Members of the community contribute to survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest by contacting emergency medical services and performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) prior to the arrival of an ambulance. In Australia there is a paucity of information of the extent that community members...
Subject: Kurtosis
An increase in kurtosis is achieved through the location- and scale-free movement of probability mass from the “shoulders” of a distribution into its centre and tails. We introduce a coherent structure of ordering and measures, requiring no symmetry assumption, that represent different...

We first describe a class of quantile-based kurtosis orderings on symmetric distributions that use density matching to match the scales of distributions before kurtosis comparisons are made. We then use the orderings to give a meaningful comparison of the kurtosis properties of the Cauchy and...
We critically review the development of the concept of kurtosis. We conclude that it is best to define kurtosis vaguely as the location- and scale-free movement of probability mass from the shoulders of a distribution into its center and tails and to recognize that it can be formalized in many ways...

Subject: Bowel cancer
Few educational campaigns have focused on bowel cancer, though studies have indicated that members of the community need and want current information about relevant issues. In order to facilitate research in this area, reliable and valid measures of community attitudes are needed. Content validity...
Appropriate, factual information about cervical cancer, cervical screening and for strategies and educational resources to increasing client participation in cervical screening programs. Methods: Fifty-eight community health workers from throughout Queensland who were involved in providing...
Kurtosis, usually as measured by the standardised fourth central moment, has been examined on a number of occasions by observing the effect of contaminating the distribution, that is, mixing in another distribution. However, superficial treatment can lead, and indeed has led, to misunderstandings....
