Neighborhoods and Health

Second Edition

Edited by Dustin T. Duncan, Ichiro Kawachi, and Foreword by Ana V. Diez Roux

  • The originating work at the intersection of place and health (the field now known as spatial epidemiology), now completely revised and expanded
  • A scientifically grounded work in theory and methods of how neighborhood factors (things like neighborhood stigma, home foreclosure, food access, and walkability) impact health, including manifestations such as obesity, hypertension, and disease
  • A complete and up-to-date survey of neighborhood-health research being conducted in the fields of epidemiology and geography, with detailed applications to public health and urban planning
  • Offers accessible, novel approaches from both population science and social science to address problems of public health and health equity
  • Renders spatial epidemiology in terms of today's greatest health challenges (e.g., smoking, obesity, HIV), with implications and possible health policy solutions
  • An essential, accessible text for courses and practice in epidemiology, public health, geography, medicine, demography, urban planning, and health policy
