Link to my methodology paper: “ETHNOGRAPHIC DATA VISUALIZATION AS A METHODOLOGY TO VISUALIZE THE HEALTH IMPACTS OF STRUCTURAL VIOLENCE IN URBAN PHILADELPHIA COMMUNITIES”
Authored by the National Coalition for the Homeless in Washington, DC. It discusses the methods utilized by the United States Census to “count” the United States homeless population; it clearly addresses the faults in these methods.
“Discovering Unrecognized Lead-Smelting Sites by Historical Methods” details how Eckel et al. utilized historical methods to reveal previously unrecognized secondary lead smelters.
“Lead and Other Heavy Metals in Dust Fall from Single-Family Housing Demolition” quantified the amount of dust resulting from housing demolitions at different perimeters surrounding the demolition site; it measured the extent of lead contamination resulting from demolitions.
“A Study of Urban Housing Demolitions as Sources of Lead in Ambient Dust: Demolition Practices and Exterior Dust Fall” quantified dust fall amounts 10 meters out from demolition sites in Maryland. They found that the lead concentrations in this dust accumulation greatly surpassed the EPA’s standard of lead in residential areas.
“Early Provisional Estimates of Drug Overdose, Suicide, and Transportation-related Deaths: Nowcasting Methods to Account for Reporting Lags;” using statistical models, the National Center for Health Statistics found stark differences in drug overdose rates from 2019 to 2020.
This is a document provided to me by Nikki; it extensively outlines the COVID19 testing sites hosted by major medical providers (does not include locations such as CVS or Walgreens) available in the greater Philadelphia area (PA and NJ).
