Developing Nationwide Exposures to Assess Geographic Differences in Diabetes Incidence: Tales from the Diabetes LEAD Network

The Diabetes Location, Environmental Attributes, and Disparities (LEAD) Network is a CDC-funded collaboration across several sites, concerned with understanding the role of community-level factors in the geographic differences in diabetes incidence and prevalence across the US and across demographic groups. Of primary interest to the Network is understanding the association of neighborhood socioeconomic environment with diabetes onset, and the impact of a variety of mediators on this relationship. The Data Coordinating Center at Drexel has led development of a number of measures to be used in this analysis. In this talk, I will describe the challenges of developing national exposure measures and some of the statistical issues that arise when doing so.
