Abstract:

This paper uses Census microdata and a regression-based approach to assign multi-division firms’ pre-2008 Research and Development (R&D) expenditures to more than one industry. Since multi-division firms conduct R&D in more than one industry, assigning R&D to corresponding industries provides a more accurate representation of where R&D actually takes place and provides a consistent time-series with the National Science Foundation R&D by line of business information. Firm R&D is allocated to industries on the basis of observed industry payroll, as befits the historic importance of payroll in Census assignments of firms to industry. The results demonstrate that the method of assigning R&D to industries on the basis of payroll works well in earlier years, but becomes less effective over time as firms outsource their manufacturing function.

Vienna Institute of Demographic Research Working Paper: “A Tale of Disaster Experience in Two Countries: Does Education Promote Disaster Preparedness in the Philippines and Thailand,” by Roman Hoffmann and Raya Muttarak (VID Working Paper No. 9/2015, November 2015, .pdf format, 35p.).

Abstract:

Preparing for a disaster can substantially minimize loss and damages from natural hazards. Amongst other socio-demographic determinants, disaster experience and education are found to be key predictors of individual disaster preparedness. This paper explores the pathways through which education enhances disaster preparedness and the interplay between education and experience in shaping preparedness behaviours. Data analysis is based on face-to-face interviews in two disaster-prone countries: the Philippines and Thailand. While education raises the propensity to prepare against disasters, we further find that the effect of education on disaster preparedness is mainly mediated through social capital and disaster risk perception in Thailand but there is no evidence that education is mediated through other observable channels in the Philippines. This in turn suggests that the underlying mechanisms explaining the education effects are highly context-specific. Furthermore, we show that education raises disaster preparedness only for the households that have not been affected by a disaster in the past. One explanation could be that education improves abstract reasoning and anticipation skills
such that the better educated undertake preventive measures without needing to first experience the harmful event and then learn later.
