A Spatio-Demographic Perspective on the Role of Social Determinants of Health and Chronic Disease in Determining a Population's Vulnerability to COVID-19
Examines the relationship between potential social determinants of health (SDOH), COVID-19, and chronic disease in San Diego County, California, with comparisons among the county's subregional areas which range from urban in the west to rural in the east. Explores which socioeconomic factors associated with COVID-19 and chronic disease rates are potential SDOH. Discusses whether spatial modeling of chronic disease rates can identify communities most vulnerable to COVID-19.
