How Neighborhood Conditions Affect Health

A recent report from The Commonwealth Fund, Listening to Low-Income Patients, takes an in-depth look at how the physical and environmental conditions of neighborhoods shape the health of low-income individuals.

The report profiles individuals in disadvantaged neighborhoods in California and New York and illustrates how living in areas with few grocery stores, spaces for physical activity, or quality housing and transportation can contribute to poor health outcomes. The report also explores how living in neighborhoods where people do not feel safe because of violence or crime can lead to high levels of stress, anxiety, and depression.
