Download PDF versionRogowski, Jeannette A., Vicki Freedman, and Robert F. Schoeni. 2006. "Neighborhoods and the Health of the Elderly: Challenges in Using National Survey Data." PSC Research Report No. 06-600. 5 2006.

In this paper, we provide an overview of what is known about neighborhoods and health in late life and discuss the potential and challenges of using national survey data to study this topic. We begin with a theoretical model of how neighborhoods affect health throughout the lifecourse. We then review the literature linking neighborhoods to health in late life. The advantages and challenges in using national survey data such as the Health and Retirement Survey (HRS) and Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) are then discussed. We end with a list of recommended topics for further investigation.

Country of focus: United States of America.
