Target-setting method

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 evaluated for this objective, but it was not possible to project a target because the projection was too ambitious when the most recent data points were considered. A percentage point improvement was calculated using Cohen's h effect size of 0.1. This method was used because the objective was expected to move in the desired direction during the next decade and the Healthy People 2030 Workgroup Subject Matter Experts wanted to achieve a balance between an ambitious yet achievable goal.
