Statistical Analysis Of Reports On Domestic Violence In Ghana

ABSTRACT The incidence of the print and electronic media reports on violence and abuse in the domestic setting heightened the interest for this study and has therefore served as a major source of motivation for this research work. The work seeks to investigate the causes of domestic violence vis-à-vis the consequences of such acts. The major findings indicated that domestic violence in Ghana can best be described as violence against women and children. It was also discovered th...

Estimation Techniques In Generalized Linear Mixed Models With Application To Disease Impact Modelling

ABSTRACT This study applies the theory of Generalised linear Mixed Models (GLMMs) to survey data on disease impact in Ghana. It determines the variables that are responsible for making dependent members of households feel the impact of illness and/or death for three identified types of households. It assesses four models in terms of these variables generated using the Maximum Mean PseudoLikelihood (MMPL) and the Residual Mean Pseudo-Likelihood (RMPL) techniques in SAS. For all fo...

STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF FEMALE STUDENTS' ENROLMENT AT THE JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVELS IN NIGERIA

This study is concerned with the female enrolment at the junior secondary school levels in Nigeria. In writing this project, the approach has been todetermine the trend in female enrolment at the junior secondary school level by the geo - political zones. This research work is organized into five chapters. The first chapter deals with the introduction of the study. In this chapter, the background information is provided, objective of the study is outlined and the sign...

SOME NEW ENCRYPTION TECHNIQUES USING FIREWALLS AND RANDOM NUMBER GENERA TORS

ln this work, the researchers consider the concept of Information Security by the application of firewall and encryption techniques. Also, the problem of explicitly exposing infonnation in transit is discussed. We developed several algorithms. Among the algorithms are those of random sequence and non-arithmetic sequence using modified generators for the problem to secure information that may pass through intermediate computers linked in the Internet. Some of these alg...

SOLUTION OF LINEAR ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS BY CRAMER'S RULE METHOD USING PASCAL PROGRAMMING

The purpose of this work is not to present a collection of routines that might appear in a professional software library; rather, the intention is to introduce a method of solving linear algebraic equations using Pascal Programming. This dissertation solves linear algebraic equations by Cramer's rule method using Pascal Programming. The basis for this method of solution was obtained from the knowledge of numerical method, such a method lies within the discip...

DEVELOPMENT OF STATISTICAL PROGRAM FOR DISCRIMINANT ANALYSIS FOR MIXED VARIABLES USING R-CODE

DEVELOPMENT OF STATISTICAL PROGRAM FOR DISCRIMINANT ANALYSIS FOR MIXED VARIABLES USING R-CODE, By Iwuagwu, Chukwuma E. Ibegbulem, Zebulon O. Nwosu, Obinna M. Ekwuribe, Celestine.Department of Statistics, Abia State Polytechnic, Aba, Abia State.AbstractDiscriminant analysis is a statistical technique that tried to predict on the bases of one or more independent variables. Whether an individual or other objects can be placed into a particular category of a categorical dependent variables. This...

PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF INTERNAL SORTING ALGORITHMS

Internal sorting algorithms constitute a class of util ity programs that are widely used in performing routine computing operations . This thesis examines the t heory and structu res of these algorithms and ill ustrates their basic principles with flowcharts and tabular presentations. PASCAL codes were also developed and implemented for the methods.

A STUDY OF ITERATIVE METHODS IN OPTIMIZATION

ABSTRACT Optimization techniques are called into play everyday in decision making processes involving resource allocation in almost every discipline. However, the development and implementation of algorithm for solving optimization problems are fraught with many difficulties and frustrations. The aim of this thesis has been to examine and identify some of the problems associated with the development and implementation of a class of optimization algorithms and to develop a means of improv...

COMPARING STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE IN EXAMINATIONS AT THE ST. JOSEPH SENIOR HIGH SECONDARY/TECHNICAL SCHOOL

ABSTRACT My motivation to embark on this project work was triggered by the academic performance of the students in St. Joseph Senior High Secondary/Technical. The main objectives of this study were to compare the performance of male and female students, use principal components to determine indices for ranking the students in descending order. The Data used in the analysis were sourced from the students’ of St. Joseph Senior High Secondary/Technical third term terminal examin...
