Focus on Healthy People 2010:

State Performance on Measures Reported in the NHQR

While Healthy People 2020 is the new initiative, the following NHQR measures are consistent with Healthy People 2010. Healthy People 2010 was a set of health goals intended to increase life expectancy, improve quality of life, and eliminate health disparities throughout the Nation. Launched by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2000, the goals provided Federal, State, and local government agencies and nongovernmental organizations with a framework for assessing progress in a comprehensive set of focus areas. Nineteen Healthy People 2010 measures, sorted by focus area, are shown in the following table; for each measure, the Healthy People 2010 target rate is compared to the most recent State rate and the baseline State rate.
