To define the aggregate quantity index of primary inputs used in the Domar
found that 52 pc of the women participating in the mind/body program for Infertility became pregnant compared with 20 pc of the control group participants, a statistically significant difference.
, "some aspect of the interventions affected participants' fertility"--a factor that should be taken into consideration in the treatment of infertile couples, she said.
These are the usual Domar
weights that take account of the input-output relationships among industries.
Bien podria referiros la accion heroica de un San Francisco, que se revolcaba desnudo entre la nieve y el hielo para apagar por este medio los incendios molestos de la carne; tambien podria contaros el valor de un San Benito, quien sintiendose combatido de la concupi-scencia, se arrojo por las espinas y abrojos hasta salir lastimado y todo ensangrentado, para domar

, a Boston-based fertility expert.
has demonstrated during the 17 years she and her colleagues have offered a program combining mind/body and cognitive-behavioral techniques to women with infertility.
We lack a measure of services industries output that excludes intraindustry transactions, so we do not use Domar
weights in Tables 1 and 2.
The correct aggregation would use gross output rather than value added weights (see Domar
, 1961) and so the calculations above should only be seen as illustrative of the importance of industries comparing across the two countries.
