Annotation:
This study used a geodemographic database with 1999 census block group population estimates and neighborhood descriptors in the United States to examine patterns of neighborhood type based on National Priorities List (NPL) site classification by activity and waste type (for example, manufacturing, mining). The authors found block groups described as "Military Quarters" are at highest risk of being located near an NPL site. Other distinct neighborhood differences are described.
