The overall purpose of this study was to determine causal associations and factors between the health of children and the neighborhoods, environments, and level of social economic status from which they live and mature. This study looked at the environment of the children inside and outside of the home and the place that social capital has within a child's health. It also looked at how family and social economic status are vital to the wellbeing of children. Findings in this study prove that an environment of poverty is correlated significantly with ill health in children. The loss of social capital and the physical environment of the home showed a significant correlation to the health of the child. The main limitation to the study is the bias of publications. Also, additional research and study of the topic are recommended.
