Data Collection and Reporting

This case study describes the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE) work to change the narrative and framing of population health data to emphasize the importance of structural inequities and social determinants of health. CDPHE is also working to incorporate equity metrics into program evaluations and performance monitoring and use boilerplate language regarding equity in CDPHE publications.
