Deficiency

The amount by which a project's cash flow is not adequate to meet debt service.

Deficiency

1. The amount by which cash flow falls short of debt service. For example, if a company has $300,000 in current liabilities and only $250,000 in cash flow for a given year, its deficiency is $50,000.

2. In taxation, the amount by which one's tax liability exceeds what the individual person or organization reported. For example, if the IRS disallows certain deductions that the taxpayer applied, he/she will owe more in taxes than he/she reported on the return. Deficiency is the amount this taxpayer still owes to the IRS.

deficiency

1. The amount by which an individual's or an organization's tax liability as computed by the Internal Revenue Service exceeds the tax liability reported by the taxpayer.
2. The amount by which a firm's liabilities exceed assets.

deficiency

The amount due on a mortgage loan after adding all expenses of foreclosure and accrued interest to the principal balance of the loan and then deducting the sale price or lender-bid price for the property. The balance remaining, if any, may be collected by the lender by means of taking a deficiency judgment, unless prohibited by law or contract. Deficiency judgments may be collected just like any other judgment, through seizure of other assets or garnishment. There are two circumstances when a lender may not collect any deficiency:

1. In states with consumer protection statutes that outlaw deficiencies on first mortgages on a borrower's principal residence.

2. With mortgage loans designated as nonrecourse, meaning the lender and borrower agreed in advance that the property would stand for the debt and there would be no deficiency allowed in the event of foreclosure.

However, there have been previous studies examining age variation in C8 concentrations among children with confirmed MCADD (1, 2, 4, 7), demonstrating that infants tested at <10 weeks of age have significantly higher (P < 0.
985A>G among those who tested presumptively positive during the UK MCADD screening study in the same period.
These findings provide useful evidence for MCADD screening programs using C8 as a biomarker in samples obtained from newborns between the second and fourteenth days of life.
Finally, we performed an additional validation of the BCI variant for binarization for all folds with a secondary data set of MCADD cases and controls of the screening center in Hamburg, Germany, with a similar analyte spectrum.
A residual value of 100% means that according to the [chi square] values the binary feature separates the classes control and MCADD with the same accuracy as the numeric feature.
In the BCI variant, large declines in discriminatory performance indicated high variation in the MCADD group used to calculate the BCI threshold.
Stanley led the Children's Hospital research team that discovered MCADD in 1983, simultaneously with independent reports from the University of Iowa and researchers in Denmark.
Unlike some other metabolic diseases," say the study's authors, "the complications of MCADD are preventable.
For example, if tandem mass spectrometry is already used for PKU and MCADD, then adding one more metabolic disorder seems to add only a little to the cost.
20) Massachusetts mandates screening for MCADD but makes other testing optional.
