Transportation and Health - Conceptualization and Quantification

This project will conceptualize and document the linkages between transportation and health. It will also quantify the impact of transportation on health (indicated by premature mortality) for the linkages which are supported by a robust evidence base: air pollution, noise and motor vehicle crashes. Houston, Texas will be used as the case study. Finally, the results will be visualized in the form of easy to grasp and compare maps for the different linkages and pathways.
