Female labor participation in Iran: a structural model estimation, Article Journal of Economic Studies ; Volume 47, Issue 1 , 2020 , Pages 1-19 ; Rahmati, M ; Sharif University of Technology
Emerald Group Publishing Ltd 2020
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine why female labor force participation in Iran has been less than 20 percent. Design/methodology/approach: The authors estimate a structural dynamic matching model of female participation using individual panel data in Iran. The study incorporates many factors such as wage, child cost, education, spouse employment and job market search parameters. Findings: The study finds that gender discrimination in job finding has the biggest effect in reducing the rate of women's participation. If all market differences disappear, the female participation rate will increase by 12 percentage points to almost 27 percent, which is still much lower than that...
Evolution of costly signaling and partial cooperation, Article Scientific Reports ; Volume 9, Issue 1 , 2019 ; 20452322 (ISSN) ; Sharif University of Technology
Nature Publishing Group 2019
Two seemingly unrelated, but fundamental challenges in evolutionary theory, are the evolution of costly signals and costly cooperative traits, both expected to reduce an individual’s fitness and diminish by natural selection. Here, by considering a well mixed population of individuals who produce signals and decide on their strategies in a game they play, based on the signals, we show that costly signals and costly cooperative strategies can co-evolve as a result of internal dynamics of the system. Costly signals evolve, despite their apparent cost, due to a favorable cooperative response they elicit. This favorable strategic response can be quantified in a fitness term which governs the...
Drift-diffusion explains response variability and capacity for tracking objects, Article Scientific Reports ; Volume 9, Issue 1 , 2019 ; 20452322 (ISSN) ; Azarnoush, H ; Towhidkhah, F ; Gohari, A ; Ghazizadeh, A ; Sharif University of Technology

Being able to track objects that surround us is key for planning actions in dynamic environments. However, rigorous cognitive models for tracking of one or more objects are currently lacking. In this study, we asked human subjects to judge the time to contact (TTC) a finish line for one or two objects that became invisible shortly after moving. We showed that the pattern of subject responses had an error variance best explained by an inverse Gaussian distribution and consistent with the output of a biased drift-diffusion model. Furthermore, we demonstrated that the pattern of errors made when tracking two objects showed a level of dependence that was consistent with subjects using a single...
Exploring stakeholders and their requirements in the process of home hemodialysis: A literature review, Article Seminars in Dialysis ; 2021 ; 08940959 (ISSN) ; Pintelon, L ; Martin, H ; Khan, R. A ; Sharif University of Technology
John Wiley and Sons Inc 2021
Providing home hemodialysis (HHD) therapy is a complex process that not only requires the use of a complex technology but also involves a diverse group of stakeholders, and each stakeholder has their requirements and may not share a common interest. Bringing them together will require the alignment of their interests. A process management perspective can help to accomplish the alignment of their interests. To align their interests, it is crucial to identify interest groups and understand their interests. The main objective of this paper is to identify the stakeholders and represents their interests as a list of requirements in the HHD process. An extensive literature review has been carried...
Relationship between Fertility and Female Labor Participation in Iran, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Keshavarz Haddad, Gholamreza
Despite the fact that total fertility rate has a drastic decrease from 6.6 in 1980 to 1.8 childeren in 2008 and their education was highly growing in the last two decades, their participation in labor market is stillrelatively low(with maximum rate of 17.5 in 2007). Making use of the Iranian Household Expenditure and Income Survey(HEIS) and yearly labor market surveys (1984-2009), we intend to investigate the interaction between fertility(FER) and female labor participation(FLP) in Iran, for both the population with ages of 10-64 and 18-30. We use simultaneousequations by GMM to estimate the system of equation. Our findings show that the sign of FER’s determinants are as expected, but FLP...

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) are inflammatory neuropathies with different clinical courses but similar underlying mechanisms. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) might affect pathogenesis of these conditions. In the current project, we have selected HULC, PVT1, MEG3, SPRY4-IT1, LINC-ROR and DSCAM-AS1 lncRNAs to appraise their transcript levels in the circulation of CIDP and GBS cases versus controls. Expression of HULC was higher in CIDP patients compared with healthy persons (Ratio of mean expression (RME) = 7.62, SE = 0.72, P < 0.001). While expression of this lncRNA was not different between female CIDP cases and female...
Woman-Headed Household and Household Welfare An Emprical Study for Iran
Sharif University of Technology
This research aimed to investigate the relationship between household poverty and the gender of the head in the Iranian households. The self-reported gender of the head of household (FHH), underestimates the rate of poverty in female- head households (FHH). The self-reported gender of the head of household considers, conventionally, a family as male-head, even if the man of the family is incapable of making money. In much of these families the wife is the sole income holder even though she is not recognized as the head. In this study, a definition for household headship is introduced, which considers head of household the one who provides more than 50% of household income. Using household’s...
Individual Married Female Labor Supply: An Application of Parametric & Non-Parametric Econometric Analysis, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Keshavarz Haddad, Gholamreza
Iranian female participation rate in the labor market of Iran in the recent decade shows a raising trend which amounted from 8% in 1999 to 18% in 2005.

Equity or equality? Which approach brings more satisfaction in a kidney-exchange chain?, Article Journal of Personalized Medicine ; Volume 11, Issue 12 , 2021 ; 20754426 (ISSN) ; Najafi, M ; Cheungpasitporn, W ; Thongprayoon, C ; Fathi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
In United States (U.S.), government-funded organizations, such as NLDAC, reimburse travel and subsistence expenses incurred during living-organ donation process. However, in Iran, there is a non-governmental organization called Iranian Kidney Foundation (IKF) that funds the direct and indirect costs of donors through charitable donations and contributions from participants in the exchange program. In this article, for countries outside the U.S. that currently use an equality approach, we propose a potential new compensation-apportionment approach (equitable approach) for kidney-exchange chains and compare it with the currently available system (equality approach) in terms of the...

Anemia is a globally widespread condition in women and is associated with reduced economic productivity and increased mortality worldwide. Here we map annual 2000–2018 geospatial estimates of anemia prevalence in women of reproductive age (15–49 years) across 82 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), stratify anemia by severity and aggregate results to policy-relevant administrative and national levels. Additionally, we provide subnational disparity analyses to provide a comprehensive overview of anemia prevalence inequalities within these countries and predict progress toward the World Health Organization’s Global Nutrition Target (WHO GNT) to reduce anemia by half by 2030. Our results...
