Race & Ethnicity
The 4CE Consortium acknowledges that characterizing the significance of race and ethnicity in the COVID-19 pandemic is essential. In an effort to produce rapid results, sites initially mapped their local race/ethnicity ontology terms to the US-based NIH race categories. While this standardization gives us a broad sense of race and ethnicity across the 4CE Consortium, it cannot address the complex social and genetic relationship between race/ethnicity and illness on a global scale. We recommend early-phase race data only be included in analysis for U.S. sites at this juncture. Future iterations of our data will include country-specific race and ethnicity categorizations to more accurately, rather than broadly, capture this information.
