Scale

Payment of different rates of interest on CDs of varying maturities. A bank is said to "post a scale." Commercial paper dealers also post scales.

Scale

The range of prices at which an underwriter offers to place with investors a serial bond, where the individual bonds have different maturities.

scale

The schedule of yields (or prices) at which a serial bond issue is offered to the public by the underwriter. The schedule reflects yields at the various maturities being offered. Also called offering scale. See also inverted scale, preliminary scale.

scale

The relationship between measurements on a plan or map and the dimensions of the physical object represented.One inch might represent 10 feet or 10 miles.Topographic maps contain two scales,one for distance and one for change in elevation.

Based on the a small scope research conducted in Indonesia, four different sample sizes of 113, 226, 339 and 452 observations were generated based on four point interval scales ranging from 1 = never to 4 = always.

Because the technical efficiencies of DMUs A and D are a constant of 1, their interval scale efficiencies are the same as their respective interval overall efficiencies.
Second, while the point scale efficiency is defined as the ratio of the CCR to the BCC efficiencies for each specific value of [Y.sub.B], one cannot define the interval scale efficiency directly as the ratio of the interval overall efficiency to the interval technical efficiency.
The two-level models for calculating the lower and upper bounds of the interval scale efficiencies have the following structure:
