Researching Cultural Groups

How do I find out which cultural groups are represented in my selected community?

Start by searching for your community in these two resources from the U.S. Census Bureau:

Or ask members of the community--for example, call the local public library and ask which cultures are most heavily represented among its patrons.

How do I find basic information about the cultures in my selected community?

Before you can make inferences about the health needs of a particular culture, you might need some general information about the culture itself. For example, a particular cultural group's beliefs about women might have an influence on women's health care needs in the community.

How can I find the availability of goods and services in my selected community?

How many grocery stores are in the neighborhood, and how does this compare to the number of liquor stores? How far away is the nearest health clinic, and is it accessible by public transportation?

The easiest way to find this type of data is to use Google Maps; simply type what you're looking for; e.g., "pharmacies in 21223" or "supermarkets near Dundalk, MD."
