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): 
74 (2014)
Target: 
81
Target-Setting Method: 
10 percent improvement
Numerator: 

Number of measurable objectives tracked by a major Healthy People 2020 data source for which national data are released within 1 year of the end of data collection

Denominator: 

Number of measurable objectives tracked by a major Healthy People 2020 data source

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Adapted from HP2010 objective
Data Collection Frequency: 
Biennial
Methodology Notes: 

    Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) objectives are supported by data from over 200 federal and non-federal data systems, including the data systems of CDC/National Center for Health Statistics. This objective monitors the timeliness of HP2020 objectives tracked by major HP2020 data sources. A major HP2020 data source is defined as a data system that is used to monitor 10 or more HP2020 objectives. Approximately 750 of 1,300 objectives are tracked by a major HP2020 data source.

    “Timeliness” is defined as the release data to the public within 1 year of the end of data collection. The end of data collection is defined as the end date of the data cycle. For example, the end of data collection for NHANES 2011-2012 data was 12/31/2012. The data may be released to the public in a data file, in aggregate, or in a report, such as an MMWR.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 23-07 in that the numerator was revised from "Number of Healthy People 2010 objectives and lettered subobjectives tracked with major health data systems that release data to the public within 1 year of the end of data collection" to "Number of measurable objectives tracked by a major Healthy People 2020 data source for which national data are released within 1 year of the end of data collection" and the denominator was revised from "Number of Healthy People 2010 objectives and lettered subobjectives that are tracked by major health data systems" to "Number of measurable objectives tracked by a major Healthy People 2020 data source."
