Understanding the Equity Consequences of School-Finance Reform

Lee Friedman, Michael Wiseman

Jul 1, 1978 in Harvard Educational Review
In this essay, Lee S. Friedman and Michael Wiseman discuss the economic, legal, and logical implications of school-financing methods now practiced in several states, including Illinois, New York, and California. Examining the Serrano case in California, the authors contend that an important inconsistency in the court requirements resulted from the apparent failure of both the courts and the legisl...

Analysis of Heuristic and Digital Filters as Applied to Video-oculography Signals

Mehedi H. Raju et 4 al.

Sep 16, 2022 in Arxiv
In 1993, Stampe [1993] suggested two "heurisitic" filters that were designed for video-oculography data. Several manufacturers (e.g., SR-Research, Tobii T60 XL and SMI) have employed these filters as an option for recording eye-movements. For the EyeLink family of eye-trackers, these two filters are referred to as standard (STD) or EXTRA. We have implemented these filters as software functions. Fo...

Effects of commodity on the risk of emphysema in South African miners.

Sithembile L Mabila, Jill Murray et 6 al.

Nov 7, 2019 in International archives of occupational and environmental health
To examine associations between mine commodity such as coal, platinum, or diamonds and emphysema among South African miners at autopsy. We examined the association between mine commodity and emphysema using the Pathology Automation (PATHAUT) database, 1975-2014. Exposure was characterized as longest tenure in each commodity. We constructed separate multivariable logistic regression models for blac...

Risk factors associated with legal interventions.

Alfreda Holloway-Beth, Lee Friedman et 5 al.

Jan 15, 2016 in Injury epidemiology
Current research regarding injuries caused during interactions between police officers and civilians is conducted intermittently or on a very narrow sample frame which provides very little clinical information about the injuries suffered or the adverse outcomes. The aim of this study is to identify comorbid risk factors and describe acute outcomes of medically treated traumatic injuries occurring ...

Levels of Ethylene Oxide Biomarker in an Exposed Residential Community.

Emily Szwiec et 3 al.

Nov 21, 2020 in International journal of environmental research and public health
The purpose of this study was to examine whether there is a difference in ethylene oxide (EtO) biomarker levels based on residential proximity to facilities emitting EtO, a carcinogen. We recruited residents living near two EtO-emitting facilities and administered a questionnaire on items such as address and length of residency, smoking habits, occupational exposures to EtO, and demographics. We a...

Workers' compensation and the working poor: Occupational health experience among low wage workers in federally qualified health centers.

Liza Topete, Lee Friedman et 3 al.

Jan 31, 2018 in American journal of industrial medicine
The working poor are at highest risk of work-related injuries and have limited access to occupational health care. To explore community health centers (CHCs) as a venue for accessing at risk workers; and to examine the experience, knowledge, and perceptions of workers' compensation (WC) among the working poor. Key informant interviews were conducted among patients in waiting rooms of rural and urb...

A novel evaluation of two related and two independent algorithms for eye movement classification during reading.

Lee Friedman et 4 al.

Aug 1, 2018 in Behavior research methods
Nystrӧm and Holmqvist have published a method for the classification of eye movements during reading (ONH) (Nyström & Holmqvist, 2010). When we applied this algorithm to our data, the results were not satisfactory, so we modified the algorithm (now the MNH) to better classify our data. The changes included: (1) reducing the amount of signal filtering, (2) excluding a new type of noise, (3) removin...

Public Health Surveillance for the Prevention of Pesticide-Related Illness in Illinois.

Emmanuel Kyeremateng-Amoah, Linda Forst et 3 al.

May 1, 2020 in Journal of occupational and environmental medicine
There is no pesticide related illness (PRI) surveillance program in Illinois. This study examines the quality of state-based data sources for their ability to inform public health surveillance on PRI. We estimated the counts of PRI by probabilistic data linkage of hospital discharge, emergency department, and poison center databases from 2010 to 2015. We characterized identified PRI cases. We iden...


A 5-Year Retrospective Analysis of Legal Intervention Injuries and Mortality in Illinois.

Alfreda Holloway-Beth, Lee Friedman et 4 al.

Mar 21, 2019 in International journal of health services
There has been a public outcry for the accountability of law enforcement agents who kill and injure citizens. Epidemiological surveillance can underscore the magnitude of morbidity and mortality of citizens at the hands of law enforcement. We used hospital outpatient and inpatient databases to conduct a retrospective analysis of legal interventions in Illinois between 2010 and 2015. We calculated ...


Occupational amputations in Illinois 2000-2007: BLS vs. data linkage of trauma registry, hospital discharge, workers compensation databases and OSHA citations.

Lee Friedman, Linda Forst et 3 al.

Feb 24, 2012 in Injury
Workplace amputation is a widespread, disabling, costly, and preventable public health problem. Thousands of occupational amputations occur each year, clustering in particular economic sectors, workplaces, and demographic groups such as young workers, Hispanics, and immigrants. To identify and describe work related amputations amongst Illinois residents that occur within Illinois as reported in th...
