State of Equity Report

The State of Equity report is intended to be an online living document regularly updated and expanded through ongoing research and the evaluation of data. Its purpose is to illuminate the effect of Department of Human Services and Oregon Health Authority practices on the diverse racial and ethnic populations served by the agencies' programs. The report is a description of outcomes for racial and ethnic populations based on the need for DHS and OHA services and programs. Outcomes include access to and utilization of services and programs, customer service quality and the long-term effects of accessing services and programs viewed through the lens of race and ethnicity in Oregon.

The information in these reports will be used for policy and program development and as a baseline to measure the agencies' progress toward eliminating disparities.

Community Responses to the State of Equity Report

OEI is continuing to convene the communities experiencing disparities to partner with OHA and DHS to identify and advance policies and programs to improve outcomes.

Resources: Additional Racial and Ethnic Data

Demographic Data: To better understand the population characteristics and potential needs of DHS and OHA clients, we explored the availability of demographic data for communities of color in Oregon.
Local Diversity: A racial and ethnic diversity map of the state was created to reflect how diversity varies by geography. Selected counties are also shown.
