... para aislar los componentes epidemicoe en las series de tiempode la mortalidad. SUMMARY Birth rates, marriage rates, and death rates computed on a monthlybasishave exhibited relatively stable seasonal patterns over a period of years. Elimination of these seasonal fluctuations facilitates...

...David A. Lam; Jeffrey A. Miron; Ann Riley Abstract This paper develops a model of seasonal fluctuations in fecundability, conceptions, and births. We begin with a model of individual fecundability that combines behavioral and biological components, with particular attention to the roles of coital...

... suggestions of Nerlove et al. (1979). This results in final models that contain significant second-order autoregressive components, as well as seasonal moving-average components, for both series. In addition, some evidence is found in the birth rate series for weekly periodicities. These findings imply...

In other words, reducing the standard deviation of the seasonal component of consumption by 10 % would have equivalent...

... study. Demographic time series are generally nonstationary, have strong seasonal components, and are se- rially dependent-thus violating many of the assumptions necessary to employ classical statistical tests (Box and Tiao, 1975). With econometric techniques, it is possible to account more adequately...

The nearly universal decline of seasonality in developed countries over the last century suggests that a broad...

... to measure such changes is with sample surveys which are generally too expensive to be feasible. Fortunately most places have very few seasonal units, and for those that do, the seasonal component often remains fairly stable over time. The development of inexpensive, effective indicators of sea- sonal usage...

This means that we identify the effects of temperature entirely on the ba- sis of its nonseasonal component. The seasonal...

.... On this basis, one would expect to find that, as m increased, the reduction pro- duced by absence for x months of the year would decrease, since time to conception would be a smaller component, relatively, of the birth interval. However, this notion is not always borne out when fecundabil- ity is seasonal...

In the last few years, knowledge about the seasonality of conception has been widely developed through individual data obtained by noninvasive techniques, which can deter- mine whether a woman is fecund or subfecund (see Ellison 1997...
