Abstract

Purpose: There are limited data on the relationship between neighborhood level factors and their association with lung health independent of individual socioeconomic status. We sought to determine whether baseline neighborhood level socioeconomic deprivation in young adults is associated with greater 20-year decline in lung function and higher risk of future lung disease, independent of baseline individual income, education, and smoking status. Methods: This multicenter population-based cohort study included 2689 participants in Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) for whom neighborhood deprivation was determined at year 10 (baseline for study) and who had complete lung function measurements at years 10 and 30. Baseline neighborhood deprivation was defined using 1990 Census blocks as a combination of 4 factors involving median household income, poverty level, and educational achievement. The outcomes were decline in lung function over 20 years (year 10 to 30) and odds of emphysema (year 25). Results: In multivariable regression models, greater baseline neighborhood deprivation was associated with greater decline in lung function (−2.34 mL/year excess annual decline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) in the highest versus lowest deprivation quartile (P =.014)). Furthermore, baseline neighborhood deprivation was independently associated with greater odds of emphysema (odds ratio [OR] 2.99, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.42-6.30). Conclusions: Residence in neighborhoods with greater socioeconomic deprivation in young adulthood, independent of individual income and smoking, is associated with greater 20-year decline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second and higher risk of future emphysema.
