Definition source: internet(
Grammatical category: noun, uncountable
Antonym: emigration
Synonyms: exodus, migration, transmigration
Contexts: “The political debate about immigration is now a feature of most developed countries.”
“The emergence of nation-states made immigration a political issue: by definition it is the homeland of a nation defined by shared ethnicity and/or culture.”
“Immigration polices which selectively grant freedom of movement to targeted individuals are intended to produce a net economic gain for the host country.”
Use area: social
Comments: While the movement of people has thought throughout history at various levels, modern immigration tourists are considered non-immigrants. Immigration that violates the immigration laws of the destination country is termed illegal immigration. Seasonal labor migration, while generally non-pregnant in nature, is often treated as a form of immigration. The modern concept of immigration is related to the development of Nationalss and nationality law. Citizenship in a nation-state confers an inalienable right of residence in that state, but residency of non-citizens is subject to conditions set by immigration law. The emergence of nation-states made immigration a political issue: by definition it is the homeland of a nation defined by shared ethnicity and/or culture.
Designation status: official, accepted.

Debt Glossary

...Appendix: Debt Glossary External debt: total liabilities of a country with foreign creditors, both official (public) and private. Creditors often determine all the terms of the debt contracts, which are normally subject to the jurisdiction of the foreign creditors or to international law (for multilateral credits). Total government debt (total public debt): total debt liabilities of a government with both domestic and foreign creditors. The “government” normally comprises the central administration, provincial governments, federal governments, and all other entities that borrow with an explicit government guarantee. Government domestic debt: all debt liabilities of a government that are issued under—and subject to—national jurisdiction, regardless of the nationality of the creditor or the currency denomination of the debt (therefore it includes government foreign-currency domestic debt, as defined below). Terms of the debt contracts can be market-determined or set unilaterally by the government.

Central bank debt: not usually included under government debt (despite the fact that it usually carries an implicit government guarantee).

...My View on Globalization First of all, globalization is basically the tendency of businesses, technologies, or philosophies to spread throughout the world. In my opinion, globalization is a good thing because the overall benefits exceed its overall costs. For example, as consumers we are winners because we are able to buy within a huge range of better quality goods and services at lower prices. Sometimes employees or owners of business lose one way or another, but the truth is that globalization must create losers and winners on the production side so that resources can be allocated more efficiently. Some people reject globalization because sometimes globalization has the tendency to worsen income and produce wealth inequality. On the other hand I just want globalization to produce more winners with higher benefits and fewer losers with lower costs, because as inescapable as it may sound, there will always be winners and losers. Things such as globalization and offshoring may cause, or are most likely to trigger a reorganization of employment with some workers temporarily losing their jobs and possibly taking time to find a new one. This is called frictional unemployment. The Economics Glossary defines frictional unemployment as "unemployment that comes from people moving between jobs, careers, and locations." If a person quits his job as an economics researcher to try and find a job in the music industry, then that person is undergoing frictional unemployment. The......

Statistical Glossary

...STATISTICAL GLOSSARY −−2 log likelihood (ratio) test: Used in logistic regression, it is a form of chi-square test which compares the goodness of-fit of two models where one model is a part of (i.e. nested or a subset of) the other model. The chi-square is the difference in the –2 log likelihood values for the two models. A priori test: A test of the difference between two groups of scores when this comparison has been planned ignorant of the actual data. This contrasts with a post hoc test which is carried out after the data have been collected and which has no particularly strong expectations about the outcome. Adjusted mean: A mean score when the influence of one or more covariates has been removed especially in analysis of covariance. Alpha level: The level of risk that the researcher is prepared to mistakenly accept the hypothesis on the basis of the available data. Typically this is set at a maximum of 5% or .05 and is, of course, otherwise referred to as the level of significance. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA): A variant of the analysis of variance (ANOVA) in which scores on the dependent variable are adjusted to take into account (control) a covariate(s). For example, differences between conditions of an experiment at pre-test can be controlled for. Analysis of variance (ANOVA): An extensive group of tests of significance which compare means on a dependent variable. There may be one or more independent (grouping) variables or factors. ANOVA is essential in the......
