Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine
  • Social science

Her primary areas of study are Economic inequality, Demography, Environmental health, Social determinants of health and Public health. Her research on Economic inequality frequently links to adjacent areas such as Income distribution. Nancy A. Ross interconnects Body mass index, Socioeconomic status and Gerontology in the investigation of issues within Demography.

Her research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Menopause, Case-control study and Credible interval. Her Social determinants of health research incorporates elements of Risk of mortality and Social environment. As a part of the same scientific study, Nancy A. Ross usually deals with the Public health, concentrating on Health care and frequently concerns with Survey data collection, Nursing and Family medicine.

Her most cited work include:

  • Is Income Inequality a Determinant of Population Health? Part 1. A Systematic Review (712 citations)
  • Relation between income inequality and mortality in Canada and in the United States: cross sectional assessment using census data and vital statistics. (406 citations)
  • The determinants of First Nation and Inuit health: a critical population health approach. (254 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Demography, Environmental health, Gerontology, Public health and Population health. Her Demography research integrates issues from Odds ratio, Obesity, Quartile, Proportional hazards model and Socioeconomic status. Her work carried out in the field of Environmental health brings together such families of science as Nitrogen dioxide, Health care, Incidence and Walkability.

Her study focuses on the intersection of Gerontology and fields such as Body mass index with connections in the field of Confidence interval. Her work on Social environment expands to the thematically related Public health. Her Population health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Quality of life and Demographic economics.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (24.46%)
  • Environmental health (23.74%)
  • Gerontology (19.42%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Active living (7.19%)
  • Walkability (12.23%)
  • Obesity (10.07%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of investigation include Active living, Walkability, Obesity, Environmental health and Demography. Her Active living research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Public health surveillance, Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient, Public transport and Cluster analysis. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Odds and Gerontology.

Her study on Self-rated health is often connected to Mental health as part of broader study in Gerontology. Nancy A. Ross combines subjects such as Odds ratio, Logistic regression, Retrospective cohort study and Public health with her study of Demography. The study incorporates disciplines such as Proportional hazards model and Air quality index in addition to Public health.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The association between walkable neighbourhoods and physical activity across the lifespan. (15 citations)
  • A pan-Canadian measure of active living environments using open data. (12 citations)
  • Assessing the micro-scale environment using Google Street View: the Virtual Systematic Tool for Evaluating Pedestrian Streetscapes (Virtual-STEPS). (6 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Social science
  • Internal medicine

Nancy A. Ross focuses on Active living, Walkability, Reliability, Environmental health and Audit. Her research brings together the fields of Geographic information system and Active living. Her studies in Geographic information system integrate themes in fields like Public health surveillance, Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient, Public transport and Cluster analysis.

Her Reliability study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Traffic calming, Transport engineering and Cohen's kappa. Her research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Community health and Environmental health. Nancy A. Ross incorporates Open data and Cartography in her research.
