Theoretical Foundation: We selected Caspi’s adaptation of Penchansky and Thomas’s 1981 model (Caspi 2012) as a starting point, though consider accessibility to also encompass presence and number (counts) of food outlets within a given area based on prior studies (e.g., Apparacio 2008; Talen and Anselin 1998).
