  • Spatial Effects and Associated Factors on Migration Flows of China from
           2005 to 2015

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Spatial spillovers and heterogeneity are rarely discussed in the migration flow pattern analysis, despite China’s vast and diverse territory. This paper used spatial interaction model to capture the spatial features and relationships between migration flows and their potential factors. We found that migration flows were significantly characterized by geographic heterogeneity, spatial dependence and spillover. Spatial effects and population size exerted a tangible influence in relation to 2005–2015 migration flows within a given region and its surroundings. Promoting an urbanization policy affected the flows in the origin and destination regions differently. These findings revealed that the attractiveness of eastern coastal regions as destinations remained stronger than that of the central and western regions. Consequently, the trend of massive eastbound migration flow remains uncurbed despite the decade of urban development in the central and western regions. These findings also suggested that urbanization in central or western China will undergo circular promotion due to the increasing urbanization level itself. Smaller gaps will strengthen the synergetic development of population migration and urbanization between the regions and their neighbors. The new-type urbanization policy should focus on diminishing the disparities between coastal and inner regions.

  • The Spatial Distribution of Religious Organizations in the United States
           and their Socioeconomic Characteristics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Religious organizations play an important role in improving the standard of living for communities. In this study, we examine addresses of more than 63,000 U.S. religious organizations using publicly available non-profit 2019 data filed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, and associated socioeconomic data from the 2014-2018 American Community Survey. Using spatial statistics methods at the county level, we find that religious organizations physically locate away (in a non-random fashion) from those of the same and different religions. Additionally, the level of spatial clustering correlates with various socioeconomic and demographic variables, reflecting economic opportunity, social needs, human development, and societal values. Higher levels of clustering are positively associated with lower incomes, higher economic inequality and higher unemployment.

  • Spatial Location Optimization of Fire Stations with Traffic Status and
           Urban Functional Areas

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Efficient spatial deployment of urban fire stations is highly desired to address the frequent and complex modern urban fires. Various spatial location optimization approaches have been developed to site fire stations. However, most approaches ignored the impact of the traffic status and the actual demand areas of fire services in the rapid urbanization. This paper develops a multi-objective spatial optimization model to account for the traffic status with the online map and the actual demands of fire services with urban functional areas in siting fire stations. A case study in Nanjing, China is conducted to select fire stations with the developed model. Results demonstrate its effectiveness in siting fire stations and highlighting important policy implications for fire departments to ensure urban safety and resilience.

  • Mapping a Country Image from Global News Reports about COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The outbreak of the coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has infected hundreds of millions of people worldwide and caused millions of deaths. This study used media analysis and correlation analysis to elucidate the significant differences in the ways in which news reports from 228 countries discussed a specific country when covering the COVID-19 pandemic. Media reports analysed in this study were collected from the Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone project (GDELT). These differences were found to be deeply embedded in the economic, socio-political, and cultural contexts of different countries. The findings reinforced the hypothetical assumption in framing theory and promoted a measurable and upscaled use of framing theory into macro geography studies. This study highlights the urgent need of a geo-political examination of COVID-19 in the global context—an area with insufficient interest from interdisciplinary perspective beyond epidemiology. Further research can be of great value for the promotion of an effective international cooperation mechanism to curb the spread of COVID-19.

  • Delineating Walking Catchment of the Existing and Proposed Public Sports
           Facilities with Open-Source Data: A Case Study of Nanjing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Public sports facilities, featuring exercise equipment and athletic facilities as well as professional support services, serve as a critical exercising and active living hub for citizens. Regarded as a component of public welfare, their distribution usually plays an integral role in urban planning for healthy and active cities. Ensuring that these facilities are located within a reasonable walking distance is crucial for encouraging people to visit them; hence, planners must consider walking distance when evaluating the rationale for these facilities’ existing and proposed distribution. Using Nanjing, China as a case study, we employed the Baidu Maps online mapping service to implement a city-scale catchment delineation of public sports facilities. We scraped the shortest walking routes between residents’ homes and the public sports facilities to delineate the walking catchments, then combined population data to explore the potential gaps between demands and needs. The results revealed significant differences in service areas and potential service capabilities across the sports facilities, demonstrating spatial inequity of sports resources and an insufficient number of public sports facilities in the study area. The walking accessibility of facilities in the peripheral areas was inferior to that of facilities in the central areas, which were expected to be overloaded with a citizen population. If implemented, the proposed plan would remediate this inequity to some extent, but considerable areas outside of 15-min catchments would persist in the study area. These findings highlight the spatial inequity of sports facilities within the city, in both the existing and proposed situation, implying disparities in physical activity opportunities among citizens. Such a straightforward estimation, reinforced with a big data approach, will prove useful for planners and policymakers, although it remains rarely adopted in China for supporting active city planning, and it will be transferable to other cities as a means of rapid assessment.

