For verifying the correlation, this study measures health-friendly environmental condition and population health separatedly, and then analyze a correlation between them. While population health is measured with health behavior, disease morbidity, mental health, and health perception, health-friendly environmental condition is measured with institutional support, built environmental condition, civic participation in health exercise, and social environmental condition. As a result of correlation and t-test analyses, there were significant correlations between population health and health-friendly environmental condition. Specifically, areas with better conditions of environments had healthy conditions for citizens. This study contributes to better understanding the conditions of health with perspective of urban and regional planning.
