About the National Data

Data

Baseline: 13.2 per 1,000 adults aged 45 years and over had visual impairment due to glaucoma in 2017 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)

Target: 10.6 per 1,000 adults

Numerator
Number of adults aged 45 years and over with glaucoma, who have lost vision because of glaucoma.
Denominator
Number of adults aged 45 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 the projections were not statistically significant improvements from the baseline. 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 a statistically significant improvement from the baseline.
