Utah Identified as a "Leader" for Using Data to Address Health Disparities

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) has identified eight states, including Utah, as leaders in terms of their analysis and/or inclusion of data from state and federal sources in strategic plans and reports to address health disparities.  The NASHP cites "Health Status by Race and Ethnicity 2010" which was created by the Utah Department of Health, Center for Multicultural Health, in collaboration with numerous other Utah Department of Health programs, as an example of noteworthy data analysis to address health disparities.

 To learn how Utah's strategies for analyzing and reporting racial and ethnic data compare to other states across the nation, see the full report: "State Documentation of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities to Inform Strategic Action."
