Carolyn Côté-Lussier (Assistant Professor, Department of Criminology, and Senior Researcher, Centre for Research on Educational and Community Services, University of Ottawa) and her colleagues recently published two new articles, each making methodological contributions toward measuring variation in intra-urban neighborhood environments. The first one titled"Mapping ambient light at night using field observations and high-resolution remote sensing imagery for studies of urban environments" establishes the validity of using aerial based imagery to derive accurate assessments of intra-urban variation in Night Time Light. The second one, "Ego-centered relative neighborhood deprivation and reported dietary habits among youth", applies a new measure of neighborhood-relative deprivation to explain dietary habits among youth.
