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 survey methods changed, and the historical data were no longer comparable. The Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts expected a conservative increase based on the trend of historical data for this measure before the survey methods changed. While Healthy People targets are applicable at the national level, this target will remain more stable when calculating targets by state.

Methodology

Methodology notes

The respondent is the parent or guardian who knows the most about the child's health.

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 EMC-2.2 in that there is a break in trend due to the 2016 redesign of the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH). The definition is otherwise the same.

1. Effect size h=0.1 was chosen to correspond with 10% improvement from a baseline of 50%.
