Big IDEAs About Health Data: Guidance on Using Race & Ethnicity Data

Big IDEAS About Health Data


In June 2023, BC Stats released a Guide on Using Categorical Race and Ethnicity Variables to support anti-racism research in British Columbia. This tool will help users of administrative and survey data to appropriately and consistently incorporate race and ethnicity variables into their projects. In this session, you will learn more about the guide, the challenges and lessons learned in the process of developing it, and its implications for research in British Columbia.

Tatiana Kim is an applied social researcher and a program evaluator. She holds a Master of Arts in Applied Social Psychology and a Professional Specialization Certificate in Population Health Data Analysis. In her current role as a Manager of Anti-Racism Data Projects at BC Stats, she is part of the team supporting research that aims to understand and address systemic racism in government programs and services. Through this work, she hopes to make a difference in the lives of British Columbians and help build a community where researchers can exchange knowledge and ideas. Tatiana is grateful to live on the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, which is known today as Nanaimo, British Columbia.
