Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Women’s Health Coverage and Access to Care

Using data from the 2001 Kaiser Women’s Health Survey, a nationally representative survey of nearly 4,000 women between the ages of 18 to 64, this issue brief explores racial and ethnic disparities in health care among women. It provides new information on the differences in health status, health insurance coverage, and selected measures of access to care across three racial/ethnic groups of women: African American, Latina, and white.
