Target-setting method

Projection

Target-setting method details
Linear trend fitted using weighted least squares and a projection at the 25 percent prediction interval.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective. Using historical data points, a trend line was fitted using weighted least squares, and the trend was projected into the next decade. This method was used because three or more comparable data points were available, the projected value was within the range of possible values, and a projection at the 25 percent prediction interval was selected because no additional information could be used to assess the trend line, so a statistically significant target was selected.

History

Comparable HP2020 objective
Modified, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 but underwent a change in measurement.
Changes between HP2020 and HP2030
This objective differs from Healthy People 2020 objective AOCBC-1 in that objective AOCBC-1 tracked the mean level of joint pain while this objective tracks severe and moderate joint pain.
