urban gridStudies at EPA are showing that health disparities can be influenced by the neighborhood environment. People who
live in communities where there is environmental pollution, lower incomes, traffic and lack of green spaces, for example, may be at greater risk of negative health outcomes. Neighborhood
level socioeconomic status or deprivation can influence various health outcomes of residents and may, in fact, exacerbate responses to local environmental conditions, such as air pollution. Research at EPA examines effects of neighborhood factors on cardiovascular and overall health as well as molecular indicators of aging. This research also examines whether exposure to air pollution and neighborhood factors combined contribute to greater health effects than those observed with either exposure alone. As EPA focuses on environmental justice issues, it is increasingly important to understand how neighborhood factors and air pollution combined may affect health outcomes.
