Measuring and tracking health disparities among various subgroups in the population may be useful in assessing a nation's health. Such ability to track crucially depends upon suitable data measuring various diseases and outcomes. This talk will focus on three measures of quantifying health disparity and multiple data sources with different measurement and response properties to track race/ethnic disparity in diabetes over a ten year period. Treating one of these data sources as preferred, methods to calibrate other data sources to reduce bias and improve statistical efficiency will be explored.
