Researchers have documented the extensive mental and physical health consequences of generalized violence exposure but few studies have analyzed the impacts of gun violence on community well-being using nationally comprehensive data. This presentation will discuss the results of an ongoing study on the reciprocal and longitudinal relationship between community gun violence exposure, concentrated disadvantage, and multiple aspects of collective health in nearly 16,000 neighborhoods across 100 U.S. cities.
