Health Disparities Methodology

2011 Health Disparity Methodology Meeting
The Health Disparities Subcommittee, in collaboration with CDC, convened an in-person meeting in May 2011 to discuss and propose an epidemiologic method that is practical and useful for local/state/tribal epidemiologists to analyze currently available public health datasets for racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities. The main purpose of this meeting was to agree on methodologic guidance that will enable most local, tribal, and state health departments to geocode relevant disease data and combine them with census tract data to analyze for socioeconomic and racial/ethnic health disparities and compare across jurisdictions. More information can be found in the short and detailed meeting summaries.

Activities fall primarily within the areas of surveillance and geocoding. For more information about the Disparities Subcommittee and its activities, please contact Jessica Wurster. Click here to view other Cross Cutting Steering Committee activities.
