percent
Baseline (Year): 
82.1 (2007)
Target: 
90.3
Target-Setting Method: 
10 percent improvement

Denominator: 

Number of adolescents aged 12 to 17 years who participate in one or more organized extra-curricular and/or out-of-school activities

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Not applicable
Questions Used to Obtain the National Baseline Data: 

    From the 2007 National Survey of Children's Health:

    [NUMERATOR and DENOMINATOR:]

    During the past 12 months, how often did you attend events or activities that [S.C.] participated in? Would you say never, sometimes, usually or always?:

    1. Never
    2. Sometimes
    3. Usually
    4. Always
    5. Don't know
    6. Refused
Data Collection Frequency: 
Periodic
Methodology Notes: 

    The indicator is based on the combined responses of parents who either usually or always attend the events and activities their adolescent participates in.

    Children with special health care needs are identified by parents’ reports that their child has a health problem expected to last at least 12 months and which requires prescription medication, more services than most children, special therapies, or which limits his or her ability to do things most children can do.

Trend Issues: 
The 2011/12 survey included the addition of cell phones to the sample. This has implications for the comparability of items between 2007 and 2011/12.
