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 of the variability in data from year to year.
Comparable HP2020 objective
Retained, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 with no change in measurement.
Effect size h=0.1 was chosen to correspond with 10% improvement from a baseline of 50%.
