By most indications, the U.S. university system is producing more PhDs than the market for research positions demands given current levels of funding for research, both by government and by the private sector. A major reason for this overproduction is that demand is based on the need to staff labs of faculty researchers with graduate students and postdocs, not upon demand for future researchers.

Researchers frequently use statistical models that incorporate social and demographic covariates to predict survival. Based on data from a bisocial survey in Taiwan, I explore the extent to which mortality prediction improves with the inclusion in such models of non-standard biological and clinical parameters; measures of physical performance; and global health ratings made by interviewers and physicians. Some surprising results emerge. Please Note: Remote Access to Brown Bags Live Streaming Video is now available for those who cannot attend the presentations.
