PHI-8.1 Data Details

Expand All

PHI-8.1 Increase the proportion of Healthy People 2020 objectives that have at least one data point

About the Data

Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.

Data Source: 
Healthy People 2020 Database
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
percent
Baseline (Year): 
81 (2014)
Target: 
97
Target-Setting Method: 
Projection/trend analysis
Target-Setting Method Justification: 
We propose to set targets for PHI-8 using the projection target setting method. Looking at archived data from Healthy People 2010, we found that 88% of objectives had at least one data point; 76% of objectives had at least two data points; and 60% had data updates at regular intervals. Aiming to improve the availability of data from the previous decade by at least 10%, we propose to set PHI-8 targets as 97% of objectives having at least one data point; 84% of objectives having at least two data points; and 66% of objectives that are tracked at least every 3 years.
Numerator: 

Number of Healthy People 2020 objectives with at least one data point

Denominator: 

Number of Healthy People 2020 objectives (measurable, developmental, and archived objectives)

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Not applicable
Data Collection Frequency: 
Periodic
Methodology Notes: 

    The Healthy People 2020 Database (DATA2020) will be queried to determine the number of objectives that meet the numerator and denominator definitions.

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, this objective became developmental. In 2014, this objective became measurable. The data source name was revised to reflect the name of the data source (Healthy People 2020 Database (DATA2020), CDC/NCHS), rather than the process of obtaining data (Assessment of Objective Data Availability (AODA), CDC, NCHS).
