Abstract: The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has developed a record linkage program designed to maximize the scientific value of the Center’s population-based surveys. Linking individual survey records to other data sources provides a scientifically valuable and cost-effective means to enrich existing nationally representative data collections. NCHS has linked the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES), and the National Nursing Home Surveys (NNHS) with death certificate records from the National Death Index (NDI), Medicare enrollment and claims data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and Retirement, Survivor, and Disability Insurance (RSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit data from the Social Security Administration (SSA). These linked data files provide the data resources needed to support a wide variety of sociological studies that can advance our understanding of the demographic and societal factors that influence health disparities, the aging process, mortality, access to and utilization of health care services. This poster presentation will describe NCHS linked data sources, the methodological considerations for utilizing the linked files, data access procedures, and examples of sociological research that can be conducted using these NCHS linked data resources.

"Towards A Common Center: Locating Common Characteristics of African Centeredness in an Independent African Centered Learning Environment" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 36th Annual National Council for Black Studies, Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2020-02-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p560952_index.html>
Publication Type: Panelist Abstract
Abstract: In the face of low academic achievement in the public school setting, African centered learning environments have become viable options for those who see value in culturally relevant educational environments. However there is no apparent cohesion necessarily between the various types of culturally relevant academic environments that serve African American students. Many of these independent schools, particularly ones that are African centered, claim to provide a culturally relevant environment for their students. However, the actual application of cultural relevance may vary greatly relative to how it is theorized and practiced. The apparent absence of a central definition of cultural relevance potentially impacts the ability of independent African centered schools to proactively identify themselves as part of a larger network of schools that are like-minded.
This basic interpretive study will utilize a qualitative research design to explore the perceptions and application of African Centeredness, a particular type of cultural relevance, in independent, African American learning environments. However, towards a more cohesive application of African centeredness within and between schools, this study attempts to pinpoint a common core of applied and theoretical characteristics between administrators and teachers in an African centered environment.

Abstract: Changing beliefs and practices from a teacher-centered to learner-centered paradigm are described in this case study of an elementary school applying constructivist theory to practice. Themes of teacher isolation, personal costs and benefits, scarcity of time, and performance related to evaluation, will be presented. Solutions that provide teachers the same kinds of learning conditions espoused for their students, particularly using technology, will be discussed.

Abstract: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), based in Atlanta, Georgia, is the nation’s lead public health agency. Its mission is to prevent and control disease, injury, and disability and to prepare for emerging health threats. CDC seeks to accomplish its mission in partnership, both domestically and globally, by monitoring health, detecting and investigating health problems, conducting research to enhance prevention, developing and advocating sound public health policies, implementing prevention strategies, promoting healthy behaviors, fostering safe and healthful environments, and providing leadership and training. The agency maintains a full research and practice agenda that includes the prevention of infectious diseases, chronic diseases, injuries, workplace hazards, birth defects, and disabilities, in addition to protection from environmental hazards such as lead and other toxic substances. CDC employs scientists from a variety of disciplines including those from the social and behavioral sciences. Each of these disciplines brings a unique perspective to the conduct of public health research and practice which significantly contributes to CDC’s mission overall. Information will be available regarding job opportunities, postgraduate training, the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS), and funding opportunities.

Abstract: What explains why elections in some countries are candidate-centered while elections in other countries are party-centered? Most explanations focus on electoral rules, but in this paper we advance a novel explanation rooted in the rule of law. We argue that voters are more likely to base their voting decision on the specific candidates in a race when rule of law is weak—that is, when states implement their laws and policies erratically and unevenly. Under weak rule of law, voters care about the particular politicians who are elected, since elected officials often wield considerable discretion over policy implementation. Meanwhile, in places where rule of law is strong—where states implement laws and policies consistently and uniformly—voters base their decision more on party labels because they expect that parties’ promises will, if passed into law, be implemented faithfully. Empirically, we test this argument in two ways. First, we test observable implications of this theory on aggregate-level election data from democracies around the word. Second, we test the mechanism linking the rule of law to voting behavior using an on-line survey experiment with respondents in India.
