Advancing Health Equity: Statistics and Legislative Report

Advancing Health Equity: Statistics and Legislative Report

A statewide health assessment has found that not all people in Minnesota have the same chance to be healthy. People of color and American Indians, people with disabilities, people living in poverty, and members of the LGBTQ community have less opportunity for health and experience worse health outcomes in Minnesota.

This webpage houses the Advancing Health Equity in Minnesota: Report to the Legislature, 2014 (PDF) and provides links to health statistics reports and resources that support efforts to advance health equity. Additional information can be found in our Center for Health Equity.
