This fact sheet provides a brief overview of racial disparities in health status among men of different races in the United States. It draws findings from the report, Putting Men’s Health Care Disparities On the Map, which uses national data sources from multiple years to generate state-level estimates on a range of indicators of health status, access, and well-being for men of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Women and men of different races and ethnicities not only have distinct health-related experiences, but these experiences can differ by geography. Despite the striking variation in the health status and chronic condition rates found in cross-state comparisons that stratify by race and gender, these analyses are often difficult to find.
