APIAHF conducted an extensive literature search online to identify AA and NHPI data sources in the five states where the community coalitions were located: Arizona, Georgia, New York, Ohio, and Texas. The inclusion criteria for data sources that were evaluated include reporting: 1) health outcomes, physical or mental; 2) health care access and utilization; or 3) social determinants of health (e.g.,income, education, and English language proficiency). Data sources were compiled from websites of various government agencies, community-based organizations, research centers, and universities across these states. Most of the 112 data sources APIAHF identified were online publications (91%), and
only a small number of them were online data query systems (8%) and presentations (1%). Many of the data sources provided little specific information about the data used, failing to report, for example, sample sizes and languages used in administering the surveys.
