Performance Improvement 2001. Data Analysis and Support for the President's Initiative on Race


The President's Advisory Board on Race submitted a report of its deliberations to the President in the Summer of 1998. A "chart book" on the state of race relations formed the introductory chapter(s) of the Advisory Board's report. In addition, the White House commissioned the National Academy of Sciences to prepare detailed summaries of the research literature related to race and health. To support the Department's Initiative to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health community demonstration grant program, the project will identify relevant departmental data systems and perform preliminary analyses to support the grant program.
