Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective:
Adapted from HP2010 objective
Data Collection Frequency:
Caveats and Limitations:
Estimates were calculated with data supplied by states that had adopted the 2003 version of the U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth. Trends over time cannot be evaluated until all states implement the 2003 Standard Certificate and provide data in the same format.
Estimates for 2007 are based on 22 states (representing 53 percent of all U.S. births), excluding AL, AK, AZ, AR, CT, GA, HI, IL, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NV, NJ, NM, NC, OK, OR, RI, UT, VA, WV, WI, DC, and New York City.
Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020:
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 16-17c in that the data for objective 16-17c came from the 1989 edition of the standard certificate of live birth which collected less detailed information on maternal smoking than does the 2003 edition of the standard certificate (the source for this objective).
