Book
This is the sixth edition of a popular textbook on multivariate analysis. Well-regarded for its practical and accessible approach, with excellent examples and good guidance on computing, the book is particularly popular for teaching outside statistics, i.e. in epidemiology, social science, business, etc. The sixth edition has been updated with a ne...

[This paper is part of the Focused Collection on Quantitative Methods in PER: A Critical Examination.] Physics education researchers (PER) commonly use complete-case analysis to address missing data. For complete-case analysis, researchers discard all data from any student who is missing any data. Despite its frequent use, no PER article we reviewe...
Article
Purpose: This study assessed the effectiveness of the HIV/sexually transmitted infection/pregnancy prevention program, It's Your Game: Keep It Real (IYG). Methods: IYG was implemented by classroom teachers in 24 urban middle schools from 2012 to 2015. Using a quasi-experimental design, each year we surveyed ninth-grade students in 10 high school...

Physics education researchers (PER) commonly use complete-case analysis to address missing data. For complete-case analysis, researchers discard all data from any student who is missing any data. Despite its frequent use, no PER article we reviewed that used complete-case analysis provided evidence that the analyzed data met the assumptions necessa...
Article
Leptothrix ochracea is known for producing large volumes of iron oxyhydroxide sheaths that alter wetland biogeochemistry. For over a century, these delicate structures have fascinated microbiologists and geoscientists. Because L. ochracea still resists long-term in vitro culture, the debate regarding its metabolic classification dates back to 1885....
Article

Purpose: Adolescent males are less likely to receive health care and have lower levels of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) knowledge than adolescent females. The purpose of this study was to determine if a school-based structural intervention focused on school nurses increases receipt of condoms and SRH information among male students. Method...
Article
This analysis assessed patterns of sexual experience, the order in which behaviors were initiated, and associated factors, among Latino and African American ninth grade students (average age 15.2) who self-administered audio-computer-assisted surveys on netbooks in classes at 10 Los Angeles-area public high schools. Lifetime experiences with vagina...
Article
Background: For women, the order of penile insertion, condom use, and ejaculation by orifice during sexual events affects the probability of HIV transmission and design of HIV prevention methods. Methods: From October 2006 to June 2009, 431 women in Los Angeles and Baltimore in a rectal health study reported the sequence of penile insertion, con...
Article
Purpose: To evaluate a health systems intervention to increase adolescents' receipt of high-quality sexual and reproductive health care services. Methods: Quasi experimental design. Twelve high schools in a large public school district were matched into pairs. Within each pair, schools were assigned to condition so that no control school shared...
Conference Paper
Purpose: Oral, vaginal and anal sex are discrete behaviors that pose varying degrees of STD and/or pregnancy risk. Considering these behaviors separately has resulted in a splintered picture of adolescents' sexual risk. It is important to understand the co-occurrence of these behaviors to better inform prevention efforts. We sought to identify patt...
Article
We conducted an intervention to improve the implementation of a high school condom availability program, and evaluated its effect on students' awareness of the program and acquisition of condoms. Twelve public high schools in the Los Angeles, CA area participated, half each in the intervention and control conditions. Project staff facilitated inter...
Conference Paper
Depressive symptoms in early adolescence are associated with subsequent onset of health risk behaviors and negative school outcomes, including dropout. We used classification and regression tree (CART) analysis to identify cross-sectional relationships between depressive symptoms and demographic, family, neighborhood, school, and health variables,...
Article
Use of lubricant products is extremely common during receptive anal intercourse (RAI) yet has not been assessed as a risk for acquisition of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Between 2006 and 2008, a rectal health and behavior study was conducted in Baltimore and Los Angeles as part of the University of California, Los Angeles Microbicide Dev...
Article
The prognostic usefulness of the Fuhrman nuclear grading system has been questioned for chromophobe renal cell carcinoma due to its frequent nuclear and nucleolar pleomorphism. Chromophobe tumor grade, a novel 3-tier tumor grading system based on geographic nuclear crowding and anaplasia, was recently reported to be superior to the Fuhrman system....
Conference Paper
Conflicting answers to survey questions, and inconsistent responses to identical repeated questions such as gender, exist in longitudinal self-report surveys. Deterministic data editing techniques correct these errors but subsequent analysis assumes the edit is correct and does not allow for edit error. We propose models to perform multiple edit in...
Article
Full-text available
Background Access to STD screening and HIV testing are important components of sexual and reproductive health care for adolescents. However, few youth have ever had an STD or HIV test, suggesting a need for new approaches to linking adolescents to care. Project Connect is an 8 year, quasi-experimental study of a multi-level intervention to prevent...
Article
Full-text available
Background Adolescent males tend to have lower levels of knowledge about sexual and reproductive health (SRH), and access health care less frequently than adolescent females. Innovative strategies are needed to reach males with accurate information and resources regarding their SRH needs. Such strategies may improve adolescent males' access to SRH...
Article
Assess behavior change of recently HIV-infected men who have sex with men (MSM). From 2002 to 2006, 193 recently HIV-infected MSM in the Southern California Acute Infection and Early Disease Research Program were interviewed every 3 months. Changes in HIV status of partners, recent unprotected anal intercourse (UAI), drug use, use of antiretroviral...

The objective of this study is to evaluate differences in patient presentation and short- and long-term outcomes between patients dichotomized by the level of preoperative s-creatinine (s-crea) without renal failure and to use EuroSCORE (ES) risk stratification for validating differences and for predictive purposes. A thousand consecutive cardiac s...
Article
Studies suggest human immunodeficiency virus-positive (HIV+) patients have an increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD), yet little is known about the histopathology, severity, or distribution of lesions. The coronary arteries of 66 deceased AIDS patients and 19 HIV controls (age <55) were dissected and graded for percent luminal stenosis by...
