Target-setting method

Minimal statistical significance

Target-setting method details
Minimal statistical significance, assuming the same standard error for the target as for the baseline.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective, but it was not possible to project a target because the trend was moving away from the desired direction. The standard error was used to calculate a target based on minimal statistical significance, assuming the same standard error for the target as for the baseline. This method was used because the Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts expected minimal improvement in the next decade.

History

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 AOCBC-1 in that objective AOCBC-1 tracked the mean level of joint pain while this objective tracks severe and moderate joint pain.
Revision History
Revised. 

In 2022, due to the 2019 NHIS redesign, the baseline was revised from 56.8% in 2014 to 55.3% in 2019. The target was revised from Projection to Minimal statistical significance. The target was revised from 53.1% to 52.1% using a different target setting method.
