Contributors: Montira Inkochasan, John Hetherington
... Tracking surveys serve as tools to inform programming by routinely collecting data from cross-sections of populations at risk for HIV/AIDS and other adverse health outcomes. This survey among injecting drug users (IDUs) aimed to: 1) identify and describe segments of the population in terms of needle sharing at last injection; 2) understand the needle sharing behaviors of IDUs; 3) explore the sexual behaviors and condom use of IDUs; and 4) apply study findings to interventions designed for reducing the risk of HIV transmission from needle sharing among IDUs. Respondent-Driven Sampling (RDS) was used to collect data among 339 IDUs aged 15 to 45 who live or work in urban areas in Bangkok, Muang Chiang Mai District, and Muang Chiang Rai District. A screening questionnaire and main questionnaire served as survey tools. The questionnaire collected information on background characteristics, opinions about needle-sharing practices, personal drug use and sharing practices, beliefs and knowledge about HIV infection, sexual practices and condom use, and exposure to PSI products and services. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify significant factors associated with needle sharing. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to permit monitoring of project indicators.
Replication data for: Setting the Agenda: Responsible Party Government in the US House of Representatives

... Scholars of the U.S. House disagree over the importance of political parties in organizing the legislative process. On the one hand, non-partisan theories stress how congressional organization serves members' non-partisan goals. On the other hand, partisan theories argue that the House is organized to serve the collective interests of the majority party. This book advances a partisan theory and presents a series of empirical tests of that theory's predictions (pitted against others). The evidence demonstrates that the majority party seizes agenda control at nearly every stage of the legislative process in order to prevent bills that the party dislikes from reaching the floor.
