  1. Fulltext. US national health data on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders : a research agenda for the 1990s.

    Article - En anglais



    In spite of over 30 years of periodic nationwide surveys, we have thus far only the most rudimentary estimates of the determinants of the health of Asian Americans and Pacifics Islanders.

    This paper explores ways to improve the capability of the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) to collect national health data on these populations.


    The NCHS « race » coding practices are reviewed, their limitations stated, ways to improve the numerator and denominator data discussed, and a research agenda presented.
