Percentage point improvement
Target-setting method details
Percentage point improvement from the baseline using Cohen's h effect size of 0.10.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were not available for this objective. A percentage point improvement was calculated using Cohen's h effect size of 0.1. This method was used because the Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts anticipated an upward trend in preventive health care visits in order to promote health and decrease health risks among the adolescent population. This target aligns with the Health Resources and Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau guidance for all objectives derived from National Survey of Children's Health data.
Comparable HP2020 objective
Modified, which includes core objectives that are continuing from Healthy People 2020 but underwent a change in measurement.
Changes between HP2020 and HP2030
This objective differs from Healthy People 2020 objective AH-1 in that objective AH-1 used data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) to track the receipt of a wellness checkup among children and adolescents aged 10 to 17 years while this objective uses data from the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) to track the receipt of preventive care among adolescents aged 12 to 17 years.
