About HD*Calc


The Health Disparities Calculator (HD*Calc) is a statistical software designed to generate multiple summary measures to evaluate and monitor health disparities (HD).  HD*Calc is produced by the Surveillance Research Program and the Applied Research Program (the predecessor of the Healthcare Delivery Research Program), which are under the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences.  HD*Calc was developed and updated in consultation with McGill University's Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health, Georgetown University’s Department of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Biomathematics, and University of Maryland at College Park’s Joint Program in Survey Methodology and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
