Racial Equity Data Road Map: Data as a Tool for Ending Structural Racism

The Racial Equity Data Road Map is not a toolkit or one-size-fits all approach. Instead, it is a living document that outlines a number of steps for using data that have been piloted and tested within MDPH as one part of our journey towards achieving racial equity. As such, while the sections are presented in a way that is hopefully easy to follow, there is no set order in which they should be followed. Instead, users of the Road Map can move through the document at the pace and in the manner that makes the most sense for the program or issue being addressed, taking into consideration funding requirements, approval processes, and decision-making structures as needed.
