Assessing Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in HealthSana Loue, Case Western Reserve University, ClevelandWhere there are patients, clients, or study participants, there are data. And when data involve personal variables of race, ethnicity, gender, and/or sexual orientation, questions of relevance and marginalization often arise. Assessing Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in Health brings needed clarity to the debate by identifying the ethical issues as well as the technical challenges inherent in measuring these elusive concepts.Sana Loue expands on her work begun in Gender, Ethnicity, and Health Research by paralleling the evolution of racial and sexual categories with the development of health research. Her review of the literature clearly explains when and why the use of classification systems may be both clinically and morally appropriate. In addition, Loue provides a salient guide to assessment tools currently used in measuring racial and sexual constructs, identity, and experience.Overview of categories in their sociopolitical contextSelf-definition vs. definition by others: methodological considerationsReview of the overlapping roles of race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation in health, health care, and health care disparitiesSelected measures for assessing ethnicity, ethnic identification, and levels of acculturationSuggested dimensions for assessing sexual orientationCurrent diagnostic criteria for gender identity disorderGiven the prevalence of ethnic- and gender-based data collection throughout the health and mental health fields, this book's usefulness is not limited to the research community. Physicians, therapists, social workers, and sociologists will find this clear-minded volume an important source of instruments-and insights.
