hour intervals. This book is the second in a 2-part series from the National Research Council on the future of rainfall measuring missions. The book recommends that NOAA begin its GPM mission preparations as

Genre : Sociologie
Social scientists seek to develop systematic ways to understand how people make meaning and how the meanings they make shape them and the world in which they live. But how do we measure such processes? Measuring Culture is an essential point of entry for both those new to the field and those who are deeply immersed in the measurement of meaning. Written collectively by a team of leading qualitative and quantitative sociologists of culture, the book considers three common subjects of measurement—people, objects, and relationships—and then discusses how to pivot effectively between subjects and methods. Measuring Culture takes the reader on a tour of the state of the art in measuring meaning, from discussions of neuroscience to computational social science. It provides both the definitive introduction to the sociological literature on culture as well as a critical set of

26 Measuring the World - Daniel Kehlmann
Auteur : Daniel Kehlmann
Genre : Romans et littérature
Measuring the World recreates the parallel but contrasting lives of two geniuses of the German Enlightenment - the naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and the mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. Towards the end of the 18th century, these two brilliant young Germans set out to measure the world.

Humboldt, a Prussian aristocrat schooled for greatness, negotiates savannah and jungle, climbs the highest mountain then known to man, counts head lice on the heads of the natives, and explores every hole in the ground.

Gauss, a man born in poverty who will be recognised as the greatest mathematician since Newton, does not even need to leave his home in Göttingen to know that space is curved. He can run prime numbers in his head, cannot imagine a life without women and yet jumps out of bed on his wedding night to jot dow

The numerous options of the machine-specific operating software on the one hand and the various theoretical considerations regarding a target-oriented treatment of measuring jobs on the other hand result in the fact that the measuring results obtained from the same coordinate measuring machine on the same workpiece under similar conditions may differ. 
In Order to increase the comparability of measuring results, it is necessary to provide the operators of coordinate measuring machines –in addition to a well-founded AUKOM training – with procedure options for planning, performing, evaluating a

34 Measuring the New World - Neil Safier
Auteur : Neil Safier
Genre : Science et nature
Prior to 1735, South America was terra incognita to many Europeans. But that year, the Paris Academy of Sciences sent a mission to the Spanish American province of Quito (in present-day Ecuador) to study the curvature of the earth at the Equator. Equipped with quadrants and telescopes, the mission’s participants referred to the transfer of scientific knowledge from Europe to the Andes as a “sacred fire” passing mysteriously through European astronomical instruments to observers in South America.

By taking an innovative interdisciplinary look at the traces of this expedition, Measuring the New World examines the transatlantic flow of knowledge from West to East. Through ephemeral monuments and geographical maps, this book explores how the social and cultural worlds of South America contributed to the production of European scientific knowledge during the Enlig

36 Is Our Students Earning? A New Way of Measuring How Different Colleges Pay off in the Long Run - Washington Monthly
Auteur : Washington Monthly
Genre : Ouvrages de référence
The college class of 2011 just graduated into one of the worst job markets in recent history. Twenty-four percent of 2011 grads had a job offer in hand by graduation, compared with 51 percent of students graduating in the pre-recession year of 2007. As these recent college grads move back in with their parents, and as student loan bills come due, many will wonder--was college worth the money? The short answer is: probably. While studies of past recessions suggest that the unlucky Great Recession grads will do less well economically than those graduating during better times, they are still likely to earn more and have better job prospects than their peers who lack college credentials. The June 2011 unemployment rate for those with only a high school diploma, for example, was 10 percent, as opposed to 4.4 percent for those with a college degree. And earnings for college graduates were 66

39 The Construction and Psychometric Properties of an Instrument Measuring Support for Sexual Rights. - The Journal of Sex Research
Auteur : The Journal of Sex Research
Genre : Forme et santé
The purpose of this paper is to report the findings of an attempt to construct and examine the psychometric properties of an instrument that measure support for the 11 sexual rights formulated by the World Association of Sexology. Since international conferences held in the mid- 1990s, a new approach to sexual issues has been promoted by health professionals, sex educators, and human rights advocates. This approach emphasizes the empowerment of individuals and examines sexual health concerns within a human rights framework. Goals of a sexual rights approach have been to promote awareness and advocacy of sexual issues and especially to facilitate the work toward better sex education and sexual health services. Analysis of reliability and validity data from two university samples (n = 388 and n = 175) indicated that the majority of the sexual rights scales have acceptable psychometric prop

