Data Collection Frequency: 
Annual
Methodology Notes: 

    Data are submitted using Form 6 of the Title V Block Grant application submitted annually by all states and the District of Columbia well as Territories.

    As such, estimates reflect data from 59 states and jurisdictions. While the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) traditionally presents data for 50 States and DC, an exception was made to remain consistent with published reports of these data.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 16-20b in that objective 16-20b remained developmental throughout Healthy People 2010. Since that time a data source has been identified and this objective is measurable.
