THE LINKS BETWEEN
CITY LIVING & BETTER HEALTH
ACCORDING TO A RECENT STUDY by the
University of Oxford and the University of Hong Kong,
there is a relationship between living in a city and
better overall health. For example, this chart illustrates
the connection between housing density and factors
associated with obesity.
THIS RELATIONSHIP most likely exists because
people who live in urban environments spend more time
being physically active, as shown here.
AS DISPLAYED IN THIS CHART, the connection
between residential density and physical activity remains
relatively consistent across multiple demographics.
