UK Biobank Urban Morphometric Platform - Local environment - Additional exposures
This category contains data obtained from a morphometric analysis of the built environment that was conducted by the Cochrane Institute of Primary Care and Public Health, Cardiff University. The aim of this project was to create an objective assessment of the built environment within the immediate residential neighbourhood of UK Biobank participants. Since January 2017, Built Environment metrics are available for participants from all assessment centres.
The available metrics include:
- Building class
- Destination accessibility
- Land use density
- Street network accessibility
- Terrain (slope)
- Accessibility foodscapes (London area only)
