About the National Data

Data

Baseline: 7.3 percent of adults aged 50 years and over had osteoporosis in 2013-14

Target: 5.5 percent

Numerator
Number of adults aged 50 years and over with a femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD) value less than or equal to 0.56 gm/cm2.
Denominator
Number of adults aged 50 years and over.
Target-setting method

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 evaluated for this objective, but it was not possible to project a target because recent data suggested an increase or leveling off in osteoporosis prevalence. 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 the Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts expected the data to continue to be difficult to change, so a conservative target was selected.

Methodology

Methodology notes

Between five and six indicators are used to measure the quality of a system of care for CSHCN aged 0-17 (depending on age): Families of children and youth with special health care needs partner in decision making at all levels and are satisfied with the services they receive; Children and youth with special health care needs receive coordinated Updated: Ongoing comprehensive care within a medical home; Families of CSHCN have adequate private and/or public insurance to pay for the services they need; Children are screened early and continuously for special health care needs; Community-based services for children and youth with special health care needs are organized so families can use them easily; A child is considered to be served by a "service system," as described in the Healthy People objective, if his or her care met all relevant criteria for his or her age. For children from birth through age 17 years, the first five outcomes were included; an additional outcome related to health care transition planning is included only for children aged 12 through 17 years. Children with Special Health Care Needs are identified using the CSHCN Screener3, which consists of five questions concerning common health care consequences experienced by CSHCN.
