The Robert Graham Center has always had an interest in the role of geography in health care. From its earliest days, the Graham Center included geography in the research we conducted. Geography helps us to understand the context in which patients live; it helps us to better understand the distribution of the health care workforce; it helps us to evaluate medical education programs in terms of the areas in which their graduates practice.
The Robert Graham Center has compiled the Social Deprivation Index (SDI), which is a composite measure of area level deprivation.
