Across villages, GVFs dealt with different access to labour-saving technology, decision-making over Union policies, and quotas for remunerative contracts.
Each GVF had three elected representatives and an executive committee composed of eight women (seven of whom were from Leo) chaired the Union.
This was particularly the case among GVF representatives, who came together across villages during Union assemblies, learned from each other and forged friendships.
The second method relies on the Census Bureau's GVF model, which produces generalized variance parameters for selected demographic groups by income, program participation and employment status (U.S.
It is, however, more difficult to calculate than the GVF method.
Equations (6) and (7) were used to estimate defts under GVF and replicate weights, respectively.
The standard errors of the estimates for any health insurance coverage were 0.126 for SRS, 0.142 for GVF estimates, and 0.187 using replicate weights.
(6) As shown in Figure 1, under a SRS assumption or GVF method the percentage of Asians with any insurance (83.2%) is significantly different from those in the other race category (79.9%) at the 95% confidence level.
Estimates of the standard error are 0.151 under SRS, 0.170 under GVF, and 0.196 when replicate weights are used.
Across all 31 estimates the average GVF deft was 14% larger than under SRS assumptions and 69% larger using replicate weights.
Estimates of the standard error are 0.149 under SRS, 0.167 under GVF, and 0.168 when replicate weights are used.
