    Abstract

    There is a growing body of literature on the effect of neighbourhood socioeconomic characteristics on individuals’ health and wellbeing. The substantial growth of understanding in this area benefits much from the advent and access to multilevel analysis, which enables the disentangling of effects of individual- and neighbourhood-level factors. In this seminar multilevel analyses based on two population-based, representative samples from Hong Kong and Taiwan will be presented. The Hong Kong study investigated the association of neighbourhood socioeconomic factors with individuals’ life satisfaction and happiness. The Taiwanese study examined the association of neighbourhood socioeconomic factors with individuals’ use of alcohol, tobacco, betel nut, and illicit drugs. Limitations and implications of the findings will be discussed.
