Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Population Level Covid-19 Mortality
Gross, C., Essien, U., Pasha, S. et al.. (2020). Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Population Level Covid-19 Mortality. Journal of General Internal Medicine. 35: 3097–3099.
The authors conducted a cross-sectional study using publicly reported Covid-19 mortality data from state websites as of April 21, 2020, to evaluate the completeness of race and ethnicity reporting in Covid-19 mortality data across states. They found “substantial variation in the completeness of race data across states” and advocate for improved data collection to better evaluate disparities and target public health and clinical interventions.
