Center for Disease Control (DHEW/PHS), Atlanta, GA. (1970). Family Planning Evaluation. Abortion Surveillance Report–Legal Abortions, United States, Annual Summary, 1970. This report summarizes abortion information received by the Center for Disease Control from collaborators in state health departments, hospitals, and other pertinent sources. While it is intended primarily for use by the above sources, it may also interest those responsible for family planning evaluation and hospital abortion planning. Information in narrative and statistical form delineates the status of abortion reporting systems in the 16 states that passed new abortion laws between January 1, 1967 and December 31, 1970, reported legal abortions, abortion ratios, demographic characteristics of the population of women who received legal abortions, reasons for which legal abortions are performed, and procedures used to perform abortions. Four special studies on abortion are highlighted: Joint Program for the Study of Abortion; The Practice of Legal Abortion – New York City; Decrease in Septic Abortion Morbidity in a Municipal Hospital – Los Angeles, California; and Hospital Study of Abortion Services. A short history of abortion law changes in the United States prior to 1970 is presented, along with a more thorough review of legislative and judicial changes affecting American abortion laws during 1970. Changes in the abortion laws and practices of Canada and Finland are detailed under International Notes.   [More]  Descriptors: Abortions, Family Planning, Graphs, Medical Services

Shoemaker, Pamela J. (1996). Hardwired for News: Using Biological and Cultural Evolution to Explain the Surveillance Function, Journal of Communication. Builds a theoretical argument to explain both why human beings are interested in news and why much news content involves the identification of environmental threats and deviance. Argues that the desire to receive and transmit information is biologically and culturally derived, and that both biology and culture have a profound impact on the form that news content takes.

Prices Surveillance Authority, Melbourne (Australia). (1993). Monitoring of Childcare Fees: Prices Surveillance Authority Monitoring Report No. 13. This report documents a survey conducted to determine if Australian parents have benefited from an increase in child care assistance subsidies authorized in April 1993. A total of 281 day care centers across Australia responded to surveys mailed in July 1992, February 1993, and May 1993. Data was also collected about profit margins, quality of services, excess demand, and the effects of competition. Although subsidies increased from $103 to $108.50 per week per child, the average fees charged by day care centers rose by more than the $5.50 increase. The report also found that: (1) private centers raised their fees more sharply than non-profit or government centers; (2) fee increases were not uniform, with some centers actually lowering fees or keeping them fixed; (3) government centers operated with higher cost structures than private or non-profit centers; (4) staff level and staff-child ratios increased between 1992 and 1993; (5) 85 percent of centers maintained a waiting list; and (6) the child care industry's ability to increase the supply of child care services is crucial to maintaining competitive pressures on fee movements. Five appendixes contain correspondence concerning the report, follow-up survey data, and various tables of child care statistics.

Damron, C. Frazier (1977). Accident Surveillance Systems for Sports. Sports Safety Series, Monoqraph No. 2. This monograph discusses the concept of an effective sports accident data system, various systems in existence at the state and national levels, and basic considerations for the development of such data systems in sports. The document is divided into six chapters providing a framework for investigating the "state of the art" of accident data systems. Chapter One, the introduction, presents a broad outline for the development of an effective reporting system, and the need for initiating this process. Chapter Two discusses national general data systems that include information on sports accidents, and Chapter Three investigates similar systems existing at the state level. Chapter Four surveys selected accident data systems specifically dealing with sports, including the National Athletic Injury Reporting System, annual surveys of football injuries, accident data available through statewide insurance benefit plans, and examples of specialized accident data studies for selected sports. Chapter Five examines basic considerations for developing accident data systems in sports including the following processes: organization, reporting, investigation, data summarization, and data analysis. Chapter six summarizes the value to be gained from instituting an effective accident data system. A bibliography of ninety-nine citations is appended.   [More]  Descriptors: Athletics, Data Collection, Databases, Information Needs

Whitehouse, B.; Patel, M.; Gofton, K. (1991). Closed Circuit TV Surveillance Systems in Educational Buildings: Crime Prevention in Schools. Building Bulletin 75. Recent years have shown an increase in arson, theft, and vandalism committed in educational facilities resulting in a need for managers to formulate security policies. This document provides technical advice and guidance on policy for the design, specification, installation, maintenance, operation, and management of closed circuit TV (CCTV) systems in all types of educational facilities. It also includes case studies and gives elemental costs which allow estimates to be made. The appendix examines CCTV system hardware, including cameras and lenses, monitors, cabling and wiring, and types of video recorders.   [More]  Descriptors: Closed Circuit Television, Crime Prevention, Elementary Secondary Education, Foreign Countries

Resnicow, Ken; Hearn, Marsha; Delano, Richard K.; Conklin, Thomas; Orlandi, Mario A.; Wynder, E. L. (1997). Development of a Nutrition Knowledge Scale for Elementary School Students: Toward a National Surveillance System, Journal of Health Education. Reports the development of two nutrition behavior scales (for grades 2-3 and grades 4-6) given to 3,107 students from 129 schools nationwide. Results indicated significant nutrition knowledge gaps among students and identified several groups with excess knowledge gaps. The instrument appeared appropriate for most of the U.S. population.

Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs. (1975). Nutrition and Health with an Evaluation on Nutritional Surveillance in the United States. Focusing on America's self-knowledge about its nutritional health, this report deals with the availability of nutrition evaluation and counseling to individuals and the adequacy of the national nutrition monitoring system. Bureaucratic and political problems of applying nutritional health considerations to food policy are also examined. Nutrition education outside the medical setting, the status of nutrition research, and the nutritional quality and safety of food are topics left to further inquiry. Among the topics discussed in the introduction are the diseases of overabundance, undernutrition, nutrition knowledge, food production and nutrition policy, and control of nutrition policy. Chapter 1 shows that the medical profession has been extremely slow to take nutrition seriously. Chapter 2 discusses the failure to establish an effective nutrition monitoring system in the United States and the consequences of this failure. Chapter 3 describes the random efforts of HEW to coordinate nutritional health policy. Recommendations are made for areas covered in each chapter.   [More]  Descriptors: Allied Health Occupations Education, Eating Habits, Foods Instruction, Government Role
