This chapter explores the dyadic relationship between headquarters and in terms of their perceptions of decision-making loci and associated organisational structure. By comparing the responses of parents of Greek Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) and their subsidiaries, we find evidence in favour of a perception gap in terms of decision-making betwe...

Real-time quantitative-PCR has been a priceless tool for gene expression analyses. The reaction, however, needs proper normalization with the use of housekeeping genes (HKGs), whose expression remains stable throughout the experimental conditions. Often, the combination of several genes is required for accurate normalization. Most importantly, ther...

This paper investigates the profile of the Greek bankrupt households and is the first to deal with the bankrupt households in Greece utilizing court data from the judicial decisions according to the newly established personal Bankruptcy Law 3869/2010. We compare the characteristics of the bankrupt households drawn from the court data with those of...
Article
We consider estimation and goodness–of–fit tests in GARCH models with innovations following a heavy–tailed and possibly asymmetric distribution. Although the method is fairly general and applies to GARCH models with arbitrary innovation distribution, we consider as special instances the stable Paretian, the variance gamma and the normal inverse Gau...
Article
Knowledge, research, and innovation are of crucial importance for the competitiveness of an economy and a recipe for economic development not only for developed and developing countries, but also for entities surviving a political abnormality, such as the Palestinian territories. As Palestinians are currently planning for their future viable state,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Household over-indebtedness has become one of the most crucial social problems of the current economic crisis in Greece. Unemployment and wage cuts have left many households with insufficient income to meet essential living expenses and debt repayments as they fall due. These external factors are largely beyond the power of the individual to contro...
Article
Unlabelled: The objectives of this autopsy-based audit of firearm-related fatalities were to acquire data to inform policy decisions and to assess the probability of the injured arriving alive at a hospital and receiving definitive care. Evaluated variables: Demographics; co-morbidities; location and intention of the injury; toxicology; types of...

This paper aims at revealing methodological issues referring to the definition and measurement of absolute poverty. The literature on poverty, both relative and absolute, is reviewed and a proposal is put forth for an approach of absolute poverty based on needs and the notion of the value of labour power. The paper presents the results of the appli...

The aim of this paper is to examine the factors that influence the increase of GNP in the Greek regions. The paper examins the effect thta six basic groups of variables have on the structure of GDP. Using factor analysis, the large number of variables decreases significantly, at the same ime the descriptive ability of the formulated models increase...
Article
In this article, we consider Crámer–von Mises type goodness-of-fit statistics for the Generalized Pareto law. The tests involve a certain transformation of the original observations, which, at least in the case of completely specified null distribution, may be viewed as transforming to uniformity and comparing the resulting moments of arbitrary pos...
Article
A method is proposed for the sample size calculation in the case of therapeutic equivalence of two pharmaceuticals, when the decision is based on post-treatment differences and the post-treatment values are dependent on the pretreatment ones. When the correlation coefficient is large (over 0.7), it is shown that sample size calculation (and the cor...

A general method is proposed for testing the fit to any member of the invari-ant under convolutions family of count models, parameterized by mean and variance. The test statistics, which are of the weighted L2-type, exploit the specific structure of the corresponding probability generating function. Their asymptotic null distribution is obtained, a...

Hb F levels in beta-thalassemia heterozygotes are usually less than 2%, but amongst 1,059 patients studied, 73 (7%) had Hb F levels above 2.5% (2.6-14.0%). To investigate factors that may influence the increase of Hb F levels in these heterozygotes, we characterized the beta-thalassemia mutations and their chromosomal background, gamma-globin gene...

Fever in patients with acute stroke is usually related to infectious complications. In some cases, a focus of infection cannot be identified, fever does not respond to empirical antibiotic treatment and is thought to be due to the central nervous system lesion. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and origin of fever in patients wit...

Chapter
The Hodges-Lehmann estimator (modified to take into account right censoring) can be used to estimate the treatment effect in the two-sample problem with right censoring under a shift or scale change model assumption. In this work we investigate, with the help of the bootstrap, the optimal choice of calibration parameters that yield a shift estimato...
Article
SUMMARY A generalized Hodges-Lehmann type estimator for the treatment effect in the two-sample problem with right censoring, is proposed based on an inverse-quantile-type idea using truncated versions of the Kaplan-Meier estimators over the subspace where they are consistent. Its strong consistency and asymptotic normality can be obtained, under no...

Full-text available
The estimation of the treatment effect in the two-sample problem with right censoring is of interest in survival analysis. In this article we consider both the location shift model and the scale change model. We establish the large-sample properties of a generalized Hodges-Lehmann type estimator. The strong consistency is established under the mini...
