Differences in health indicators could be compared for benchmarking and to make changes. The opinions of policy makers regarding the tools will also be evaluated. We will collaborate with policy-makers, researchers and civil society through a number of activities including consultation during the development stage, through training workshops and the conference. Dissemination will be multi-modal co-ordinated through websites in formats adapted to different user-groups.
Training of doctoral and post-doctoral students will ensure future researchers interested in this expanding field. At all stages, stakeholders will be consulted. Activity type Higher or Secondary Education Establishments. Website Contact the organisation. Administrative Contact Liz Fay Ms. Chi Le-Ha Vietnam. Project website. Status Closed project. Start date 1 January End date 30 June Urban health for the win Increasing flows of people to urban areas elevates the importance of urban health and related policies. This follow-up initiative went a step further, developing methodology and validated tools for policymakers at all levels.
Comprised of 18 partners from 14 countries spanning Europe to Asia , the consortium described health and health determinants particular to urban areas in Europe. These covered cities in north, south, east and west Europe. Work involved collecting data at urban area level, providing tools for evidence-based policy, and developing methods for cross-sectional and longitudinal assessments of urban population health. Partners validated the tools and methods using population-based registries and databases, and applied the tools in the field with a view to ensuring their ease of use for policymakers.
Data from 26 urban areas in Europe are now available for between-city comparisons and benchmarking. As such, policymakers can now apply information in an evidence-based fashion when deciding on topics for urban health policy and interventions. Project partners collaborated with policymakers, researchers, non-governmental agencies and civil society through various activities. These included consultation and training workshops, as well as participation in the European Urban Health Conference in Amsterdam, the Netherlands September Lay users, researchers and policymakers can access the web platforms for data and metadata.
The project has filled a gap in information that is lacking from national data sets. Keywords Urban health, urban areas, policymakers, evidence-based decisions, health indicators. The project describes health and health determinants specific to urban areas in Europe, covering cities in North, East, South, and West Europe. This project adds to information that is already locally available, in that it is the first study to enable reliable comparisons of health status between different cities in Europe. Policy makers can use the information to prioritise topics for urban health policy and for interventions in an evidence-based way.
A tools were formulated, piloted, translated and disseminated. The data was validated and analysed to develop specific tools for policy makers to use. The meta-data collected has formed the context to investigate trends in policy, major health problems, and it has allowed for investigation of the link between the two. Differences in health indicators can be compared for benchmarking and to make changes. In total, data from 26 urban areas in Europe were available for between-city comparisons and benchmarking.
The EURO-URHIS 2 project collaborated with policy-makers, researchers, non-governmental agencies and civil society through a number of activities including consultation during the development stage, through training workshops and through the European Urban Health Conference in Amsterdam, September More detailed information on the justification of methods and instruments that were used, as well as response rates, selection of cities and indicators, and statistical methodology, can be found on our websites: www.
The websites also provide data from other participating urban areas and comparisons between specific cities can be made. The web platforms provide both access to the data and metadata for the lay population, researchers and policy makers. The health requirements of urban areas require research because neither national nor regional based methodology will capture the necessary information that policy makers need to make evidence based decisions on resources for health care.
The objectives were to collect data at UA level, provide tools for evidence-based policy at all levels for urban areas, to develop methods for cross-sectional and longitudinal assessment for urban population health including all relevant determinants of health, to validate these tools and methods by using existing population-based registries and databases, and to apply the tools in the field to ensure they were easy and intuitive to use by policy makers.
Urbanisation is occurring globally but the largest growth in Europe is observed in Central and Eastern Europe. Urban health is a growing field of research internationally. There are a number of issues that affect UAs primarily e. UAs have specific problems associated with health that are different to non-urban areas that national or regional investigations would not identify. Many urban areas have health policy determined at local level. Policy makers require data at urban area level to inform these local policies. Resource allocation is usually at local level in many countries.
However, national and international policy makers also require data at UA level to not only inform evidence based policy making, but also to evaluate the impact of policies. Early results demonstrated the potential importance of continuing the work on urban health indicators. The approach had been highly successful in all 60 urban areas 30 countries that returned the questionnaire. These additions include population density, migration, homelessness, social isolation, sexual minority groups, safe sexuality, single parent families, access to green spaces and local amenities, atmospheric conditions, crime, noise exposure, water quality and sanitation.
This is to provide global, European, national and local urban health policy makers with a range of aggregated health measures and impact measures to help with decision-making. The Urban Audit project has proven that it is possible to collect data at urban area level on a wide variety of indicators to allow comparisons. Other EU projects have investigated UAs for economic indicators, e. Are they useful? Are they applicable? EURO-URHIS 2 informed public policy for the purposes of achieving health gains and to improve delivery of healthcare to European citizens living in urban areas by performing research into trends in population health through health profiles, inequalities and policies.
More specifically: 1. The development of methodology appropriate to the needs of data collection 2. Presentation of data 4. The description of the health profile of European and non-European urban populations using the data collected 5. The development of tools for example health impact and policy impact tools etc.
Training and education of doctoral and post-doctoral research students and the wider community 7. The organisation of a European Urban Health Conference 8. The development and provision of a European training package on urban health tools and indicators 9. The consultation with stakeholders and other users throughout the project The dissemination of outcomes by engagement with civil society especially patient groups engendering debate and fostering an approach whereby users have initiated and expressed desire to participate in further research activities The self-sustainability of the project by linking with other projects In addition to the original objectives, EURO-URHIS 2 investigated more deeply with mixed methods, policy making in urban areas.
