This dataset is a retrospective study of de-identified electronic-medical record data of transgender and gender-diverse (TGD; i.e. those whose gender identity does not align with their sex assigned at birth) adults 18 years and older who receive gender-affirming care within the University of Utah healthcare system. Gender-affirming care includes gender-affirming hormone therapy (i.e. estrogen- or testosterone-based medications) and gender-affirming surgeries. The goal of creating this dataset is to contribute to the growing literature needed about the TGD population in order to facilitate public health efforts to address health disparities as well as answer clinically-impactful questions.
The purpose of this derived dataset was to analyze menstrual cycle lengths in relation to lunar calendar. This datafile of start and end date of 3324 menstrual cycles of 581 women is part of a combined dataset of three cohorts of heterosexually active women who received instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System (CrM) through centres across the United States and Canada. The CrM has standardised protocols for teaching women how to observe, record, and interpret daily vaginal discharge from bleeding and cervical fluid on a daily diary, called a CrM chart, and to use these standardised observations to identify the estimated time of ovulation and days when intercourse is likely to result in pregnancy. The cohorts included: "Creighton Model Effectiveness, Intentions, and Behaviours Assessment" (CEIBA) (2009–2013), a prospective cohort of women without known subfertility, aimed to evaluate and classify pregnancy rates and pregnancy intentions during use of the CrM; "Creighton Model MultiCenter Fecundability Study" (CMFS) (1990–1996), a retrospective cohort of presumably fertile and subfertile women using CrM, aimed to assess the relationship between vulvar mucus observations and the day and cycle-specific probabilities of conception; and "Time to Pregnancy in Normal Fertility" (TTP) (2003–2006), a parallel-randomised trial, which aimed to assess the impact of CrM use on time to pregnancy in couples of proven fertility trying to conceive. Each of the cohorts aimed to include heterosexually active couples with normal fecundity. Eligibility criteria were assessed by women's responses to the CrM general intake form and/or a screening questionnaire. Eligibility requirements in the original studies included women, age 18–40 years old (upper limit of 35 years for TTP), not pregnant at entry, having regular menstrual bleeding, and not breast feeding (CMFS and TTP), or if breast feeding, not doing so exclusively (CEIBA). Recent users of oral contraceptives had to have at least one menstrual bleed (CEIBA) or two menstrual bleeds (TTP) since stopping the oral contraceptives; however, for CMFS there was no restriction for time since discontinuing oral contraceptives. All studies also required normal menstrual patterns since last use of depo-medroxy-progesterone acetate or a hormonal intra-uterine device.
The dataset was collected in the process of carrying out a research on the effects of photochemical aging and interactions with secondary organic aerosols on cellular toxicity of combustion particles between the year 2021 to 2022
This file contains experimental data from the Ph.D. thesis “Mechanisms Governing Ash Aerosol Formation and Deposition during Solid Fuel Combustion” at the University of Utah. The data include particle sizes, weights, and compositions of ash aerosols and deposits formed in the combustion of a range of fossil and biomass solid fuels under a wide range of conditions. Operation pressure, fuel composition and combustor scale are changed across these tests. These experimental data can provide information and inputs for further studies, such as modeling the ash deposition process, in the future.
Research background: Concern about global warming has called for new combustion systems to be used in order to reduce CO2 emissions from coal-fired power generation. Pressurized oxy-coal combustion coupled with carbon capture and storage as well as co-firing biomass with coal are gaining more interest in building new power plants and retrofitting existing plants. The combustion conditions of these systems could be significantly changed and thus affect the ash formation and deposition. The experimental work of this thesis consists of combustion tests at various scales and conditions, namely, on a 100 kWth rated oxy-fuel combustor (OFC), a 300 kWth rated entrained flow pressurized reactor (EFPR), a 1.5 MWth rated horizontal multifuel combustor (L1500) and a 500 MWe full-size utility boiler (Hunter). The solid fuels involved in these tests include pulverized coal, torrefied wood, blend fuels of the coal and wood, and coal with K/Cl/S additives. In each test, iso-kinetically sampled ash aerosols are analyzed in terms of particle size distributions and size-segregated compositions. Ash deposition rates are measured using a surface-temperature-controlled probe which simulates the deposition process on superheater tubes.
This dataset comprises MODTRAN radiative transfer simulations used to determine scene-specific enhancement spectra for matched filter retrieval of CH4 and CO2 concentrations from imaging spectroscopy data. An example implementation to generate a enhancement spectrum is also included.
This SAS program can be used to calculate Grocery Purchase Quality Index-2016 (GPQI-2016) total and component scores from food purchase data (dollars and cents) that have been summarized into the 29 categories of the USDA Food Plans. The code can be adapted to calculate GPQI-2016 scores for data that use a smaller number of categories.
