Healthy People 2020 : an end of decade snapshot

Filetype[PDF-2.40 MB]

  • Description:
    Since its inception, Healthy People has relied on high-quality data to measure progress toward meeting national disease prevention and health promotion goals and objectives each decade. The initiative is unique among indicator initiatives led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services because it includes quantifiable objectives with numerical targets to be achieved over the decade. Healthy People 2020 included 1,318 objectives, spanning 42 Topic Areas. These objectives used data from about 230 different federal and nonfederal data sources, representing a variety of sectors. Of these 1,318 objectives, 84.3% (n = 1,111) were measurable, meaning they had a baseline value. This report focuses on the 985 trackable objectives, which include a target, baseline value, and at least one follow-up point during the decade. Of these objectives: • 33.9% (n = 334) met or exceeded their targets. • 20.8% (n = 205) improved. • 31.0% (n = 305) had little or no detectable change. • 14.3% (n = 141) got worse. This document presents similar analyses of progress by topic area, Leading Health Indicator, and key population subgroup, providing users with a high- level snapshot of progress achieved over the decade, as well as opportunities for improvement moving forward. More detailed analyses and health disparities data are forthcoming in the more comprehensive Healthy People 2020 Final Review, a quantitative end-of-decade assessment of progress in achieving the Healthy People 2020 objectives and goals, which is scheduled for release by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) by the end of 2021. In addition, all Healthy People 2020 data, including health disparities data, will be archived on the NCHS Healthy People website, Publication date from document properties. 21%20HP2020EndofDecadeSnapshot2.pdf
