Consumer price differences

The degree of price difference on goods and services among Texas metropolitan areas has increased over time, researchers wrote in a paper featured on the Dallas Fed Economic Letter, according to a paper co-authored by a UT Arlington associate professor in the College of Business. The study also showed that price varied among different goods and services among eight metropolitan cities surveyed. Finally, it showed Dallas was the most expensive city in the state. C.Y. Choi, UT Arlington associate professor of economics, co-wrote the paper.

A better method

A UT Arlington study in a recent edition of Analytica Chimica Acta shows that a new, more sensitive method of detecting trace amounts of estrogen in small samples could improve research into cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions, LabMedica.com reported. The technique, which was developed by UT Arlington scientists and colleagues from Palacký University in the Czech Republic, uses chromatography instrumentation and mass spectrometry to detect trace amounts of the hormone at less than 10 parts per trillion in a 100 microliter sample – equal to a drop of water in 20 Olympic-size swimming pools.
