Recommendations for Measuring Structural Racism in Chicago

On September 7, 2016, Health & Medicine staff attended a meeting jointly hosted by the Center for Community Health Equity and Health & Medicine’s Health Equity Initiative, to help advise the Chicago Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) Department of Epidemiology on how to both accurately and reliably measure experiences of racism in Chicago. The recommendations and notes in this report are intended to help advance CDPH’s work toward accurately measuring racism, and ultimately aiding in the process of confronting structural racism and advancing toward achievement of health equity in Chicago.
