NPCT Stage 1

In Stage 1 of the project we have designed, developed and deployed on-line a public-facing Prototype for Three Cities (NPCT Prototype). This is now live at www.pct.bike This has a high quality and user-friendly interface, thanks partly to user-testing sessions with Local Authority transport planners and other key stakeholders. The tool is available with open-source […]

Public health modelling

Modelling is the simulation of a partial representation of a system. It can help us answer questions that no single empirical study can answer.Modelling enables us to estimate longer term and population wide health effects of interventions, integrate evidence from different domains, consider hypothetical ‘what if’ scenarios, and address issues of cost and cost-effectiveness. Modelling […]

Changing Commutes?

This project is part of the ESRC Secondary Data call.Analysis of Census 2011 data has shown has although cross- sectionally there is a strong correlation between cycling levels and gender (and to a less extent age) equity in cycling, increases in cycling have not been associated with improvements in gender equity and have seen a […]

Integrated Transport and Health Impact Modelling Tool (ITHIM)

Integrated Transport and Health Impact Modelling Tool (ITHIM)ITHIM refers to a range of related models and tools developed at CEDAR to perform integrated assessment of the health effects of transport scenarios and policies at the urban and national level. The health effects of transport policies are modelled through the changes in physical activity, road traffic […]

Modelling public health impacts of policies and scenarios

Modelling is the simulation of the effects of certain changes and circumstances, and it can help us answer questions that no one empirical study can answer. Modelling enables us to estimate longer term health effects of interventions, integrate evidence on different exposures, consider ‘what if’ scenarios, and address issues of cost and cost-effectiveness. Modelling can […]
