Data Notes
Race, regardless of Hispanic ethnicity. 2000 race data was bridged back to the "primary race" status to match the way the race question was asked in the 1990 Census. Data from the 2000 U.S. Census indicate that in 2000, Pacific Islanders comprised about 29% of the "Asian/Pacific Islander" group in Utah.

Why Is This Important?
Our current health system was developed based on the needs and perspectives of the White/Anglo-American Utah culture. As a result, Utahns of other cultures often experience barriers to receiving culturally sensitive and appropriate health care. Because of this and other social factors (e.g., proportion of workers in "blue collar" jobs without health benefits, lack of trust in the health care system), the health status of non-Anglo ethnic groups is often poorer than that of the mainstream population. Reducing racial and ethnically-based health disparities is an overarching goal of the U.S. Public Health Service's Healthy People 2010 initiative.
