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: 
The objective was moved to measurable in 2013. The data source for this objective was changed from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) to the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System (NHBS) because the number of men who have sex with men (MSM) interviewed in NSFG is too small to stratify the data.
