A Guide to Statistical Adjustment: How it Really Works.

A Guide to Statistical Adjustment: How it Really Works.

Date: May 23, 2001
Creator: U.S. Census Monitoring Board – Congressional Members
Description: Congress established the Census Monitoring Board to observe and monitor all aspects of the preparation and implementation of the 2000 decennial census. After the completion of the 200 census, many thoughtful parties continue a sincere debate over the implementation of statistical adjustment as a means of increasing the accuracy of the census and for its use in redistricting and the allocation of government funds and services. On March 1, 2001, the Census Bureau's Executive Steering Committee overseeing the post-census evaluation phase, the Accuracy and Coverage Evaluation (A.C.E.), recommended against adjusting the count. Reasonable people, including leading statisticians, have reviewed the statistical adjustment methodology and have raised legitimate questions. This report attempts to put that methodology into perspective and add to what will be further debate and discussion on how all of us as shareholders can continue to work together to ensure the most accurate census possible.

The 2010 Decennial Census: Background and Issues

The 2010 Decennial Census: Background and Issues

Date: May 24, 2010
Creator: Williams, Jennifer D.
Description: The U.S. Constitution--Article 1, Section 2, clause 3, as modified by Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment--requires a population census every 10 years, to serve as the basis for reapportioning seats in the House of Representatives. Decennial census data also are used for within-state redistricting and in certain formulas that determine the annual distribution of more than $400 billion dollars in federal and state funds. This report discusses the major innovations that were planned for the 2010 census, problems encountered with the attempt to automate certain census field operations, the persistent differential census undercount of less advantaged groups in the population, and efforts to ensure an equitable census.

The phase diagram of crystalline surfaces

The phase diagram of crystalline surfaces

Date: September 22, 1995
Creator: Anagnostopoulos, K.N.; Bowick, M.J. & Catterall, S.M.
Description: We report the status of a high-statistics Monte Carlo simulation of non-self-avoiding crystalline surfaces with extrinsic curvature on lattices of size up to 128{sup 2} nodes. We impose free boundary conditions. The free energy is a gaussian spring tethering potential together with a normal-normal bending energy. Particular emphasis is given to the behavior of the model in the cold phase where we measure the decay of the normal-normal correlation function.

A comparison of attribute sampling plans

A comparison of attribute sampling plans

Date: May 1, 1997
Creator: Lanning, B.M.
Description: This report describes, compares, and provides sample size selection criteria for the most common sampling plans for attribute data (i.e., data that is qualitative in nature such as Pass-Fail, Yes-No, Defect-Nondefect data). This report is being issued as a guide in prudently choosing the correct sampling plan to meet statistical plan objectives. The report discusses three types of sampling plans: AQL (Acceptable Quality Level expressed as a percent), RQL (Rejectable Quality Level as a percent), and the AQL/RQL plan which emphasizes both risks simultaneously. These plans are illustrated with six examples, one of which is an inventory of UF{sub 6} cans whose weight must agree within 100 grams of its listed weight to be acceptable.

Z-dependent barriers in multifragmentation from Poissonian reducibility and thermal scaling

Z-dependent barriers in multifragmentation from Poissonian reducibility and thermal scaling

Date: January 1, 1998
Creator: Moretto, L.G.; Beaulieu, L.; Phair, L. & Wozniak, G.J.
Description: The authors explore the natural limit of binomial reducibility in nuclear multifragmentation by constructing excitation functions for intermediate mass fragments (IMF) of a given element Z. The resulting multiplicity distributions for each window of transverse energy are Poissonian. Thermal scaling is observed in the linear Arrhenius plots made from the average multiplicity of each element. Emission barriers are extracted from the slopes of the Arrhenius plots and their possible origin is discussed.

US Department of Energy Office of Inspector General semiannual report to Congress, April 1--September 30, 1996

US Department of Energy Office of Inspector General semiannual report to Congress, April 1--September 30, 1996

Date: October 1, 1996
Creator: unknown
Description: The report summarizes significant audit, inspection, and investigative accomplishments for the reporting period which facilitated DOE management efforts to improve management controls and ensure efficient and effective operation of its programs. During this period, the Office of IG issued 52 audit and 7 inspection reports. For reports issued during the period, the Office made audit recommendations that, when implemented by management, could result in $554 million being put to better use. Management committed to taking corrective actions which is estimated to result in a more efficient use of funds totaling $22.4 million. IG actions in identifying attainable economies and efficiencies in Departmental operations have recently provided a positive dollar impact of about $4 million per audit employee per year. Also, the Office of Inspections committed major resources reviewing the Secretary of Energy`s foreign travel. IG investigations led to 20 criminal convictions, as well as criminal and civil prosecutions which resulted in fines and recoveries of $29, 365,094. The Office also provided 27 investigative referrals to management for recommended positive action.

Prediction of heat capacities of solid inorganic salts from group contributions

Prediction of heat capacities of solid inorganic salts from group contributions

Date: January 1, 1997
Creator: Mostafa, A.T.M.G.; Eakman, J.M. & Yarbro, S.L.
Description: A group contribution technique is proposed to predict the coefficients in the heat capacity correlation, C{sub p} = a + bT + c/T{sup 2} + dT{sup 2}, for solid inorganic salts. The results from this work are compared with fits to experimental data from the literature. It is shown to give good predictions for both simple and complex solid inorganic salts. Literature heat capacities for a large number (664) of solid inorganic salts covering a broad range of cations (129), anions (17) and ligands (2) have been used in regressions to obtain group contributions for the parameters in the heat capacity temperature function. A mean error of 3.18% is found when predicted values are compared with literature values for heat capacity at 298{degrees} K. Estimates of the error standard deviation from the regression for each additivity constant are also determined.
