About the National Data
Data Source: National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), CDC/NCHS
Baseline: 4.3 percent of adults 18 years and over with visual impairment used vision rehabilitation services in 2017
Target: 6.2 percent
Persons who respond "yes" having trouble seeing and use any vision rehabilitation service meet the criteria for this objective.
Because Healthy People 2030 objectives have a desired direction (e.g., increase or decrease), the confidence level of a one-sided prediction interval can be used as an indication of how likely a target will be to achieve based on the historical data and fitted trend.
