Linear trend fitted using weighted least squares and a projection at the 25 percent prediction interval.
Trend data were evaluated for this objective. Using historical data points, a trend line was fitted using weighted least squares and the trend was projected into the next decade. This method was used because three or more comparable data points were available, the projected value was within the range of possible values and a projection at the 25 percent prediction interval was selected because the proportion of persons with health insurance has steadily increased since 2010. The Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts viewed this as an ambitious yet achievable target assuming current trends continue for the next decade.
Retained, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 with no change in measurement.
