Educational Equity / Analyzing Disparities¶
We are just beginning a project to analyze educational equity int he Hartford, CT region. We will post our analyses as we complete them.
In the meantime, we are looking for examples of using Weave to bring to light inequities in access to quality education an din educational outcomes. Just list your community with an "h3." before it and add you input below that.
Contact me if you want to send anything or connect to discuss this: Jim Farnam firstname.lastname@example.org
Health Disparities / Health Equity¶
A number of OIC sites are working on health equity issues and how to inform them with better data and its visualization.
The Connecticut Data Collaborative is partnering with the legislatively created CT Commission on Health Equity ( http://www.ct.gov/cche/site/default.asp? ) to present a range of data for Connecticut towns and "health reference groups" (groupings of towns with similar social determinants that allows reasonably reliable aggregation of the BRFSS survey data over time). We will be including a link soon to an organized presentation of about 400 files form the earlier effort tat we are making available through our platform.
In CT also, the CT Association of Directors of Health ( http://www.cadh.org/ ) has created a Health Equity Index (http://www.healthequityalliance.us/ ) which correlates social determinants with health outcomes down to small geographic areas.
