Use of Neighborhood Characteristics to Improve Prediction of Psychosocial Outcomes: A Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems Investigation
Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 08/03/2012
Corrigan JD et al. – The results did not support the hypotheses that characteristics of a person's neighborhood would increase outcome prediction beyond that which can be accomplished based on characteristics of the individual alone. Though neighborhood characteristics were statistically significant in prediction models, the improvement in percent of variance accounted for was negligible. Refinements in conceptualization and methodology are suggested for continued exploration of the contribution of neighborhood characteristics to traumatic brain injury (TBI) outcomes.
