Demographic and Geographic Characteristics of Green Stormwater Infrastructure Investments in Five U.S. Cities: A Machine Learning–Based Analysis 2023
This report presents the results of an exploratory machine learning–based analysis of green stormwater infrastructure asset data across five cities in the United States. Within each city, authors evaluated how the location of installed green stormwater infrastructure was associated with the demographic and land-use characteristics of the surrounding area.
Evaluating the Demographic and Geographic Characteristics of Green Stormwater Infrastructure: Findings from a Machine Learning–Based Analysis of Five U.S. Cities 2023
This visual presents the results of an exploratory machine learning–based analysis of green stormwater infrastructure asset data across five cities in the United States. Within each city, authors evaluated the location of installed green stormwater infrastructure based on the demographic and land use characteristics of the surrounding area.
Influence of SNP*SNP Interaction on BMI in European American Adolescents: Findings from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health 2023
Our results are suggestive of epistatic effects on BMI during adolescence and point to potentially interactive effects between genes in biological pathways important in obesity.
Park Marketing Strategies, Park Conditions, and Park Use: A Longitudinal National Study of Parks 2023
Increases in subsidized meal offerings and greater use of marketing to promote park events predicted increased person-hours of total weekly park use. Pathways predicting park use varied across user and activity type.
Microsimulation Projections of Obesity Interventions on Cardiometabolic Health Disparities in the United States 2023
Long-term health education campaigns can reduce obesity-related disease. All population groups benefit, but they would not substantially narrow cardiometabolic health disparities.
While we did not observe sleep differences among residents between neighborhoods, living closer to a neighborhood investment was associated with better sleep outcomes.
Police Bias and Low Relatability and Diet Quality: Examining the Importance of Psychosocial Factors in Predominantly Black Communities 2023
Police bias and low relatability may play a role in community connection, social status, and ultimately dietary disparities for Black Americans. Addressing police bias and low relatability is a continuing and pressing public health issue.
Students' Consumption of High and Low Nutrition Foods and Reduced Plate Waste by Schools' Wellness-Related Policies and Garden Program Participation 2023
Participation in school-based programs that may support children's nutritious dietary behaviours varies across schools. We examined school participation in wellness-related policies, school-based garden programs and students' dietary behaviours.
