A variant on empirical experimentation, simulation offers a tool to analyze concepts that are not amenable to empirical testing.

I designed a field study which determined that a common MVC mitigation strategy, roadside vegetation cutting, does not attract moose into roadside areas to browse.

There is growing international interest in the study of social inequalities in health.1– 3 This interest is partly due to the accumulating evidence that health disparities are widening within and across countries.4– 6 Interventions designed to narrow gaps in health have become a high priority for international organizations,7, 8 but their implementation has been hampered by, among other Cited by:   1.

Specifically, we develop a set of best practices for testing the fit of the zero‐sum multinomial (ZSM) vs. a lognormal null hypothesis and apply this to a data set, concluding that the lognormal outperforms neutral theory on robust tests.

There is ample evidence supporting the negative relationship between age and educational attainment in Newfoundland. Two theories are worthy of consideration: the theory of demographic transition and the theory of human capital. Prior to Commission Government (), the educational system in Newfoundland was somewhat static.

Gaussian kernel width, and even in the limit of infinite data, there is no way to choose this width so as to guarantee convergence to the optimal answer. In this paper, we develop an alternative patch-based denoising algorithm as an empirical Bayes (EB) esti-mator, and show that it generalizes and improves on the NL-means solution.

The field of population and public health ethics (PPHE) has yet to fully embrace the generation of evidence as an important project.

This article reviews the philosophical debates related to the ‘empirical turn’ in clinical bioethics, and critically analyses how PPHE has and can engage with the philosophical implications of generating empirical data within the task of normative inquiry.
