Table 5 output from step one models: regressions of overall green cover on chronic morbidity (*, ** and *** indicate significance at p < 0·05, 0·01 and 0·001 respectively). Parameters exhibiting negative beta values imply an inverse association with area-level chronic morbidity and, therefore, predict better health
