In other words, maternal deaths are due to the absence of medical care from health professionals or the lack of medical supplies-and not from sheer pregnancy or the high TFR.
I checked NOTAMS for Truckee, but I failed to notice any mention of the TFR. While obscure, it was there staring me in the face when I checked after landing: an airspace NOTAM referencing FDC 2/9708.
For those ages 62-64, the effects are very strong for both the propensity to report oneself as retired, with elasticities of .396 for the RCS and .833 for the TFR, and the propensity to claim Social Security benefits, .327 for the RCS and .677 for the TFR. (These effects on reporting oneself as retired and claiming Social Security benefits were both after controlling for the Social Security earnings threshold; the effects are actually increased by adding this control.) Overall, the effects of the two cohort size variables are actually strongest for the 62-64 age group.
The deviation is usually attributed to a cultural preference for boys, which will take an additional toll on both populations, as the future scarcity of women implies that both countries' reproductive capacity is below what is suggested by the unadjusted TFR.
The policy document projects to achieve the target of CPR 65.3 per cent by the year 2011, but here also the state may succumb to the same problem as that of TFR. The traditional attitude and conservative practice of the people towards the use of modern method of contraception is the possible explanation of this scenario.
Consistent with the theoretical prediction, the empirical results suggest, based on Hong Kong annual data at the aggregate level covering the period from 1971 to 2005, that a 1% increase of HPs is significantly related to a 0.45% decrease in fertility rates, which is robust to sensitivity tests with an alternative model specification and alternative measures of TFR. This implies that high HP inflation can account for about 65% of the fertility decrease in Hong Kong in the past four decades.
Conversely, if and when women who postponed childbearing do have children at higher ages, they will provide a boost to the fertility rates of those age groups, and to the TFR. The increase in Australia's TFR since 2001 is largely attributable to births to women aged 30 to 39 years.
The product of these indices and the hypothetical maximum potential fertility-estimated to be 15.3 lifetime births per woman--yields the predicted TFR. The large increase in the proportion of women who used contraceptives translates into the large decrease, in the value for contraception, which fell from 0.42 in 1994 to 0.26 in 2004.
The similarity in trends fails to suggest a major effect of the 1984 law, since this policy should have affected the 15-24 TFR more than the total TFR.
of any reactant or products or intermediates) to achieve maximum rate, as the mass is exposed to very short time in TFR. In view of these advantages, the following reactions were studied in both Lab (0.013 m2 area, MOC glass) & Pilot (0.1 m2 area, MOC SS-316) plant TFR system and evaluated process efficiencies in comparison to batch processes.
