WP2 developments on Strategic road map for measuring the association between health determinants and risk behaviours

Polibienestar (UVEG) 2024-03-27

This strategic document provides an overview of the planned approach to analyze the association between urban environment characteristics and risk behaviors for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), specifically Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD). The analysis adopts a cross-sectional design, leveraging self-reported data from surveys. It is important to note that the analysis is non-causal – as it does not provide an estimate of the effect of an event’s occurrence on the disease occurrence – but aims to provide insights into association patterns and risk factors.
