Dr. Patricia O’Campo of the University of Toronto discusses contextual analysis in her study of neighborhood deprivation and preterm birth rates; her multi-site study of the effects of neighborhood deprivation was conducted in rural and urban areas. She begins with a description of how she constructed an index of neighborhood deprivation, and continues with an overview of her methods of data analysis. Dr. O’Campo concludes with a discussion of the study’s results, and presents additional resources on multilevel modeling. A question and answer session follow.
• How was an index of neighborhood deprivation developed?
• Is the Neighborhood Deprivation Index associated with Preterm Birth in a single site?
• Is the Neighborhood Deprivation Index associated with Preterm Birth across multiple sites?
• What are some resources available for those wanting to learn more about multilevel modeling?
