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 2013, the original baseline and baseline year were revised from 83.8 (2006) to 82.8 (2005) to make the baseline year and data consistent with IID-29 estimates. In addition, the revision incorporates new data that were not available at the HP2020 launch. The target was not revised. In 2015, 2005-2011 data were revised due to reporting delays. This revision occurs annually. The baseline of the total population and target remained the same.
