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 not available for this objective. 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 statistically different from the baseline.
Comparable HP2020 objective
Modified, which includes core objectives that are continuing from Healthy People 2020 but underwent a change in measurement.
Changes between HP2020 and HP2030
This objective differs from the related Healthy People 2020 objectives in that it is a composite of objective MHMD-11.1, which tracked primary care physician office visits where adults aged 19 years and over were screened for depression, and MHMD-11.2, which tracked primary care physician office visits where adolescents aged 12 to 18 years were screened for depression.
