Following on from our creation of two evidence-based measures capturing the health-related physical environmental characteristics of all small areas in the UK (see MEDIx and MEDClass) CRESH’s Ana Isabel Ribeiro and Richard Mitchell have transferred the technique to Portugal. The result is PT-MEDIx, and you can read more about the study here, and download the data here. If you use these data please cite the Ribeiro et al. (2015) paper (open access here) and credit the CRESH website.
The project is described in detail in Ana and Rich’s 2015 paper in the European Journal of Public Health “Development of a measure of multiple physical environmental deprivation. After United Kingdom and New Zealand, Portugal“.
