Abstract:

An essential collection that advances our understanding of how cities influence our health Urban Health connects urban exposures -- the experiences, choices, and behaviors shaped by living in a city -- to their impact on population health. By using the ubiquitous urban experience as a lens to study these exposures across borders and demographics, this book offers a new, scalable framework for understanding health and disease. Its applications to public health, epidemiology, and social science are virtually unlimited.

More than half the world's population lives in cities, a figure that will grow to two-thirds by 2030. As global populations rapidly consolidate around urban centers, the scientific understanding of what this means for human health gains new and greater urgency. Urban Helath connects urban exposures - the experiences, choices, and behaviors shaped by living in a city - to their impact on population health. By using the ubiquitous aspects of the urban experience as a lens to study these exposures across borders and demographics, Urban Health offers a new, scalable framework for understanding health and disease in cities. Its applications to public health, epidemiology, and social science are virtually unlimited. --
