Data acquired from an online survey, conducted from 5-20 May 2020. This data aimed to evaluate psychological wellbeing among Greater Jakarta Area residents using DASS-21, where we implemented linear regression to estimate such score using sociodemographic data. We also addressed misconception regarding COVID-19 and estimate correct / incorrect responses using Poisson regression models. Finally, we confirm the presence of communities with different commuting tendency using a graph-based analysis.
The advance of the agrarian frontier constitutes Nicaragua’s biggest environmental challenge as the major cause of complex processes of ecosystems degradation. I use the ESA-CCI land cover maps dataset and the UNCCD land cover classes (UNCCD-LC) to estimate its geospatial trend in terms of land cover changes at the country-level and the areas encompassing Bosawas and Río San Juan biosphere reserves from 1992 to 2015.
The ESA-CCI land cover maps generated at 300 m spatial resolution on an annual basis from 1992 to 2015 in TIF format (raster layers) were collected from the official website of the ESA-CCI (https://www.esa-landcover-cci.org/). The coordinate reference system of the maps is a geographic coordinate system based on the World Geodetic System 84 (WGS84) reference ellipsoid. The processing of the geospatial data was carried out using QGIS. The 36 ESA-CCI land cover classes (ESA-CCI-LC) were re-classified to the 7 UNCCD-LC (i.e., tree-covered, grassland, cropland, wetland, artificial, other land, and water body). The global-level maps were clipped to the country-level (Nicaragua) using the vector layers in SHP format collected from the official website of GADM (https://gadm.org/), and at the biosphere reserve-level (Bosawas y Río San Juan) using the vector layers in SHP format collected from the official website of Protected Planet (https://www.protectedplanet.net/). A pixel count approach was used to estimate each UNCCD-LC area. STATA was used to calculate UNCCD-LC area estimates in squared kilometers, each pixel counting for 300 m x 300 m which is the ESA-CCI land cover maps spatial resolution.
At the country-level, the analysis covered 124,552.2 km2. The total area might include land and water bodies. At the biosphere reserve-level, the analysis covered 19,548.2 km2 for Bosawas and 17,524.9 km2 for Río San Juan. In Basawas biosphere reserve, 41% (8,030.3 km2) of the total area belongs to core areas, whereas 69% (11,548.9 km2) to the buffer zone. In Río San Juan biosphere reserve, 48% (7,525.3 km2) of the total area belongs to core areas, whereas 52% (10,170.2 km2) to the buffer zone. The research finds that Nicaragua’s agrarian frontier has shown a remarkably strong advance during the last two decades, particularly from 1995 to 2007. The underlying land transition process has mainly implied the transformation of tree-covered into cropland or grassland areas. This process has also penetrated legally designated protected areas such as Bosawas and Río San Juan biosphere reserves.
Objective to investigate the role of social and laboral stress in the functionality and adaptability of adults screened as ADH(+) by the Adult ADHD Self report Scale in different professional settings.
Design. We conducted an online survey with convenience sampling about economic and academic performances (dysfunctionality) and self-perception of health problems and work-related subjective suffering (maladaptation), following a screening for ADHD using Adult Self Report Scale (ASRS). The subjects were naïve about the aim of this assessment. Among analyses, we realized a random stratified subsampling to mitigate the bias by convenience sampling.
Main Findings. There were 2173 participants, of which 28.06% were ADH(+). Even regarding only subjects with extreme ASRS scores (2.5), ADH(+) and (-) groups did not shown difference in functionality. We grouped subjects by professional career. The highest ADH(+) prevalence was found in publicity, where almost no difference in subjective suffering between the groups was observed.
Conclusions. High ADH(+) prevalence can be due convenience recruitment. Our results indicate that ADH(+) people can show equivalent functionality and adaptability than ADH(-) ones when they live in their preferred labor/social settings, arguing that dysfunctionality and mental suffering in adult ADHD could be secondary to social stress.
Background: Aging and retirement are a passaging to a new course of life for veterans. Population aging has made significant changes in the composition of families and it affects the health of the family members. The role of army grandparents in relationships with their adult children is important in providing for their living needs and the need for research into grandparent-adult children interactions during retirement. There was no Iranian version of an instrument to measure this interaction. Therefore, the study was aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Persian version of the Perceived Parenting Roles Inventory (PPRI-2019). Methods. The process of translating was conducted based on WHO’s guidance of instruments translation and adaptation. A total of 251 grandparents were randomly selected from Iranian Veterans Association. The PPRI and demographic questionnaire were used to gather data at the end of 2019. The scale structure was evaluated by using confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Internal consistency was assessed by Cronbach’s alpha and the optimal cut-off points were obtained by calculating the area under the curve (ROC). Data were analyzed using IBM-SPSS version 26 and AMOS version 24
Results: The construct validity of PPRI based on CFA showed that the two subscales explained a total of 73.017 % of the variance. The PPRI scale demonstrated excellent reliability and the Cronbach’s alpha obtained 0.792 for the entire scale (p< 0.000). The optimal cut-off point of PPRI was 19.50, with a sensitivity of 100%, a 1-specificity of 0.127. Conclusions: Based on the results, the Persian version of PPRI is a valid and reliable tool that can be utilized by other researchers to measure perceived parenting roles. But further investigations are suggested.