Auteur : Canadian Journal of Public Health
Genre : Droit
The obesity epidemic is influenced by social, cultural, economic and physical contexts. (1-4) The accessibility, availability and affordability of foods have an impact on food purchasing and consumption behaviours. Access to healthy foods has been related to certain neighbourhood characteristics. Specifically, access to healthy foods is increased in higher-income neighbourhoods. (5,6) Conversely, lower-income neighbourhoods may have increased access to fast food restaurants. (7,8) Residents' diets have been found to correlate with their food environment, particularly in lower income and minority populations. (5,6,9,10) There are few published conceptual models of the food environment (3,11) and, until recently, even fewer tools to assess it. (12-14) This paper describes the development and implementation of food environment assessment tools. METHODS

Matters
44 Measuring What Matters Most - Daniel L. Schwartz
Auteur : Daniel L. Schwartz
Genre : Éducation
An argument that choice-based, process-oriented educational assessments are more effective than static assessments of fact retrieval.

If a fundamental goal of education is to prepare students to act independently in the world—in other words, to make good choices—an ideal educational assessment would measure how well we are preparing students to do so. Current assessments, however, focus almost exclusively on how much knowledge students have accrued and can retrieve. In Measuring What Matters Most, Daniel Schwartz and Dylan Arena argue that choice should be the interpretive framework within which learning assessments are organized. Digital technologies, they suggest, make this possible; interactive assessments can evaluate students in a context of choosing whether, what, how, and when to learn.

Schwartz and Arena view choice not as an instructional

Sustainability
46 Measuring Sustainability - Simon Bell & Stephen Morse
Auteur : Simon Bell & Stephen Morse
Genre : Économie
' Measuring the sustainability of development is crucial to achieving it, and is one of the most actively studied issues in the area. To date, most studies of measurements or indicators have been largely theoretical. However, this book, a follow-on to Bell and Morse's highly influential Sustainability Indicators (1999), presents valuable practical advice on how to develop measurements that will work in real-life development contexts. It describes and analyses how to derive, validate and apply indicators in the course of an actual development project - in this case the Mediterranean Action Plan in Malta. The authors explain the trade-offs and constraints involved and how it is possible to combine the open-ended and flexible perspectives of sustainability with the more linear processes and fixed targets of specific projects through the use of pragmatic and reflective methodologies.

Measuring the Risks and Causes of Premature Death is the summary of two workshops conducted by The Committee on Population of the National Research Council at the National Academies to address the data sources, science and future research needs to understand the causes of premature mortality in the United States. The workshops reviewed previous work in the field in light of new data generated as part of the work of the NRC Panel on Understanding Divergent Trends in Longevity in High-Income Countries (NRC, 2011) and the NRC/IOM Panel on Understanding Cross-National Differences Among High-Income Countries (NRC/IOM, 2013). The workshop presentations considered the state of the science of measuring the determinants of the causes of premature death, assessed the availability and quality of data sources, and charted future courses of action to improve the understanding of the causes of

Diversity
48 Measuring Plant Diversity - Thomas J. Stohlgren
Auteur : Thomas J. Stohlgren
Genre : Science de la vie
Ecologists interested in assessing landscapes and ecosystems must measure biomass, cover, and the density or frequency of various key species. Recently, sampling designs for measuring species richness and diversity, patterns of plant diversity, species-environment relationships, and species distributions have become fine-grained, as it has become increasingly important to accurately map and assess rare species for conservation. This book lays out the range of current methods for mapping and measuring species diversity, for field ecologists, resource managers, conservation biologist, and students, as a tool kit for future measurements of plant diversity.

Statistical
Agreement
50 Statistical Tools for Measuring Agreement - Lawrence Lin, A. S. Hedayat & Wenting Wu
Auteur : Lawrence Lin, A. S. Hedayat & Wenting Wu
Genre : Mathématiques
Agreement assessment techniques are widely used in examining the acceptability of a new or generic process, methodology and/or formulation in areas of lab performance, instrument/assay validation or method comparisons, statistical process control, goodness-of-fit, and individual bioequivalence. Successful applications in these situations require a sound understanding of both the underlying theory and methodological advances in handling real-life problems. This book seeks to effectively blend theory and applications while presenting readers with many practical examples. For instance, in the medical device environment, it is important to know if the newly established lab can reproduce the instrument/assay results from the established but outdating lab.  When there is a disagreement, it is important to differentiate the sources of disagreement.  In addition to agreement coefficien
