Data Collection and Reporting

This study conducted an analysis of COVID-19 hospitalizations in 12 states — Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia, and Washington — to look at correlations between COVID-19 hospitalizations and race/ethnicity. These 12 states were chosen because they report race and ethnicity in hospitalization data. Results show a variation of racial disparities by state, which highlights the need for increased data reporting and consistency across all states.
