Data on Health and Well-being of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Other Native Americans. Data Sources by Subpopulation Coverage

12/01/2006

The 68 data sets included in this catalog vary in the way AI/AN/NA individuals are identified. Race is directly self-reported by the respondents or the respondents' legal guardian (if the focal respondent is a minor) in 35 of these studies. Twenty-eight of these studies obtain race information from administrative records (e.g., enrollment forms, patient files). Five of the data sets do not identify AI/AN/NA individuals.

Although there is some variation in the categories used to identify AI/AN/NA individuals, the majority of the studies in this catalog use the broader categories "American Indian or Alaska Native" and "Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander." These broad categories meet the minimum racial classification standards set by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)(8) . Table 2 below lists the data sets by the subpopulation coverage for the American Indian or Alaska Native racial category, while Table 3 lists the data sets by the subpopulation coverage for the Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander subcategory.
