Coffey RM, Andrews RM, Moy E. Medical care. 2005;43:I48-57.

The 2000 Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) collected patient safety indicator data from hospitals in 16 states. Data were reviewed to determine whether racial and ethnic differences in events disappear when income is introduced as a factor. The results indicate discrepancies in care for specific populations.
