The National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Reports (NHQDR) focuses on “prevailing disparities in health care delivery as it relates to racial factors and socioeconomic factors in priority populations” (Research on Health Disparities Act, 1944, as cited in Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, n.d.). Its website offers comprehensive information regarding health care quality and disparities in each state for the general public, health care professionals and institutions, policymakers, and legislators.
