Title Neighborhood environment and health in old age: what role do individual characteristics play in this link?
Date 2004-01-16
Description This research investigates the relationship among objectively assessed neighborhood SES, subjective perceptions of neighborhood environment, and self-rated physical health among older persons. We further explore the structural and psychosocial mechanisms at the individual level underlying the observed neighborhood effects on health. We conceptualize that individual economic power, social resources, and psychological status are intervening factors rather than confounders on the path from neighborhood to health.
