Rule Rule 943-070-0000

These rules establish uniform standards and practices for the collection of data on race, ethnicity, preferred spoken or signed and preferred written language, and disability status by the Oregon Health Authority (Authority) and Department of Human Services (Department). Standardized data collection methodology will improve the ability of the Authority, Department, community stakeholders, elected officials, and other decision makers to recognize, address, target and eliminate inequities experienced by distinct racial, cultural, and linguistic communities, and by people with disabilities. Based on local, state, and national best practices, these standards allow the Authority and Department to meet federal reporting expectations; compare Oregon’s progress with national trends; improve quality service delivery; and ensure equitable allocation of resources.
