The 2009 Connecticut Health Disparities Report
The 2009 Connecticut Health Disparities Report compares leading indicators of health status and health access for racial or ethnic minority populations relative to the White population of Connecticut. These analyses are presented in the context of current social and economic conditions affecting health outcomes. The development of this report was supported by a grant from The Connecticut Health Foundation to The Connecticut Department of Public Health from 2006 to 2008, known as The Connecticut Health Disparities Project.
The 2009 Connecticut Health Disparities Report is divided into five major sections. Part I provides a brief discussion of health disparities, race and ethnicity, and selected social determinants of health disparities. A general description of the state’s social and economic context is presented, and summary background information is provided for Connecticut’s racial and ethnic populations. Part II provides data and narratives for selected health indicators of Connecticut’s populations. Part III focuses on health disparity populations for whom there is little or no consistently-reported health data (e.g., homeless persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic subpopulations, or sexual and gender minorities). Part IV summarizes and discusses the report findings, and Part V provides supporting material for the report.
