Abstract

This report provides information about major health indicators in the racial and ethnic minority populations of Rhode Island defined by the Office of Management and Budget (Directive 15) as: • African American/Black: A person having origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. • Asian and Pacific Islander (API): A person having origins in the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands. This area includes, for example, China, India, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, the Philippine Islands, and Samoa. • Hispanic/Latino: A person of Mexican, Puerto-Rican, Cuban, Central or South American or other Spanish culture regardless of race. • Native American/American Indian: A person having origins in any of the original people of North America and who maintains cultural affiliation through tribal affiliation or community recognition. • White: A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. This report presents data on socio-economic characteristics, morbidity and mortality, behavioral risks, infectious diseases, maternal and child health, and access to care among Rhode Island’s racial and ethnic minority populations in comparison to the White and the overall state population. Please note that race and ethnic status for some Health Department data sets are based on self-identification.
