11/12 * Tabulating Race/Ethnicity: Implications for American Indian/Alaska Native High School Students

Zoom Event: Thursday, November 12, 2020, 1:00-2:00 pm EST

Center for Disease Control

The American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) population is at significant risk of misidentification in national surveillance instruments.  The implications of how race and ethnicity are tabulated affect (1) the accuracy and precision of health data and (2) public health planning and policy decisions. This study explored the impact of different tabulating strategies for race and ethnicity on the prevalence estimates, and precision of those estimates, for experiences with persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness, suicidality, and violence victimization among AI/AN high school students.

Presenters: Sherry Everett Jones, Health Scientist, CDC/NCHHSTP, Division of Adolescent and School Health; and Delight E. Satter, Senior Health Scientist, CDC/CSTLTS, Office of Tribal Affairs and Strategic Alliances
