Journal Article
In this essay, authors highlight the importance of democratizing data for NHPIs — diverse populations that historically have had little access to their data — in the context of achieving equity in health and the social drivers of health. Authors provide a framework for evaluating community accessibility of data, which includes concepts of data availability, salience, cost, and report back.

Policy Brief
To better understand the mental health needs of the Black population in California, authors of this study used five years of pooled data (2017 to 2021) from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) to evaluate differences between Black adults as a single population versus Black adults as multiple populations with diverse racial and ethnic identities.

Journal Article

Summary: Women of color and immigrant women are more likely than U.S.-born white women to report mistreatment and poor quality of care during their reproductive health care. Surprisingly, little research exists on how language access may impact immigrant women's experiences of maternity care, particularly by race and ethnicity.

Researchers conducted qualitative in-depth, one-on-one semi-structured interviews from August 2018 to August 2019 with 10 Mexican and eight Chinese/Taiwanese women living in Los Angeles or Orange County who gave birth within the past 2 years. Interviews were transcribed and translated, and data were initially coded based on the interview guide questions. Authors identified patterns and themes using thematic analysis methods.

This fact sheet provides an overview of key state and national child health facts to inform work that needs to be done to make California the best state to raise healthy, thriving children. The design and implementation of data collection systems often neglect to include Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) community expertise, and as a result, NHPI data are insufficiently or inaccurately collected, aggregated together with Asian American (AA) data, or not collected at all.

Journal Article
The United States has 2 types of degree programs that educate physicians: allopathic and osteopathic medical schools. Authors determine whether quality and costs of care differ between hospitalized Medicare patients treated by allopathic or osteopathic physicians. Patients studied were a 20% random sample of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries hospitalized with a medical condition during 2016 to 2019 and treated by hospitalists.

Journal Article
This study aimed to identify the smoking prevalence among Chinese immigrants and explore associations between their current smoking behaviors and demographic factors, psychological distress, and health utilization factors. Inclusion criteria were applied to extract data from the 2016 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS); 650 eligible Chinese immigrant respondents were included in the sample. Independent variables were extracted based on the Integrated Model of Behavioral Prediction.

Journal Article
Immigration enforcement policies are associated with immigrants' barriers to health care. Current evidence suggests that enforcement creates a "chilling effect" in which immigrants avoid care due to fear of encountering enforcement.
