Minority Health Data


Public health and medical experts agree that better data and better data collection are essential if we are to fully understand, and eliminate, health disparities. Complete, accurate and consistent data can help us better identify and serve at-risk populations. Data can show how disease prevalence, quality of treatment, and health outcomes differ from one community to another. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of health programs as well as track progress in eliminating disparities.
