UPDRS scores when on medication ranged from 7 to 88; tremor graded according to the UPDRS was scored as 1 (slight and infrequent) in 4 participants (25%), 2 (mild and impersistent) in 6 (38%), 3 (moderate and mostly present) in 4 (25%) and 4 (marked and mostly present) in 2 (13%).
(89) The results showed that "undercontrolled children (described as irritable, impulsive, and impersistent), at age 3 were predictive of involvement in health-risk behaviors at age 21." (90) Personality traits including low control, low social closeness, and high levels of aggression were predictive of engaging in health-risk (e.g.

This formation consists of blue-grey shale, occasionally gypsiferous, with one or two impersistent limestone horizons.
A thin (0-0.6 m) impersistent reddish-gray mudstone within ooid grainstones in the Bangor Limestone, approximately 1100 feet above the base of the Mississippian section, is interpreted as a paleosol (B horizon) and a possible sequence boundary.
Higher conglomerates and coarse sandstone beds in predominant mudrock again show evidence of shallow stream deposits, probably laid down as laterally impersistent lenses.
Highly impersistent (e.g., mean-reverting) earnings can be the outcome of neutral application of accounting standards in some economic environments, while management interventions in the reporting process can, within limits, transform an inherently impersistent earnings stream into an apparently persistent stream.
