SUBJECTIVE APPROACH TO ASSESSING POVERTY IN POLAND – IMPLICATIONS FOR SOCIAL POLICY

significantly different distributions of poverty, as different types of households are considered in line with the result in Bishop et al. (2014) for the eurozone countries. The subjective approach suggests that one-person households, not large families, should be considered most at risk of material poverty. Futhermore, the relative positions of households in the income distributions also differ considerably. As a consequence, the current shape of social policy in Poland may need to be reconsidered in order

EX-ANTE ANALYSIS MODEL OF THE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY REGULATIONS

1. INTRODUCTION The economic effectiveness of environmental policy can be measured using several methods known in the source literature and quite well identified in theory, such as economic impact analysis, cost-benefit analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, risk analysis or multi-criteria analyses. From an economic point of view, the best of these is a cost-benefit analysis. It allows for comparison in monetary units of all costs and benefits related to the implementation and operation of a

TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT AS A TOOL OF TRANSPORT POLICY

This article presents the concept of transportation demand management (TDM) in the EU transport policy context. Authors present the source of transport intensity problems and also show good practices that effectively reduce the transport demand. To identify the major transportation demand problems that cities are faced with, primary and secondary research was carried out. Primary research shows the social awareness of mobility management. Secondary research consists of a thorough review of the

Managing Madness: Mental Health and Complexity in Public Policy

This paper explores the concept of collaborative care, particularly in relation to a range of new models of organisation and service that are emerging in response to one of the most problematic areas of public policy – mental health. These emerging models of coordinated mental health care are testing the limits of the evidence supporting coordinated care, and require critical evaluation. Myriad concepts of collaborative or coordinated care in health, including mental health, have created

However, the Australian evidence does support the current policy focus on good parenting programs, while also suggesting that a number of other factors matter in promoting children’s well-being.

Substantial New Monies Into National Orientation & Mobility Services Development: The Game and Play of Public Policy Implementation

POLICY-ORIENTED INFERENCE AND THE ANALYST-CLIENT COOPERATION. AN EXAMPLE FROM SMALL-AREA STATISTICS

We show on an application to small-area statistics that efficient estimation is not always conducive to good policy decisions because the established inferential procedures have no capacity to incorporate the priorities and preferences of the policy makers and the related consequences of incorrect decisions. A method that addresses these deficiencies is described. We argue that elicitation of the perspectives of the client (sponsor) and their quantification are essential elements of the

We demonstrate the efficacy of this approach by analyzing and comparing several urban networks: Sao Paulo urban infrastructure networks and Los Angeles and Chicago transportation policy networks.

Review of the effectiveness of predictive models for mesothelioma to identify lessons for asbestos-related policy

Predictions of future cases of asbestos-related disease have been undertaken at a national level to inform government policy and planning for future health needs. In general, we can separate the methods used to predict future cases of mesothelioma into models that use a) direct or b) indirect estimates of asbestos exposure. Direct estimates are those that have been derived mostly for occupationally exposed cohorts, where airborne fibre levels were measured over time. Indirect estimates tend to

The “state of play” concerning New Zealand’s transition to innovative learning environments: Preliminary results from phase one of the ILETC project

Driven by international trends and government policy, it is a requirement for all newly built schools in New Zealand to be designed as innovative learning environments (ILEs) with flexible learning spaces. These environments, celebrated by some for the “transformational” educational opportunities they may provide, also raise questions about whether the anticipated pedagogical value of these “non-traditional” spaces is based on idealised visions of teaching and learning

Class size and academic results, with a focus on children from culturally, linguistically and economically disenfranchised communities

The question of class size continues to attract the attention of educational policymakers and researchers alike. Australian politicians and their advisers, policy makers and political commentators agree that much of Australia’s increased expenditure on education in the last 30 years has been ‘wasted’ on efforts to reduce class sizes. They conclude that funding is therefore not the problem in Australian education, arguing that extra funding has not led to improved academic results. Many scholars

ANOTHER LOOK AT THE STATIONARITY OF INFLATION RATES IN OECD COUNTRIES: APPLICATION OF STRUCTURAL BREAK-GARCH-BASED UNIT ROOT TESTS

The need to understand the stationarity property of inflation of any country is paramount in the design of monetary targeting policy. In this paper, unit root hypotheses of inflation rates in 21 OECD countries are investigated using the newly proposed GARCH-based unit root tests with structural break and trend specifications. The results show that classical tests over-accept unit roots in inflation rates, whereas these tests are not robust to heteroscedasticity. As it is observed from the pre

Roll-on Roll-of (Ro-Ro) transport is one of the primary options EU policy is focusing on for developing intermodal transport and MOS initiatives, aimed at reducing road transport (especially trucks). In line with EU guidelines, this study proposes an integrated and optimized network scheme for the maritime Ro-Ro freight services currently operating in the Italian Tyrrhenian area to improve the overall supply of shipping services. The methodological approach used is based on the integration of

and population was the IV. The objective is to determine the hotspots and examine whether the number of RTC cases in a given LGA is affected by the number of RTC cases of neighbouring LGAs and an instrumental variable. The hotspots include Oluyole, Ido, Akinyele, Egbeda, Atiba, Oyo East, and Ogbomosho South LGAs. The study concludes that the number of RTC in a given LGA is affected by the number of RTC in contiguous LGAs. The policy implication is that road safety and security measures must be

An Intelligent Fuzzy Controller for Air-Condition with Zigbee Sensors

fuzzy controller for air-condition with Zigbee sensors is used to provide the comfort and energy-saving benefit. Although traditional control system (shorten as TCS) and the proposed fuzzy control system (named as FCS) have a common goal of temperature control, they differ from each other in temperature switch decision made during the each ambient temperature phases. Under the operating policy to limit the air-condition power on/off power frequency, the simulation result present the FCS energy

QUALITY OF INSTITUTIONS AND TOTAL FACTOR PRODUCTIVITY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

The key challenge for mid- and long-term policy in the European Union countries is to use the potentials of knowledge-based economy (KBE), which is a condition for maintaining high total factor productivity in Europe. For this reason, the relationship between the quality of an institutional system and total factor productivity in the EU countries has been examined. The quality of the institutional system is defined here from the perspective of incentives that influence the use of the potential
