IPUMS will be exhibiting at the 2022 Interdisciplinary Association for Population Health Science Conference. There are also two IAPHS workshops that may be of interest to IPUMS data users:
- Contextualizing inequities: Using IPUMS data to describe population-health inequities and study upstream socioeconomic and geographic determinants of health
September 20; 8:30-12:30PM CT
This workshop, led by senior IPUMS researcher staff, will review IPUMS data suitable for surveilling population-level health inequities and studying upstream socioeconomic and geographic determinants of health. Workshop leaders will describe the relevant IPUMS data, highlight their utility for exploring health inequities, and provide time for hands-on learning and discussion.
- Leveraging Academic-Community Partnerships to Advance the Measurement of Structural Racism in Health Equity Research
September 20; 1:00-5:00PM CT
This workshop, led by senior research staff at the University of Minnesota’s Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity, seeks to provide participants with a theoretical and analytic understanding of the methodologies often used to measure structural racism. The workshop will include opportunities to explore publicly available datasets (including IPUMS) to measure historical and contemporary manifestations of structural racism, a panel discussion led by community organizations about academic-community partnerships to advance structural racism research, and opportunities for attendees to collectively brainstorm ways to leverage existing data sources while centering community needs.
