About the National Data

Data

Baseline: 25.5 percent of children aged 3 to 11 years, nonsmoking adolescents aged 12 to 19 years, and nonsmoking adults aged 20 years and over were exposed to secondhand smoke in 2013-16 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)

Target: 17.3 percent

Numerator

Denominator
Number of children, nonsmoking adolescents, and nonsmoking adults aged 3 years and over.

Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective, but it was not possible to project a target because the projection was a negative value and not realistic. A percentage point improvement was calculated using Cohen's h effect size of 0.2. This method was used because an accelerated decline was expected based on the trend data.

History

Comparable HP2020 objective
Modified, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 but underwent a change in measurement.
Changes between HP2020 and HP2030
This objective differs from the related Healthy People objectives in that it is a composite of objectives TU-11.1, TU-11.2, and TU-11.3, which tracked exposure to secondhand smoke among children aged 3 to 11 years, adolescents aged 12 to 17 years, and adults aged 18 years and over, respectively.
