The authors examined 21 major health data systems of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and concluded that data on Hispanics are not included in several Departmental national health data collection systems, and that even when collected, data on Hispanic subpopulations are found in few of the systems.
Of the 21 data systems, 6 do not collect Hispanic population data, including the Medicare statistical system.
Only the National Vital Statistics System was found to collect data for all major Hispanic subpopulation groups.
Seventeen of the 21 data systems do not collect sample sizes adequate for analysing any one of the four major Hispanic subpopulation groups.
