Resumen

Social determinants of health (SDOH) impact 80% of health outcomes from acute to chronic disorders, and attempts are underway to provide these data elements to clinicians. It is, however, difficult to collect SDOH data through (1) surveys, which provide inconsistent and incomplete data, or (2) aggregates at the neighborhood level. Data from these sources is not sufficiently accurate, complete, and up-to-date. To demonstrate this, we have compared the Area Deprivation Index (ADI) to purchased commercial consumer data at the individual-household level. The ADI is composed of income, education, employment, and housing quality information. Although this index does a good job of representing populations, it is not adequate to describe individuals, especially in a healthcare context. Aggregate measures are, by definition, not sufficiently granular to describe each individual within the population they represent and may result in biased or imprecise data when simply assigned to the individual. Moreover, this problem is generalizable to any community-level element, not just ADI, in so far as they are an aggregate of the individual community members.
