White J, Greene G, Dunstan F, Rodgers S, Lyons RA, Humphreys I, John A, Webster C, Palmer S, Elliott E, Phillips CJ, Fone D - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: Multilevel models will examine change in mental health and social cohesion between Communities First and control areas, adjusting for individual and household level confounding factors.Further models will examine the effects of (1) different types of intervention, (2) contamination across areas, (3) length of residence in a Communities First area, and (4) population migration.We will carry out a cost-consequences analysis to summarise the outcomes generated for participants, as well as service utilisation and utility gains.

BMJOPEN2014006530F1: The 47 Communities First intervention lower super output areas (LSOAs) and 63 control LSOAs in Caerphilly County Borough (Wales, UK).

Mentions: Data have been collected from 4426 participants aged 18–74 years on 31 May 2001 who responded to the 2001 and 2008 waves of the Caerphilly Health and Social Needs Electronic cohort study.16 The prospective controlled quasi-experimental study involves a comparison of the 1773 (40%) participants living in 47 LSOAs that received Communities First interventions between the two waves of data collection, with 2653 participants living in 63 LSOAs that did not receive any interventions (control areas; see figure 1).
