25 Jan Does investing in low-income urban neighborhoods improve sleep?
Dubowitz et al recently published an article looking at the impact of infrastructure investment on sleep quality in the Journal of sleep. They compared two similar neighborhoods, one where significant investment (both private and government) occurred. While they didn’t find any measurable difference in sleep quality between the neighborhoods, they did note that those living closest to the investment were associated to better sleep outcomes. However a clear cause was not identified.
