Methodology Notes

Starting with the 2012 survey, the name of the SHPPS survey was changed from the School Health Policies and Programs Study to the School Health Policies and Practices Study.

The nurse-to-student ratio is the number of school nurses divided by the total student enrollment. One school nurse is defined as 30 nurse-hours per week per school.

Total student enrollment of all the schools included in SHPPS is obtained from the Quality Education Data (QED) database. QED’s National Education Database covers all educational institutions in the United States and Canada.

This objective is adapted from the Healthy People 2010 objective 7.4a, which traced the proportion of junior and senior high schools that had a full-time registered nurse-to-student ratio of at least 1:750.

High school completion is the percent of persons aged 18 to 24 years not currently enrolled in high school who report that they have received a high school diploma or the equivalent (such as a General Education Development (GED) certificate), regardless of the type of credential.

States are able to report in 3-year averages only. For States with small populations, the 3-year estimates may be unreliable.

Methodology Notes

The National Profile of Local Health Departments study is designed to develop a comprehensive and accurate description of local health department infrastructure and practice. For the National Profile of Local Health Departments study, National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) distributes an extensive questionnaire to every local health department (LHD) in the U.S. Hawaii and Rhode Island were excluded from the study, because state health departments operate on behalf of local public health and have no sub-state units. LHD is defined as “an administrative or service unit of local or state government concerned with health, and carrying some responsibility for the health of a jurisdiction smaller than the state.” Community-based organizations (CBOs) include local health departments, tribal health services, nongovernmental organizations, and multiple State agencies.

The 2008 study is the fifth in the Profile series. Prior studies were conducted in 1989-90, 1992-93, 1996-97, and 2005. The next Profile survey will be fielded in 2010. Beginning with the 2005 Profile, the study instrument included a core set of questions that was administered to every LHD and three modules, each of which was administered to stratified random samples of LHDs. Samples for the modules were stratified by population size served by the LHD. The question used to obtain the estimates for this objective is in the core questionnaire. Since 2005, the Profile has been administered in a web-based format, with a link to each LHD’s on-line questionnaire distributed via e-mail. The 2008 Profile’s survey instrument was fielded for about six months and 2,332 LHDs responded with an 83.4 percent response rate.

This objective is modified from Healthy People 2010 Educational and Community-Based Programs objective 7-10 which tracked the proportion of Tribal and local health service areas or jurisdictions that have established a community health promotion program that addresses multiple Healthy People 2010 focus areas. It has been expanded in Healthy People 2020 to nine objectives addressing population-based primary prevention services, i.e., injury, violence, mental illness, tobacco use, substance abuse, unintended pregnancy, chronic disease programs, nutrition, and physical activity.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020
This objective was moved from the Healthy People 2010 Access to Quality Health Care Chapter. Healthy People 2010 objective 1-7a tracked the proportion of MD-granting medical schools that offer competencies in counseling for health promotion and disease prevention. Four additional objectives addressing core competencies in MD-granting medical schools, i.e., evaluation of health sciences literature, environmental health, public health systems and global health, have been added to Healthy People 2020.
