Health-related residential mobility

4/19/2011 feature story

Using census data on prior residence, Arline Geronimus and John Bound test the proposition that selective migration contributes to geographic patterning of health. They estimate the association between health and the probability of moving into or out of specific local areas,1995-2000, and the impact of differential migration on the health of the local populations in 2000.
