    As the Agency for Health Research and Quality () notes, “racial and ethnic minorities are more likely than non-Hispanic whites to be poor or near poor,” so many of the data pertaining to subordinate groups is also likely to be pertinent to low socioeconomic groups. Given the disparities in health insurance coverage, resources to pay for care, and ready access to a clinic, perhaps it is not surprising that there are differentials in health by poverty status. The graph below shows that children up to age 18 and adults ages 18 to 59 show significant differences in health status by income.

    Specifically, Congress requested that the IOM: â ¢ Assess the extent of racial and ethnic differences in healthcare that are not otherwise attributable to known factors such as access to care (e.g., ability to pay or insurance coverage); â ¢ Evaluate potential sources of racial and ethnic disparities in health- care, including the role of.
