Managerial Economics (3,790 Books)


Managerial economics (sometimes referred to as business economics) is a branch of economics that applies microeconomic analysis to decision methods of businesses or other management units. As such, it bridges economic theory and economics in practice. It draws heavily from quantitative techniques such as regression analysis and correlation, Lagrangian calculus (linear).

Import Risk Analysis

By: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: Import Risk Analysis (IRA) is the process by which importing authorities determine whether live aquatic animal imports or their products pose a threat to the aquatic resources of their country. This is usually undertaken by the Competent Authority (CA) for the importing country, but risk analyses apply equally to the individual who wants to import live aquatic animals onto their farm or site. Adverse consequences arising from an inadequate or unconscientious IRA...

Ecologic Regression Analysis and the Study of the Influence of Air...

By: S. Selvin

Government Reference Publication

Introduction: The relationship of air quality to disease has been extensively studied and still remains a fundamental health issue. One popular approach to studying this relationship combines measures of pollution and rates of mortality by means of a linear regression analysis applied to a series of defined geographic areas. Over a dozen research efforts fall into this class (12)[s ee Ricci (3) for a complete review]. The present work attempts to use regression technique...

Introduction : Risk Analysis

By: Federal Aviation Administration

Excerpt: This paper summarizes worked conducted by OCST to analyze the effects and public risk sensitivities to destruct or flight termination actions taken on ballistic reentry vehicles (See Source Materials). Flight termination systems have been used to effectively limit vehicle deviations during powered flight regimes but are not commonly employed for risk control with un-powered reentering vehicles. This memorandum provides an overview of the capabilities, limitation...

Plos One : Arlts1 and Prostate Cancer Risk - Analysis of Expressio...

By: Amanda Ewart Toland

Description : Prostate cancer (PCa) is a heterogeneous trait for which several susceptibility loci have been implicated by genome-wide linkage and association studies. The genomic region 13q14 is frequently deleted in tumour tissues of both sporadic and familial PCa patients and is consequently recognised as a possible locus of tumour suppressor gene(s). Deletions of this region have been found in many other cancers. Recently, we showed that homozygous carriers for the T...

Relative Risk Regression Analysis of Epidemiologic Data

By: Ross L. Prentice

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: One of the most important developments in biostatistics in recent years has been the evolution of regression methods for failure time data. In epidemiology, failure may refer to the diagnosis of a certain disease or to death from the disease. Primary interest typically centers around the relationship between individual characteristics or exposures and subsequent disease incidence or mortality. In a cohort study, a group of subjects is selected from a population ...

By: Steven H. Reynolds

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Several approaches have been used to identify environmental agents posing significant carcinogenic hazards to man. These include in uifro assays for mutagenesis and in vivo tumorigenicity assays. However, most chemicals are classified as potentially hazardous to humans on the basis of long-term carcinogenesis studies in rodents. While these rodent carcinogenesis studies are designed to mimic the route of human exposure in the environment or workplace, the dose o...

Quantitative Risk Analysis for Quantal Reproductive and Developmen...

By: David W. Gaylor

Government Reference Publication

Introduction: In order to detect potential toxic effects with a limited number of animals, experimental studies typically employ doses that are higher than expected human exposure levels. Thus, high to low dose extrapolation is generally required. The following discussion of extrapolation of developmental toxicity data does not discount the possibility of a biological threshold below which no risk exists. One approach for setting acceptable levels for developmental toxic...

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: To date, the explosion of the nuclear reactor in Chernobyl, Ukraine, approximately 160 km northwest of Kiev, on 26 April 1986 is the most serious accident in a nuclear power station. The event led to a release of large quantities of radioactive material over a 10-day period. Depending on atmospheric conditions at the time, the extent of contamination in Europe was variable. Ukraine, Belarus, and parts of Russia and Scandinavia were highly contaminated by radioac...

Application of Risk Analysis Principles to the Meat Sector

By: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Nutrition Reference Publication

Excerpt: Food hygiene is defined as ?all conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety and suitability of food at all stages of the food chain? (FAO/WHO, 1999a). In the practical world of meat hygiene, this will require contributions from a range of stakeholders, including industry and government. Meat hygiene is a demanding science and must deal with different classes of hazards. Chemical hazards entering the food chain at the level of primary production includ...