  • Spatially Varying Intergenerational Changes in the Prevalence of Female
           Genital Mutilation/Cutting in Nigeria: Lessons Learnt from a Recent
           Household Survey

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Considering the concerted investments in anti-female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) campaigns championed by the Nigerian government and non-governmental organizations, research findings suggest that reduction in intergenerational (mother-to-daughter) prevalence of FGM/C in Nigeria has been very slow. What can we learn from the 2018 Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey (2018 NDHS) about the roles of the key drivers of mother-to-daughter FGM/C prevalence in Nigeria' Here, drawing upon the 2018 NDHS dataset, we provided a context-specific study on the geographical patterns and the enabling factors of intergenerational trends in FGM/C among Nigerian women aged 15 – 49 years and their daughters aged 0 – 14 years. Using Bayesian semi-parametric geo-additive regression model, we simultaneously controlled for the effects of individual-level, community-level and unobserved geographical factors. We learnt that although there has been an overall decline in mother-to-daughter prevalence of FGM/C, the practice persists in Nigeria largely due to geographical location and social norm related factors – risk was high among daughters of circumcised women and daughters of women who supported the continuation of FGM/C. We identified Kano, Kaduna, Imo and Bauchi states as the hotspots and there was an increased risk of FGM/C among daughters of women who lived in the neigbouring states of Jigawa and Yobe. Daughters of circumcised women were about 2.7 times more likely to be cut. We recommend the development of tailored community-level interventions targeting circumcised women in the hotspot states and their neighbours to ensure a total eradication of female circumcision in Nigeria by the year 2030.

  • Assessment of Doubly Disadvantaged Neighborhoods by Healthy Living
           Environment Exposure

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Good access to greenspace and healthy food has commonly been found to be positively associated with health outcomes, despite some studies finding no significant relationship between them. Examining inequalities in accessing greenspace and healthy food among different disadvantaged neighborhoods can help reveal the disadvantaged races/ethnicities in cities with a high level of residential segregation (i.e., population of the same race/ethnicity concentrated in the same neighborhoods). However, existing studies have mostly focused on measuring the inequalities in accessing either greenspace or healthy food alone, which can lead to the inaccurate depiction of disadvantaged neighborhoods in healthy living environments. Therefore, this paper aims at improving the assessment of doubly disadvantaged neighborhoods by considering accessibility to both greenspace and healthy food in the City of Chicago. Our results show that black-majority neighborhoods are the most doubly disadvantaged in terms of exposure to healthy living environments. This study can help guide policymakers to divert more resources towards the improvement of the urban environment for the most doubly disadvantaged neighborhoods.

  • Spatio-temporal Evolution of Tourism Development Quality under the New
           Development Pattern of “Double Circulation”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper constructs an evaluation system of tourism development quality (TDQ) that can reflect the new development concept from five dimensions: tourism product quality, tourism service quality, tourism economic quality, tourism social quality, and tourism environment quality. The comprehensive evaluation model of the improved “vertical and horizontal” open-level method is used to measure the TDQ in 31 provinces in China from 2005 to 2019. Combined with the model of Markov chain and hot-spot analysis, the temporal and spatial evolution characteristics are analyzed. The major findings are as follows: (1) China’s TDQ tended to improve and showed a decreasing trend of “east–central–west” from 2005 to 2019. (2) Spatial factors have a certain impact on the transfer of different levels of TDQ. Moreover, a certain phenomenon of “club convergence” exists. (3) The hot spots of TDQ expanded, and the cold spots contracted, indicating increased high-level agglomeration and weakened low-level agglomeration from 2005 to 2019.

