What is FAIR?
FAIR specifically integrates community voices to identify and explore the architecture of disparities and the design of equity. This approach helps clarify the structural elements that lead to a community’s experience of inequity or adverse outcomes such as persistent poverty or health disparities. It can be applied to qualitative and quantitative research to capture factors impacting daily lives, and identify data, and models that would have otherwise remained unanticipated and hidden to those outside of the community. This approach also allows researchers to uncover unconscious biases and assumptions.
