Abstract

This article examines the spatial and temporal patterns of unattended swimming pools and determined the effect of neighborhood deterioration on odds of a pool being unattended in New Orleans, Louisiana, from 2006 to 2008. The results indicate that traditional variables associated with neighborhood deterioration (e.g., vacant houses, properties with major structural damages) do not provide as robust an explanation for presence of unattended pools in the study area. This suggests that neighborhood demographics and underlying preexisting characteristics of neighborhood conditions influence unattended pool presence rather than the physical deterioration of neighborhoods, to which unmaintained pools contribute
