Health Resources Administration (DHHS/PHS), Hyattsville, MD. Div. of Health Professions Analysis.
This report provides selected information on minorities and women working in the health fields or preparing for them as students in health professions schools. The report is in two sections. The first section consists of tables presenting educational and employment data for racial and ethnic minorities in the health fields, with accompanying text. The second section contains substantially the same information, classified by sex rather than by race and ethnicity. Each section begins with an overview and then presents and analyses statistics pertaining to the following areas of specialization: multidiscipline; allopathic medicine; osteopathic medicine; dentistry; optometry; pharamacy; podiatry; veterinary medicine; nursing; public health; and allied health. Altogether, 93 statistical tables are included in the main body of the report, most of them containing information on health school applications, enrollments, and degrees conferred. An appendix contains baseline data and a parity index. (KH)
