Influence of the spatial resolution of the exposure estimate in determining the association between heat waves and adverse health outcomes.

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2019 26;109(3):875-886. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Department of Population Health Sciences, Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061, USA.

Background: Area-level estimates of temperature may lead to exposure misclassification in studies examining associations between heat waves and health outcomes. Our study compared the association between heat waves and preterm birth (PTB) or non-accidental death (NAD) using exposure metrics at varying levels of spatial resolution: ZIP codes, 12.5 km, and 1 km.

Alcohol risk environments, vulnerability and social inequalities in alcohol consumption.

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2018 21;108(5):1210-1227. Epub 2018 Mar 21.

Department of Geography, Durham University, Durham, UK, DH1 3LE.

Alcohol and alcohol related harm are key public health challenges. Research has shown that individual level factors, such as age and sex, are important predictors of alcohol consumption, but such factors provide only a partial account of the drivers of consumption. In this paper we argue that individual level factors with features of the 'risk environment' to increase the vulnerability of individuals to such environments. Read More

Sexual Orientation, Gender, and Environmental Injustice: Unequal Carcinogenic Air Pollution Risks in Greater Houston.

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2017 30;107(1):72-92. Epub 2016 Sep 30.

Disparate residential hazard exposures based on disadvantaged gender status (e.g., among female-headed households) have been documented in the distributive environmental justice literature, yet no published studies have examined whether disproportionate environmental risks exist based on minority sexual orientation.

Natural Hazard Management from a Coevolutionary Perspective: Exposure and Policy Response in the European Alps.

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2017 Mar 14;107(2):382-392. Epub 2016 Nov 14.

Institute of Geography, University of Bern.

A coevolutionary perspective is adopted to understand the dynamics of exposure to mountain hazards in the European Alps. A spatially explicit, object-based temporal assessment of elements at risk to mountain hazards (river floods, torrential floods, and debris flows) in Austria and Switzerland is presented for the period from 1919 to 2012. The assessment is based on two different data sets: (1) hazard information adhering to legally binding land use planning restrictions and (2) information on building types combined from different national-level spatial data.

Global Health, Geographical Contingency, and Contingent Geographies.

Authors:
Clare Herrick

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2016 May 6;106(3):672-687. Epub 2016 Apr 6.

Department of Geography, King's College London.

Health geography has emerged from under the "shadow of the medical" to become one of the most vibrant of all the subdisciplines. Yet, this success has also meant that health research has become increasingly siloed within this subdisciplinary domain. As this article explores, this represents a potential lost opportunity with regard to the study of global health, which has instead come to be dominated by anthropology and political science.

A location-centric network approach to analyzing epidemic dynamics.

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2016;106(2):480-488. Epub 2016 Jan 12.

Department of Geography, University at Buffalo, the State University of New York.

Recent health threats, such as the SARS, H1N1, and Ebola pandemics, have stimulated great interest in network models to study the transmission of communicable diseases through human interaction and mobility. Most current network models have focused on an individual-centric perspective where individuals are represented as nodes, and the interactions among them as edges. Few of these models are concerned with the discovery of the spatial patterns and dynamics of epidemics. Read More

Validating Population Estimates for Harmonized Census Tract Data, 2000-2010.

Ann Am Assoc Geogr 2016 17;106(5):1013-1029. Epub 2016 Jun 17.

University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

Social scientists regularly rely on population estimates when studying change in small areas over time. Census tract data in the United States are a prime example, since there are substantial shifts in tract boundaries from decade to decade. This study compares alternative estimates of the 2000 population living within 2010 tract boundaries to the Census Bureau's own re-tabulation. Read More
