The IPUMS Contextual Determinants of Health (CDOH) provides access to measures of disparities, policies, and counts, by state or county, for historically marginalized populations in the United States. This initial release includes contemporary measures primarily focused on 2015 to 2020.
CDOH supplies data files designed for use in spreadsheet applications (e.g., Microsoft Excel) or statistical software (e.g., R, Stata, SPSS, SAS).
CDOH is one of several IPUMS data integration projects housed with the Minnesota Population Center at the Institute for Social Research & Data Innovation at the University of Minnesota. The CDOH project is a partnership between the Minnesota Population Center, the Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity at the University of Minnesota, and the Center for Family and Demographic Research at Bowling Green State University.
CDOH is funded by grants from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Office of the Director, and National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities as part of the Social, Behavioral & Economic COVID Coordinating Center at Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).
