This article highlights methodological approaches that will move the field forward in its ability to validly measure structural racism for the purposes of achieving health equity. The authors identify three key areas that require scholarly attention to advance anti-racist health policy research: historical context, geographical context, and theory-based novel quantitative and qualitative methods that capture the multifaceted and systemic properties of structural racism, as well as other systems of oppression.
