The Influence of Place on Consumption: Exploring Adolescent Unhealthy Consumption in Low Versus High-Income and Urban Versus Non-Urban Neighborhoods of the United States

This research investigates how place affects unhealthy consumption among youth. We model the association between intra-urban differences by income and adolescents’ unhealthy consumption; and how access to unhealthy retail mediates this association. Results demonstrate significant differences in unhealthy consumption among adolescents living in low versus high-income urban and non-urban neighborhoods.
