Neighborhoods and Health

Robert J. Sampson

Oxford University Press

A new generation of neighborhood-level research has emerged in recent years to address the question of why so many health-related outcomes are concentrated ecologically. This chapter highlights the implications of such research for our knowledge about the community-level context of public health and safety. Drawing on recent lessons from sociological research, it identifies what it is about neighborhoods—above and beyond the status and attributes of the individuals who live there—that might lead to various health outcomes.

Keywords:   neighborhood research, health effects, public health, health outcomes, sociological research, community research