This was approved as a no cost extension by our Project Officer and was within the original budget. In depth analyses of urban policies, non-governmental organisations, interventions and priorities were also undertaken to understand decision-making and contextualise the results.

Summary Work Package 4 and 5 The results referred to in this section come from Work Package 4, which developed the strategy for collecting the data required, and Work Package 5, which disseminated the instruments, collected and validated the data collected. All outputs were disseminated via the activities of Work Package 2, 8, 9 and Work package 2 Dissemination activities include, email lists resulting in a database of local, regional, national and European contacts, newsletters, a press release, support for other work packages, and links with networks within and outside the EU.
Work package 6 WP6 has converted, cleaned, and recoded data collected from existing sources, youth and adult surveys in 41 UAs collected in WP4 and 5. Data has been weighted to create datasets that are representative of the UA. Eligibility criteria were developed to ensure high quality data.
Information on survey methodology and response rates was used to decide if UAs met the eligibility criteria. A subset of relevant indicators was selected for the health profiles. Statistical methods to calculate average health scores on indicators in UAs, and to compare indicators between UAs were evaluated. A storyboard was developed, for the graphical lay-out and contents of the health profiles.
Most recently, the health profiles were drafted. Work package 7 A review of methodologies used to calculate future predictions of health trends has been completed and a model developed. Sample predictions have been conducted. A review of Disability Adjusted Life Years DALYs methodology in relation to smoking and alcohol consumption, analyses using existing national level data and additional data collection have been undertaken.
Forty-five indicators have been mapped against the Health Impact Assessment HIA conceptual framework and the structure of a community health profile. The development and piloting of the draft urban HIA screening tool has taken place and the synthesis of methodology has begun. A review of the utility of Population Impact Measures PIMs has been completed and the impact of the engagement of policy makers on WP7 had been evaluated. Additional work to investigate the impact of the financial crisis, policy makers adaptation to the crises, in-depth qualitative work on decision making in urban areas and non-governmental organisations has also taken place.
Work package 8 An updated website platform was required as the original platform was not suitable. The new website was launched in June and there have been in excess of visitors since the launch. Feedback is very positive and planning of the results section of the new website is underway.
Twitter and LinkedIn are being used to promote the project. Through Twitter, the project has been contacted by the Guardian newspaper to take part in an online discussion on NHS health reforms, invited to submit journal articles, and asked for further information. The programme has been finalised and a call for abstracts made. Work package 10 In addition to the stated workshops, one additional workshop was added in light of feedback.
Workshop A Sept introduced data collection tools and ideal survey methods. Workshop B Jan finalized the data collection tools and identified UA specific survey methodologies. Workshop C July ensured that each partner reviewed an operational manual describing the data collection procedure. The first dissemination workshop D was delivered to policy makers on 19th Sept Specific Work for WP Preparation of dataset — WP6 cleaned and recoded the collected data and created three different datasets containing adult survey data, youth survey data, and routinely available registration data.
These datasets were used to make the urban area health profiles, to perform the scientific studies, and were distributed to the URHIS partners for local analysis. Respondents were excluded for a variety of reasons, such as missing data, incomplete questionnaire, outside required age or geographical range. Urban area health profiles — Data from the adult and youth surveys and routinely available data on both urban area and country level were used to create the health profiles. Since not all urban areas were able to collect all data, the exact content of the health profiles may differ between the urban areas.
Live births: o Accept figures derived from Eurostat for aggregated live births and from UNECE for women aged years at mid-year population. Tuberculosis incidence per , o Accept all figures provided for tuberculosis incidence per , Lung cancer incidence per , o Accept figures provided for lung cancer incidence per , derived from Globocan for Malignant neoplasms o Accept figures provided for male and female malignant neoplasms derived from Eurostat.

Suicide and intentional harm: o Accept figures provided for male and female suicide and intentional harm derived from Eurostat. To ensure that the health indicators collected by EURO-URHIS 2 can be used in practice, policy makers and public health experts were actively involved in the process of developing health profiles.
Their comments and advice were taken into consideration and were used to adapt and improve the urban area health profiles. The final health profiles can be downloaded from the website: www. The final urban area health profiles were released during the final conference on th September in Amsterdam. The health profiles are included as an attachment. All 26 health profiles can also be accessed through the website: www.
Each profile has been assigned a unique DOI. It can create echo chambers that leads us to believe that what you are seeing through ads is the only opinion or perspective that is right. If we DO like something presented to us as fact, even if it is false, we tend to believe it. Many offline communities are also segregated by political beliefs and cultural views.
The echo chamber effect may prevent individuals from noticing changes in language and culture involving groups other than their own. Ideological echo chambers have existed in many forms, for centuries. The echo chamber effect has largely been cited as occurring in politics. Some companies have also made efforts in combating the effects of an echo chamber on an algorithmic approach. The intended purpose of this was to expand the breadth of news sources for any given headline, and therefore expose readers to a variety of viewpoints.
There are startups building apps with the mission of encouraging users to open their echo chambers. This experiment adds a module at the bottom of Buzzfeed News articles to show reactions from various platforms, like Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit. This concept aims to bring transparency and prevent biased conversations diversifying the viewpoints their readers are exposed to.
