Brogan, D.R. and J.L. Douglas. 1980.  Physical environment correlates of psychosocial health among urban residents. Amer. J. Community Psychology 8(5):507-522.
The authors examine the hypothesis that urban dwellers' psychosocial health is based on the physical characteristics of the environment in which they live. Research conducted in 100 Atlanta, Georgia city blocks revealed that the physical characteristics were as important as the socio- cultural characteristics of the environment in explaining variation in psychosocial health.
