    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    4.3 Limitations and future research opportunities: This study has several limitations, which pose opportunities for future research. This is an ecological study using aggregated data at the county level. It is subjected to ecological fallacy. Future studies can use individual level data or experimental studies to confirm the causal relations and the potential underlying mechanisms (Jiang et al., 2021). Second, the unit of analysis is the county due to the availability of COVID-19 mortality data and other confounding variable. Though county data are widely used in nationwide studies, future studies should use finer-grained data (i.e., census tract level data). Different scales of analyses may reveal different associations between neighborhood greenspace and health outcomes (Richardson et al., 2012). Third, our research investigated associations using data from 2020, but the situation has continued to evolve with the emergence of vaccines and COVID-19 variants (e.g., Delta and Omicron). Future studies should consider the new situations accordingly.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
