About the Data
Number of population-based Healthy People 2020 objectives that report estimates by race and ethnicity
Number of measurable population-based Healthy People 2020 objectives
Population-based Healthy People 2020 objectives are defined as objectives where the denominator is a population estimate.
Objectives are counted in the numerator if data are reported by the six racial and ethnic categories provided in the updated OMB Directive No. 15 “Standards for the Classification of Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity”: (1) American Indian or Alaska Native, (2) Asian, (3) non-Hispanic Black or African American, (4) Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, (5) non-Hispanic White and (6) Hispanic/Latino.
The Healthy People 2020 database (DATA2020) is queried to determine the number of objectives that meet the numerator and denominator definitions.
