Race/Ethnicity Field on Child Demographic Screen

Susan Dunsmoor 7/30/09 On the Child Demographic Page in IMS, where it has "Ethnicity" under Gender - do we continue to enter something here or will we now be leaving this blank since we will be choosing the new Race/Ethnicity data?
Toni Van Cleve 8/4/09

Effective July 1, 2009, the Ethnicity field under Gender on the Child Demographic screen will now longer be used. In fact, it is a "read-only" field and you should no longer be able to enter data into this field. 

If you find that this "old" field still accepts a value or a change in a code, please contact Michelle. For information on the new Race/Ethnicity data collection, refer to the June 2, 2009 data entry personnel meeting notes which are posted at www.iowaidea.org.
