Improving spatial microsimulation estimates of health outcomes by including geographic indicators of health behaviour: The example of problem gambling

Markham, Francis; Young, Martin; Doran, Bruce


Gambling is an important public health issue, with recent estimates ranking it as the third largest contributor of disability adjusted life years lost to ill-health. However, no studies to date have estimated the spatial distribution of gambling-related harm in small areas on the basis of surveys of problem gambling. This study extends spatial microsimulation approaches to include a spatially-referenced measure of health behaviour as a constraint variable in order to better estimate the spatial...[Show more]
