Geographical location

Geographical location can influence health status.

For instance, within urban locations, there is often a clear divide between higher income and lower income populations which can result in higher rates of mental illness and addictions and a lack of social support which can increase susceptibility to injury.

Those living in rural areas have other risks which can lead to injury, including, less access to health services, which affects the outcome of injury. Moreover, motor vehicle incidents are also more likely in rural areas due to longer distances when driving and poorer road conditions.
