Racial and Neighborhood Disparities in Infant Health (ICPSR 34358) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The principal investigators for this project constuct a unique dataset for Philadelphia, which merges information from vital statistics records with Medicaid claims records and individual-level data from publicly funded health centers. The individual-level data are then merged with a rich set of contextual information from multiple sources to create various measures of neighborhood quality, including housing and environmental quality, economic distress, social disorganization, health, and service availability.
