Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
In 2012, the original baseline was revised from 80.6 to 79.6 due to a change in the baseline year from 2006-2008 to 2006-2010. The target was adjusted from 88.6 to 87.6 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method. In 2019, the objective wording was updated from sexually active to sexually experienced to more accurately reflect the data.
