Spatial statistics, environmental justice, and equity in access
Professor, Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics,
Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University
Abstract: Location defines exposure to environmental and social factors influencing health and access to care. Here we use similar statistical approaches to explore racial differences in exposures to potential health hazards (e.g., point sources of environmental pollution) and health benefits (e.g., testing sites for COVID). We illustrate how similar geographic questions can drive the application of similar analytic techniques converting seemingly different analytic questions into familiar statistical comparisons. The two examples illustrate the impact of spatial scale in assessing differences in exposure and access between subpopulations as well as the impact of legacy patterns of housing and local diversity on current siting decisions of testing and treatment facilities.
