Thus, it is necessary to be able to measure the indices of walkability
and quality of the infrastructure for pedestrians - sidewalks (Grasser et al.
A subset of questions from the Physical Activity Neighborhood Environment Survey (PANES) was used to measure the subjective perception of neighborhood walkability
, both around the workplace and around home (Sallis et al., 2010).
There was an increased incidence of asthma among birth home neighborhoods with low walkability
(hazard ratio, 1.11).
A large amount of spatial variability in Brisbane exists in the three main components of walkability
considered in this paper: residential density, land-use mix, and street connectivity.
Various global rakings mention that Pakistani cities act poorly in terms of the criteria of density, livability, business environment, walkability
This sequential mixed method study has two objectives: (1) estimating the associations between perceived changes in walking and cycling for transportation and overall physical activity and changes in objectively assessed neighbourhood walkability
(Walk Score[R]) and (2) describing perceived built environment barriers and facilitators to physical activity following neighbourhood relocation.
Apex co-founder, Roger Neiley, explains, "We reject the idea that your feet should be packed into a shell two sizes too small to create enough support to edge effectively." Neiley continues, "The Apex design is different and thousands of skiers have found that it's better; we pair a comfortable, Vibram-soled walking boot for a contoured fit via Boa closures with a three-buckle 'Open Chassis,' which integrates with any alpine binding." Ultimately, the Apex system allows skiers the comfort and walkability
of a snowboard boot with a high performance cuff that transfers leg energy efficiently and powerfully to the skis for ultimate control.
Walk Score, which lets prospective renters and buyers choose homes based on walkability
, ranks cities in the US, Canada and Australia.
That threshold point appears to be a walkability
score of 50, yet Mr.
In Marion County, Indiana, home to the Health By Design coalition in Indianapolis, the area's diversity in land use types, such as high-speed traffic areas, made improving walkability
Researchers evaluated walkability
based on four factors: population density, number of walkable destinations (stores, services, parks), residential building density, and street connectivity.
Many times that works, but in using eight measurements: cost of living, crime rates (both violent and property), well-being of seniors, walkability
, taxes, health care quality, weather and culture, Bankrate added a multidimensional way to search for the right spot -- or not -- to retire.
(7) The reasons why dogs may not be walked are multi-faceted, with studies identifying owner (e.g., sense of responsibility), dog (e.g., health status, behaviour), social environment (e.g., sense of community) and physical environment (e.g., walkability
, access to off-leash areas) factors as important barriers or facilitators of dog-walking.
The series also includes four assignments--a walkability
assessment, an existing conditions analysis, a level of service assessment, and bicycle level of service and level of traffic stress analyses--that students may work on individually or as part of a small group.
It gives us the opportunity to maintain the feel and walkability
of Fondren as it exists today."
