Ethnicity, Race, and Health in Multicultural Societies

This chapter argues that the challenge of ethnicity and health research includes demonstrating tangible health benefits in addition to satisfying curiosity. The full range of public health science research methods — qualitative, case-histories, case series, analysis of routine statistics, case control studies, cohort studies, trials — and medical sciences, are potentially applicable to ethnicity and health. Topics discussed include a brief history of health research on ethnicity and race with a racist intent or outcome; lessons from racist research; the potential scientific benefits of studying ethnic variations in health and disease; and the strengths and weaknesses of the range of methods available for the study of ethnic variations in health and disease.

Keywords:   ethnic groups, health research, research methods, case series, racist reasearch
