  • Identifying Obesogenic Communities in the U.S.: An Urban-Rural Comparison
    In this study, we propose to create an obesogenic environment score for all U.S. counties and Census tracts, explore urban versus rural differences in obesogenic environment scores, and examine associations between obesogenic environments and childhood obesity overall and by level of rurality.
