Applying Self-report Measures in Minority Health and Health Disparities Research



  • In this chapter, we describe key measurement issues related to the use of self-report measures among health disparity populations. We summarize methods to assess the appropriateness of specific self-report measures for use in specific diverse populations, then describe resources to guide the selection of self-report measures in minority health and health disparities research. We provide an overview of methodological issues involved in adapting and translating measures for diverse populations. Finally, we discuss future directions for expanding the availability of self-report measures to better understand and identify effective strategies for reducing health disparities and optimizing the health and well-being of minority populations.
