Putting Men’s Health Care Disparities On The Map: Examining Racial and Ethnic Disparities at the State Level

A new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that in almost every state men of color continue to fare worse than white men on a variety of measures of health, healthcare access and other social determinants of health. The report documents the persistence of disparities between white men and men of color—and among different groups within men of color—on 22 indicators of health and well-being, including rates of diseases such as AIDS, cancer, heart disease and diabetes, as well as insurance coverage and health screenings. It also documents disparities in factors that influence health and access to care such as income and education. This new analysis provides state-level data for men of many racial and ethnic populations that have not been available before.
