AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What is the impact of time-varying, place-based social determinants of health measures on physical and mental health

To answer important physical and mental health questions we need to understand the trajectory of the individuals and the trajectories of the places they have lived (residential histories). If exposure equals space x time (over the life courses) we need data on the timing, sequence and duration of residence in specific contexts (places). How we define/measure place is important for (retro)prospective work and will enables comparisons between movers/stayers and of the stayers in changing contexts.

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. Yes
