Health and Health Care in the U.S. by Race and Ethnicity

Disparities in health and health care remain a persistent challenge in the United States, resulting in inequities, limiting overall improvements in quality of care and health, and resulting in unnecessary costs. Disparities occur across a broad range of dimensions, including race/ethnicity. Using the most recently available data across a range of data sources, these infographics provide data on demographics; health coverage, access, and utilization; and health outcomes by racial and ethnic group, including Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders, and American Indians and Alaska Natives, relative to Whites.
