Census block-group-specific predicted outdoor nitrogen dioxide (NO(2); a marker of traffic pollution) levels and four census block group socioeconomic position (SEP) measures were used to evaluate whether chronic exposures to traffic-related air pollutants are higher in areas with lower SEP, after controlling for spatial autocorrelation in mixed models. NO(2) levels were predicted using a geographic information system (GIS)-based spatiotemporal model that was validated with measured NO(2… CONTINUE READING
