The RAND Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) Data Core Series is composed of a wide selection of analytical measures, encompassing a variety of domains, all derived from a number of disparate data sources. The central focus of the CPHHD Data Core is on geographic measures for census tracts, counties, and Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) from two distinct geo-reference points, 1990 and 2000. The current study, Neighborhood Socioeconomic Status Index, has three datasets available, each containing a normalized socioeconomic index of disadvantage for census tracts: two of them 1990 geo-referenced, and the other 2000 geo-referenced. Two of the datasets are cross-sectional and one is longitudinal; each of them contain a normalized, annualized socioeconomic status measure. Currently, the data are summarized only at the census tract level due to the fact that the goal of this study is to provide a measurement at the neighborhood level, and the census tract is the finest geographic level available in the Data Core.
