Disaggregated race/ethnicity data is needed to expose health inequities and inform policies and programs to address those inequities. If you work with health data and want to increase population representation, we invite you to join in one or more of our technical assistance workshops to address barriers to disaggregation.
The National Network of Health Surveys, part of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, is offering a series of workshops designed to improve the disaggregation of race and ethnicity measures in health data sources. Our goal is to boost the number of subpopulation categories made available to key constituencies working to improve health equity. This is especially important for representing communities that are often “hidden” in large health data sets.
Survey leaders, health data managers, community groups and data users are encouraged to join us for expert-led sessions to work on the more pressing issues of disaggregation.
