  1. 1. Extraordinary or Ordinary at Best? - An Empirical Study on the Application of Machine Learning Tools for Proxy Means Tests in Poverty Targeting

    D-uppsats, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Författare :Nicolas Leicht; Colja Maser; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Poverty targeting; Proxy means tests; Machine learning; Household surveys;

    Sammanfattning : Proxy means tests are a widely used approach in development programs where the beneficiaries need to be determined through targeting. These tests apply a standard econometric method, ordinary least squares, to predict consumption levels using household characteristics as input variables. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Aerosol Input and Snow Accumulation Rates on the Northern Greenland Ice Sheet : Reconstructed by means of Continuous Flow Analysis (CFA) of 6 shallow firn cores

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Patrick Stephan Zens; [2018]
    Nyckelord :continuous flow analysis; Greenland; shallow firn core; aerosol; snow accumulation; glaciochemistry; kontinuerlig flödesanalys; Grönland; grunda firnkärnor; aerosol; snöackumulering; glaciokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Ice, firn and snow cores from the Greenland ice sheet offer a unique opportunity to reconstruct past climate conditions. These can be analyzed with continuous flow analysis (CFA) in order to acquire proxy information about ancient atmospheric aerosol concentrations, snow accumulation rates or temperature variations, atmospheric composition, solar activity as well as volcanism and biological activity.
