Abstract

This article calls attention to two procedures for investigating relationships between residential environments and behavior: geocoding of respondent data and a strategy based on age of respondent as an indicator of residential exposure. These procedures are illustrated in terms of data from the Eastern Baltimore Mental Health Survey (Baltimore site of the National Institute of Mental Health Epidemiologic Catchment Area Program) and 1980 census data from the Health Demographic Profile System.
