This atlas illustrates geographic variation in health and greenspace, variation in health and greenspace, as well as showing key findings from our research. It is divided into four sections:
an overview of Sheffield;
final section containing other related information.
OUR MOST SIGNIFICANT FINDINGS ARE THAT:
Having more green land cover e.g. parks and green spaces is associated with lower rates of poor health in Sheffield.
Larger domestic gardens are associated with lower rates of poor health both nationally and within Sheffield, and also with lower rates of depression in Sheffield.
Higher levels of greenspace cleanliness are associated with lower rates of depression in Sheffield.
Due to the nineteenth century public health practice of establishing public parks in deprived workingclass neighbourhoods, there is still a pattern of better greenspace accessibility in more deprived areas of Sheffield.
