This article provides an overview of racial and ethnic disparities in health in the United States. It describes limitations linked to the quality and method of presentation of the available data. It also considers the complex ways in which immigrant status, race, and SES combine to affect health and outlines important directions for research that would enhance our understanding of the ways in which social factors can lead to changes in health status.
