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 it was a meaningful improvement from the baseline. Increasing employment facilitates better health outcomes and a smaller effect size may reflect substantial improvements.
Comparable HP2020 objective

Changes between HP2020 and HP2030
This objective differs from Healthy People 2020 objective DH-16 in that the objective DH-16 tracked employment among persons with disabilities while this objective tracks employment among working-age persons.
