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 it was a statistically significant improvement from the baseline.

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 D-4 in that the data source for objective D-4 was the National Hospital Discharge Survey (which is no longer conducted), while the data sources for this objective are the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project-Nationwide Inpatient Sample (HCUP-NIS) and the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS).
