TU-20.1 Increase the number of States and the District of Columbia with comprehensive evidence-based tobacco control programs

About the Data: National

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

Data Source: 
State Tobacco Activities Tracking and Evaluation System (STATE); Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC/NCCDPHP)
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
count
Baseline (Year): 
10 (2009)
Target: 
51
Target-Setting Method: 
Total coverage
Numerator: 

Number of states and the District of Columbia that meet 100% annual CDC recommended expenditures for comprehensive evidence-based tobacco control programs - OR- that have increased total expenditures for comprehensive evidence-based tobacco control programs by 25% or more since 2008.

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

    In the STATE System, comprehensive evidence-based tobacco programs are equal to a state’s ability to meet the CDC Recommended Expenditures for the Total Recommended Program Costs as outlined in CDC’s 2007 and 2014 ‘Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs.’

    Each state must meet the annual total recommendation to be considered comprehensive. In the STATE System, “comprehensive” is measured as having Expenditures as a Percentage of CDC Recommended Level reported at 100% or higher for each year.
    OR-
    Throughout the decade, states that have increased the Total Amount of Expenditures by 25% or more from the baseline will also be considered to meet the Healthy People 2020 goal.
    In the STATE System, “total expenditures” is measured as having the Total Amount ($) of Expenditures increasing from the baseline by 25% or more throughout the decade.

    The table below describes which years of expenditures will be compared with the respective Best Practices recommendations.

  • 2008 2007

  • Expenditure data were obtained from online searches of state audit and budget reports and published in the State Tobacco Activities Tracking and Evaluation (STATE) System. The data were also collected from documents within a state’s health department or other agencies’ Web sites pertaining to the administration, management, and use of state tobacco control funds. To complement online searches, key public health personnel in each state were contacted. The first point of contact was usually the director or head of the tobacco control division.

    When multiple agencies were involved with tobacco control initiatives, each of those agencies, including education departments and Master Settlement Agreement (MSA)-funded foundations, were contacted. If after repeated requests, neither a response nor assistance was offered, a formal Open Records Request was filed. These requests were filed with the associated office of administrative counsel within the agency or body overseeing that state’s tobacco control program.

    For data from 2000–2011, the state funding cycle is the state's fiscal year.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective is the same as Healthy People 2010 objective 27-18a. However, the objective was developmental at the Healthy People 2020 launch due to modifications to the measurement of the objective.
