Commitment to promoting racial equity is a critical aspect of home visiting implementation quality. The question remains, however, how such a commitment can be measured.
This report presents a sample study design focused on preliminary steps that can inform development of measurable indicators for a commitment to promoting racial equity in home visiting. Related information includes—
- Overview of prior work on racial equity in the context of home visiting
- Design approach
- Measure development process, including conceptualization, operationalization, and pilot testing and refinement
- Practical considerations
- Use of findings
The report is part of a project conducted by JBA and Child Trends under the direction of the Health Resources and Services Administration and the Administration for Children and Families. Previous publications include a literature and measure review of quality considerations for home visiting implementation and a conceptual framework that includes commitment to racial equity as one of its “quality threads.”
