    Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch

    The objective was moved to measurable in 2013. The data source for this objective was changed from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) to the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System (NHBS) because the number of MSM interviewed in NSFG is too small to stratify the data.