  • Classifying High-Speed Rail Stations in the Yangtze River Delta, China:
           The Node-Place Modelling Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Following the rapid expansion of the high-speed rail (HSR) network in China, transit-oriented development (TOD) has been widely introduced in HSR station areas of both large and small cities. However, as most HSR stations are new construction, some problems have emerged, e.g., over-planned station areas, airport-like stations above local demand, lack of vitality in station areas, and long distances between stations and city centers. This paper examines the HSR-TOD pattern in the Yangtze River Delta, China, with the densest HSR networks in regional China. We employed the classic node-place model through multiple data sources to classify HSR stations and examine their features. The results show that 123 HSR stations can be classified into eight clusters. Each cluster has typical development characteristics of node and place values and their relations. Given increasing cities with multi HSR stations, the classification results are further analyzed to explore the functional division of HSR stations in the city. The results show that only large cities can accommodate the primary HSR station with high node and place values, suggesting the challenges of HSR-TOD approaches in the YRD. It further highlights that the node-place relation is a dynamic process that necessitates coordinating short- and long-term station area development in the context of rapid urbanization.

  • Ageing in Place Classification: Creating a geodemographic classification
           for the ageing population in England

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Population ageing is one of the most significant demographic changes underway in many countries. Far from being a homogenous group, older people and their experiences of ageing are diverse. A better understanding of the characteristics and geography of the older population, including the older workforce, is important. It allows policymakers and stakeholders to better adapt to the opportunities and challenges that the ageing population brings. This paper describes the implementation of the Ageing in Place Classification (AiPC) in England. AiPC is a multidimensional geodemographic classification, and it employs a wide range of spatially representative attributes of older people’s sociodemographic characteristics and their living environment at the small area level. The openly available product provides valuable insights that can be implemented in both local and national contexts, in particular to improve service delivery and inform targeted policy interventions. AiPC is readily updateable with the arrival of new Census data; the concept and framework are also transferable to other countries.

  • Linking Historical Discriminatory Housing Patterns to the Contemporary
           Alcohol Environment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Research on alcohol outlet density consistently shows greater disparities in exposure in disinvested communities. Likewise, structural racism via discriminatory housing practices has created many of the issues that beset contemporary disinvested neighborhoods. Little work, however, has examined the relationship between housing practices and alcohol outlet disparities. The central premise of our work is that these discriminatory and inequitable practices create distinctions in the alcohol environment, and that such disparities have implications for work on alcohol policy. Here we link alcohol outlet density with a spatial database examining redlining, blockbusting, and gentrification in Baltimore, Maryland, and Flint, Michigan (two cities with common experiences of urban disinvestment over the last 50 years). Standard measures are used to account for the impacts of neighborhood racial, socioeconomic, and housing composition in a multilevel model. Our findings highlight that gentrification and redlining are strongly associated with alcohol outlet density, while blockbusting is not. Gentrification and redlining also frequently co-occur in inner-urban areas, while the more suburban phenomenon of blockbusting rarely overlaps with either. These findings further contextualize nascent work on structural racism in housing that illustrates important disparities along the lines of these distinct practices. Future work should consider how legacy impacts of discriminatory housing patterns impact our communities today.

           Vulnerable Groups due to Urban Rainstorm Flooding

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Waterlogging caused by heavy rains, a recurring problem in cities located within floodplains having poor runoff, often results in unequal degrees of impact on the population, which can be assessed from an environmental justice perspective. This paper aims to assess the inequitable exposure of various vulnerable and deprived social groups to two events of pluvial flooding in the city of Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz (Argentina), as well as uncover possible inequities. Methodologically, a specific urban populated area is adopted as relevant zone, and a set of sociodemographic indicators by small spatial units, denoting human vulnerability and deprivation, is selected. The analysis has intensely relied on GIS and a new Local Inequity Quotient to measure which sociodemographic groups, and what parts of the city have got relative under or over-exposure to hazard. The comparison to other authors’ works enables to reveal and confirm a well-known spatial pattern of negative discrimination, to assert the spatial accuracy of our results in the case studied, and to claim for the adequacy and usefulness of the method for urban management and planning, taking into account these largely disregarded environmental inequities in Latin America.

