Population Health and Urban Form – A Literature Review
and Research Plan
Evidence from the USA indicates that one reason peoples’ health is not as good as it might be, is that community design makes healthy living difficult: hard to walk, to cycle, to avoid air pollution, traffic accidents, etc.  Is this also true for Canadian communities? This was the thesis that Smart Growth BC wanted to research.
YTA conducted a literature review and gathered the results into a report that focused on physical inactivity and sedentary lifestyles, on the physical environment, and on health inequalities.
This report formed the basis for further research and the production of a report entitled Promoting Public Health Through Smart Growth, which can be downloaded from the Smart Growth website.
