The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) and the Office of Minority Health (OMH) have announced the release of a new health disparities data widget. The widget provides an easy way to find health disparities data related to the Healthy People 2020 objectives for the Leading Health Indicators (LHIs). LHIs are critical health issues that when addressed will help reduce the leading causes of death and preventable illnesses.
The widget provides charts and graphs of disparities data at your fingertips. The widget data can be browsed by:
- Disparity type, including disability, education, income, location, race and ethnicity, and sex; and
- Leading Health Indicator.
This new tool will help to inform research community about issues related to health equity.
