Health Resources Administration (DHHS/PHS), Hyattsville, MD.
The tables and charts in this book act as resources for information on the health status of racial and ethnic minorities and the poor. The four minority groups referred to are blacks, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, and Asian Americans. The poor are defined as those whose income falls below the poverty line specified by the Census Bureau. Data are presented in five major categories: (1) demography--information on population distributions, mobility, education, employment, income, and family characteristics; (2) health status, covering life expectancy, mortality, infant mortality, self-assessment, disability, chronic limitations, notifiable diseases, and dental health; (3) utilization--information on physicians' visits, preventive care, access factors, hospital care, dental services, and psychiatric services, (4) manpower enrollment--statistics dealing with minority group members working or training as health care professionals; and (5) financial--data on insurance, health care payments, Medicare, and Medicaid.
