Abstract:

In an effort to document health disparities among ethnic and racial groups, the Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) engaged the Bureau of Health Informatics at the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) to assemble data on Missouri's Hispanic population. A similar report, compiled in 2005, presented findings on health disparities among Missouri's Hispanics, African Americans, and whites based on key health indicators. The current publication provides an update to the 2005 baseline report. Where possible, the current document makes note of trends in health indicators to illustrate where progress has been made and what challenges may lie ahead.
