About the National Data

Target-setting method

Percent improvement

Target-setting method details
10 percent improvement from the baseline.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were not available for this objective. A 10 percent improvement from the baseline was used to calculate a target. This method was used because given the increase seen in case counts in data from the Healthy People 2020 objective, the Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts selected a more conservative target.


Comparable HP2020 objective
Retained, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 with no change in measurement.
