Insight into Oxford County's built environment
The built environment is a determinant of health that can influence a variety of behaviours like exercise and social interaction which, in turn, can affect chronic disease rates and overall wellbeing. The Built Environment report provides insight into Oxford County residents’ thoughts on neighbourhood walkability and the importance of specific built environment characteristics to different populations. Download the report.
