Racial and Neighborhood Disparities in Infant Health (ICPSR 34358)
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.
These data are not available from DSDR. Users should consult the data owners directly for details on obtaining these resources.