  • Mapping gendered vulnerability to energy poverty in Romania

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Gender inequities and their territorial impact (by a dissociate modelling of social relations) are of more and more interest for scholars, including the research studies regarding energy poverty. This paper analyzes spatial and social gender differentiations in Romania as indicators of vulnerability to energy poverty. The link between gender discrepancies and the susceptibility to energy poverty is enhanced by a series of gender-sensitive indicators and their impact in the 3181 territorial-administrative units in Romania. Spatial and statistical analyzes are, therefore, performed for indicators of vulnerable groups: age factors (population older than 75 years old; children with ages up to 4 years old), dependency indices (age dependency; economic dependency), health status (population with disabilities or limitative illnesses), employment status (unemployed, part-time employed, pensioners), or living conditions (dwellings without electricity, dwellings without heat services). The interrelations of different social axes and their territorial variations is demonstrated trough Principal Components Analysis and the results are spatialized using Multivariate Clustering, resulting vulnerability maps with a high-level of predictability. Even though results show gender discrepancies in rural areas, the female population is more prone to being energy poor due to the higher number of gender-sensitive indicators present within the same area. Based on these findings, enhancement measures can be taken for these communities so as to reduce the level of vulnerability and assure a socio-economic status beyond poverty; once the vulnerability is mapped, it is the responsibility of the local and national authorities to take action.

  • Decomposing the Temporal Signature of Nitrogen Dioxide Declines during the
           COVID-19 Pandemic in UK Urban Areas

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract On March 23, 2020, a national lockdown was imposed in the UK to limit interpersonal contact and the spread of COVID-19. Human mobility patterns were drastically adjusted as individuals complied with stay-at-home orders, changed their working patterns, and moved increasingly in the proximity of their home. Such behavioural changes brought about many spillover impacts, among which the sharp and immediate reduction in the concentration of nitrogen-based pollutants throughout the country. This work explores the extent to which urban Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) concentration responds to changes in human behaviour, in particular human mobility patterns and commuting. We model the dynamic and responsive change in NO2 concentration in the period directly following national lockdown and respective opening orders. Using the national urban air quality monitoring network we generate a synthetic NO2 concentration series built from a time series of historic data to compare expected modelled trends to the actual observed patterns in 2020. A series of pre- and post-estimators are modelled to understand the scale of concentration responsiveness to human activity and varying ability of areas across the UK to comply with the lockdown closing and response to openings. Specifically, these are linked to workday commuting times and observed patterns of human mobility change obtained from Google mobility reports. We find a strong and robust co-movement of air pollution concentration and work-related mobility – concentrations of NO2 during typical weekday commuting hours saw a higher relative drop, moving in tandem with patterns of human mobility around workplaces over the course of lockdowns and openings. While NO2 concentrations remained relatively low around the time of reopening, particularly during commuting hours, there is a relatively fast responsiveness rate to concentrations increasing quickly in line with human activity. With one of the key Government advice for workers to take staggered transportation into work and lessen the burden of rush hours and adopting more flexible work-home arrangements, our results would suggest that reductions in NO2 in urban areas are particularly responsive to broader human patterns and dynamics over time as we transitioned towards new working routines.

  • Inter-relationships between geographical scale, socio-economic data
           suppression and population homogeneity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Over time, technology has greatly enhanced access to vast amounts of public data in government datasets. At the same time there has been an increase in ‘neighbourhood’ level research, in which researchers typically select an administrative unit for their analysis. As the demand for data driven insights and decision making continues to rise, researchers face a tradeoff between data suppression (to protect the privacy of citizens) and homogeneity (the similarity of individuals within an area unit for given characteristics). In this paper, we explore the extent that different scales of geography impact data suppression and spatial homogeneity using the intra-class correlation and the D-Statistic. We use age, sex, ethnicity, education and income data from the 2013 New Zealand Census to assess a) the extent to which data are suppressed, and b) the spatial homogeneity of these variables across 5 scales of ‘small area’ geography available to researchers in NZ. The data used for this paper was accessed via the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI), a large data repository of de-identified, linked microdata obtained from government agencies, and nationally representative surveys. The scales used in this study are the 2013 Meshblock, Statistical Area 1, Data Zone, Statistical Area 2 and Area Unit, each of which can be used to analyse patterns at the ‘neighbourhood’ scale. We found that Data Zones are a suitable choice for undertaking analyses of census data as they represent a’medium’ scale geography designed to reduce data suppression while maintaining reasonable levels of population homogeneity. The policy implications for this research relate to zone design and decisions relating to the definition of ‘a small cell count’ for data dissemination for different users of sociodemographic data.

