This chapter argues that the challenge of ethnicity and health research includes demonstrating tangible health benefits in addition to satisfying curiosity. The full range of public health science research methods — qualitative, case-histories, case series, analysis of routine statistics, case control studies, cohort studies, trials — and medical sciences, are potentially applicable to ethnicity and health. Topics discussed include a brief history of health research on ethnicity and race with a racist intent or outcome; lessons from racist research; the potential scientific benefits of studying ethnic variations in health and disease; and the strengths and weaknesses of the range of methods available for the study of ethnic variations in health and disease.
