    Description: Death certificates for 1977 filed with the New York State Department of Health were studied to determine where people died. Data were examined by the location and cause of death and by the age, sex, race, and marital status of the decedent. Comparisons were made with a similar study in which U.S. data were used for 1958 events. Approximately 60 percent of all the 1977 deaths in upstate New York occurred in hospitals; only 27 percent occurred outside an institution. The location of death varied by all the factors studied. Within all age categories, males had a higher percentage of hospital deaths. In those age categories in which nursing home deaths comprised a significant proportion of total deaths, females had a higher percentage of such deaths than males. Differences in the location of death according to its cause reflect the nature of the cause of death, for example, whether it was of sudden onset or the result of chronic disease. Most people do not consider in advance where they might die. The idea that age, sex, and marital status, as well as the more obvious cause, all play a part in the location may seem surprising. Yet all these factors were found to be associated with the location of deaths in upstate New York, and there is no reason to believe that this association does not hold true for the entire nation. More research, however, needs to be done based on more years and other geographic areas. Trends in the location of death by decedent's age, sex, race, and marital status may be instructive as to the present state of health resources.

    Description: Although investigations into amino acid geochemistry of foraminifera have included the use of ultrasonic cleaners as part of their cleaning procedure, there apparently has been no attempt to determine what effects this procedure may have on the observed chemical changes. This paper presents the results of a time study showing the effects of cleaning on ten protein amino acids and the non-protein alloisoleucine. The data suggest that there are three loosely defined groups which all ultimately undergo an exponential decrease in concentration, but which vary within the initial 45 min of treatment: Group I, stable; Group II, constantly decreasing; Group III, showing slight increases. The observed effects suggest that studies based on amino acid enantiomeric ratios probably are the least affected by procedural errors introduced by ultrasonification.

    Description: Errors of misclassification and their effects on subsequent categorical data analysis are the focus of this paper. The chi-square test for equality of two proportions is examined in the context of errorful categorical data. The effects of such errors on the significance level and power of the test are illustrated. A correction procedure is developed and discussed. The study extends and elaborates upon the existing misclassification literature with a special emphasis on the implications of misclassification errors for educational research with categorical variables.

    Description: This study assessed the knowledge of and attitudes toward nurse-midwifery of a selected group of 183 women attending ASPO certified childbirth education classes in the St. Louis metropolitan area. All of the women were at least high school graduates and were primarily of middle class background. A pretested, written questionnaire was used as the data collection tool. Results from this study indicate that women with prior exposure to nurse-midwifery have a higher level of knowledge and a more favorable attitude toward nurse-midwifery than women without such exposure. It was also found that knowledge was unrelated to the age, educational level or family income of the respondents; knowledge was related to parity of the women. In addition, attitudes toward nurse-midwifery were related to women's age, educational level, parity, and family income. A moderate, positive relationship between attitude and knowledge ( r = 0.34, p 〈 0.001) may suggest that as knowledge about nurse-midwifery is acquired, attitudes toward nurse-midwifery may become more favorable. There was a general lack of information about nurse-midwives in this sample. These data may also be applicable to women who do not take childbirth education classes under the assumption that they may know even less about nurse-midwifery. This study suggests that additional public knowledge about nurse-midwifery is essential to informed choice among maternity health care options and to improved maternity care.

    Description: The “second region” of the kinetic curve for the racemization (epimerization) of isoleucine in foraminifera is defined from previously published data corrected for the thermal history experienced by the samples. These kinetic parameters are applied to racemization data from Deep Sea Drilling Project Sites 332A and 333 from the Deep Drill Valley, Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and Site 148 from the Aves Ridge, in order to determine whether there are any observable effects due to the geothermal gradient. The data for Site 148 clearly show an increase of temperature with depth. The data for the two sites of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge do not show this clear relationship. When bottom water temperature variations are taken into consideration, the effects of the geothermal gradient become apparent. Since the degree of racemization is dependent upon both age and temperature, a knowledge of the age of a sample places constraints upon its thermal history, and hence on the heat flow at the location since deposition of the sample. The crude heat flow models thus developed are compatible with present geologic and geophysical information. It appears probable that detailed heat flow models may be developed by improving analytical precision.
