Summary

Although race is one of the most important social determinants of health care and outcomes in the United States, missing data on race/ethnicity is common in the VAMC. Therefore, the primary objective of this project is to understand collection and analysis of missing race/ethnicity data in the VA. We aim to better understand the patient perspective and attitudes surrounding race/ethnicity collection, and obtain information in order to inform collection methods.
