Water sector structure, size, and demographics

, : Water sector structure, size, and demographics. Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management 133(1): 60-66

Although the water sector (or water industry) is vital to the United States, national reporting systems do not include its economic or employment statistics. These would help policy makers and the public understand the strategic importance of the industry in terms of employment, revenues, and impact. To bridge this gap, the paper explains the water sector's structure, size, and demographic characteristics. The water sector's revenues are about 1% of gross domestic product.

We have shown previously that caspases were specifically involved in the differentiation of peripheral blood monocytes into macrophages while not required for monocyte differentiation into dendritic cells. To identify caspase targets in monocytes...

To analyse regional variations in extracellular matrix components of adult rat temporomandibular joint discs, immunohistochemical techniques were used to examine the localization of two small dermatan-sulphate proteoglycans, biglycan and decorin,...
