Health Disparities

Health disparities may impact various disadvantaged groups in society, including:

  • Racial and ethnic minorities
  • Women
  • People with low income or low education
  • Homeless individuals
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons
  • People with disabilities
  • People living in rural areas

Our research focuses on people with disabilities, many of whom also belong to one or more of the other categories listed above. Our research compares people with disabilities to those without disabilities, and also examines subgroup differences within the population of people with disabilities.
