Demographic data standards
The Minnesota Department of Health, in cooperation with state and community partners, is working to develop an inclusive and representative standard for demographic data collection. You will find documents here related to the standard, as well as supporting documents for coding and analysis, and best practice methodologies for data collection. As MDH incorporates these standards into the work provided, this page will also update the community on the pace of adoption.
