Abstract:
The goal of this project is to evaluate the utility of adding a variable to the TBI Model Systems National Dataset that would identify the geographic location of a persons residence at follow-up. With this identifier, researchers could access a wide array of information about the environment and tie it to Model Systems data about outcome. In this way, we can begin to better understand the complex person-environment interaction which influences long-term outcome
