Title of Collaborative Activity:

U.S. Burden of Health Disparities Working Group

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Through this project, the U.S. Burden of Health Disparities Working Group at NIH aims to generate a landmark and comprehensive report and public platform with data on U.S. Burden of Health Disparities by Race/Ethnicity, Sex, Age, Socioeconomic Status and Geography. The project entails producing detailed county-level estimates of disease burden stratified by race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status (SES), age, and sex for a vast array of diseases, injuries and risk factors. The report would include a broad set of measures of the burden of disease (e.g., disability-adjusted life years and healthy life expectancy). This project would result in a platform for downloadable, publicly available data review and visualization tools for extracting information on these stratified analyses at the county-level for every U.S. county. CDC/NCVS is providing guidance on vital statistics data, algorithms and procedures used to generate life expectancy estimates, etc., by race/ethnicity.
