Fully eighteen of these Muslim-majority places saw TFRS fall by three or more over those 30 years--with nine of them by four births per woman or mores In Oman, TFRS plummeted by an astonishing 5.
Based on UNPD'S estimates and projections of fertility patterns for all countries and territories for the entirety of the post-war era (1950 to 2010), it isolates the "top ten" fertility declines, as measured by both absolute and proportional change in TFRS, registered over any 20-year period.
When ranking the "top ten" historical fertility declines during any 20-year period by country in terms of proportional rather than absolute drops in TFRS, "only" four of the top ten fertility drops to date have occurred in Muslim-majority countries--and "only" two of the top four were Muslim-majority areas (Iran and the Maldives islands) What may be especially noteworthy here, nonetheless, is that places like Kuwait, Oman, and Iran all effected fertility declines of over two-thirds in just 20 years--and that this pace of change exceeded the tempo of fertility decline in almost all of the Pacific Rim societies; the ERIC economies; and the other non-Muslim emerging market economies.
32) These adjustments mainly affected general provisions, and were between 27 and 49 percent of the individual banks' general provisions prior to the shift to NZ TFRS (data taken from banks' general disclosure statements for the affected quarter).
While revised in 2004 to be consistent with TFRS, the statistical regulatory buffer mitigated the effect of the shift to an incurred loss model under TFRS.
Insights on implementation and application difficulties with issues such as FASB Interpretation 48 (FIN 48), XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language), TFRS
(International Financial Reporting Standards), risk assessment, and current tax changes will dramatically enhance students' understanding of applying accounting to real companies.
