Baseline and Target revisions

For various reasons, some of the Healthy People 2010 baseline data published in November 2000 in Healthy People 2010: Objectives for Improving Health, have been revised.  There were six possible reasons for NCHS to make changes to previously published baseline figures.

      revised methodology: modifications to specific algorithms Revised methodology: Modifications to the specific algorithms used to generate the baseline data were necessary for some objectives.

      Data for demographic groups updated to the same year data as main objective Updated to objective baseline year:  Data for demographic groups in the data templates for population-based objectives that were from an earlier year than the baseline for the main objective have been updated to the same data year as the main objective.

      data no previously anlayzed updated Data previously not analyzed:  The data templates for some population-based objectives did not contain data for the some of the subpopulation categories although the data had been collected. The data have now been analyzed and the designations of "DNA" (for "data not analyzed") have been replaced.

      data entry error amended Data entry error:  Data for a few objectives were changed because the original figures were transcribed incorrectly from the source documents.

      preliminary analysis data updated with final Published based on preliminary analysis:  Baseline figures based on preliminary analysis from less-than-final data files have been updated using the final data files.

      Potential sources for developmental objectives were updated New data source:  Potential sources for developmental objectives were updated to reflect more current information.
