Air pollution poses major threats to children's health and learning, making exposure at school particularly critical. However, some children are more exposed than others, especially depending on the socioeconomic status of their school’s neighbourhood. In this seminar, Risto Conte Keivabu presents his research where he geocoded addresses of approximately 23,000 elementary and middle schools in Italy. He also created an indicator of school socioeconomic status (SES) using fine-grained information on the real estate value made available by the Italian Observatory of Real Estate Value. He discusses his methods and findings in this seminar, with comments from Giovanna Scarchilli.
