Abstract

​What is the influence of street network design on public health? The three fundamental elements of street networks are: street network density, connectivity, and configuration. Without sufficient attention being paid to these individual elements of street network design, building a community for health remains a guessing game.

They answer by examining 24 California cities exhibiting a range a street network typologies using health data from the California Health Interview Survey from 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009.
