Documentation of environmental indicators attributed to participants based on home location grid references.
Measures of residential greenspace exposure were estimated for England residents using the 2005 Generalised Land Use Database for England (Department for Communities and Local Government, 2007). This provides data on land use distribution for 2001 Census Output Areas in England, and is consistent with previous related research (Alcock et al., 2014; White et al., 2013b). Data on natural environment were also linked using CEH 2007 Land Cover Map data (Morton et al., 2011), since these were available for the whole of GB, and hence the entire UKB sample, and also have been used in related research (Wheeler et al., 2015).
