Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
For each state, points are assigned for the key components of graduated licensing. "Good" systems scored 6 or more points; "Fair" systems scored 4 or 5; "Marginal" systems 2 or 3; and "Poor" ones scored less than 2 points.
Regardless of point totals, no state was rated above "marginal" if intermediate license holders could be younger than age16 or if it allowed unrestricted driving before age 16 years, 6 months.
The following schedule was used to assign points:
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
In 2012, the original baseline was revised from 35 to 32 states due to a change in the methodology. The data year is now based on the effective date of the state law instead of the passage date. The target of 51 states did not change.
