Equity Data: Where Are the Gaps?

Equity Data: Where Are the Gaps?

By: Alexandra de Leon Date: March 22nd, 2022

Equity and Data have always been important principles of injury and violence prevention. But are we truly collecting data that provides an accurate picture of equity or do we have gaps in the data collection?

Only through equitable data collection can we develop tailored and culturally resonant interventions to prevent injury and violence across our communities.

The University of Washington’s Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center (HIPRC) recently released the “Equity Gaps in Injury and Violence Data Across Seattle, King County, Washington State, and Pacific Northwest Region” report. While this report is specific to the Pacific Northwest region, it has implications for other regions that are assessing whether current data collection systems are sufficient to capture data on equity.

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at 9:00 am (PT) for a webinar presenting HIPRC’s report of findings, followed by a facilitated discussion among participants. This webinar is open to ALL Regional Networks. The recording is available here.
