Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch

In 2013,the original baseline was revised from 3.0 to 2.7 due to a change in programming. The target was adjusted from 3.3 to 3.0 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method. In 2014 due to a methodology change in NSDUH's calculation of estimates, the baseline was recalculated from 2.7 percent to 3.3 percent. This change affected the target, which was set for a 10 percent improvement. In 2014 the target was also revised from 3 percent to 3.6 percent.