  • A Study on the Cooling Capacities of Urban Parks and Their Interactions
           with the Surrounding Urban Patterns

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this study, the climatic interactions between parks and the urban pattern surrounding them were investigated by sampling from two urban parks which are located in the Kadıköy district of Istanbul. Parks are very close to each other but their surrounding areas are different from each other in terms of the building density and the urban pattern. The analyses were carried out by examining the relationships between surface temperatures, distances to the park, and zones. Surface temperature/park distance correlations were examined in different zones by the bivariate method at a 0.01 significance level, and it was observed that the parks displayed different correlations in different pattern types and again each pattern type exhibited different graphics in temperature/distance scatter plots. When the results were evaluated from a climatic perspective, it was seen that a street with trees was more effective than a park area that has a weak plantation. On the other hand, the results also showed that the building geometries can cause the formation of cool islands. So, the study revealed that street planting and urban design are as important as the landscape design of park areas in terms of the cooling of the city.

  • Does Long-Term Air Pollution Exposure Affect Self-Reported Health and
           Limiting Long Term Illness Disproportionately for Ethnic Minorities in the
           UK' A Census-Based Individual Level Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Previous studies have investigated the impact of air pollution on health and mortality. However, there is little research on how this impact varies by individuals’ ethnicity. Using a sample of more than 2.5-million individuals aged 16 and older from the 2011 UK census linked to 10-years air pollution data, this article investigates the effect of air pollution on self-reported general health and limiting long-term illness (LLTI) in five main ethnic groups and by country of birth in UK. The association of air pollution with self-reported health and LLTI by individual’s ethnicity was examined using two levels mixed-effects generalised-linear models. Pakistani/Bangladeshi, Indian, Black/African/Caribbean, and other ethnic minorities and people born outside UK/Ireland were more likely to report poorer health and the presence of LLTI than White-group and UK/Ireland born individuals. Higher concentrations of NO2, SO2 and CO pollutants were associated with poorer self-reported health and the presence of LLTI in the UK population. Analysis by ethnicity showed a more pronounced effect of NO2, PM10, PM2.5, and CO air pollution on poor self-reported health and the presence of LLTI among ethnic minorities, mostly for people from Black/African/Caribbean origin compared to White people, and among non-UK/Ireland born individuals compared to natives. Using a large-scale individual-level census data linked to air pollution spatial data, our study supports the long-term deteriorating effect of air pollution on self-reported health and LLTI, which is more pronounced for ethnic minorities and non-natives.

  • Italian High-Speed Railway Stations and the Attractivity Index: the
           Downscaling Potential to Implement Coworking as Service in Station

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article introduces a methodology to evidence the current attractiveness level of Italian high-speed railway stations in a GIS environment, involving station services and flow parameters. The model has been relevant to detect stations with lower attractive capacity, and afterward, to implement the station attractivity, the work proposed employing a coworking spaces strategy as a service in station. Coworking spaces produce benefits both for the traveler and the transport company. These places became part of the services offered within railway stations since they are flow providers able to change appearance and idea of experience at station. In France, a coworking strategy has been created from the collaboration of Regus, leader company in coworking spaces supply, and the French railway group (SNCF). The Italian railway company (Ferrovie dello Stato) does not consider the attractiveness potential of coworking in the management of station resources; coworking spaces in Italy are placed outside stations. Accordingly, Torino Porta Susa station has been identified as one of the stations with low attractivity capacity from the methodology implemented, and it has been chosen as the case study to implement the coworking strategy. The choice of Torino Porta Susa is accurate also for showing the value of associating coworking as urban policies support. The coworking strategy can implement attractiveness levels and, in a long-term future perspective, encourage sustainable mobility targets.
