Healthy People DATA2010

DATA2010 is an interactive database system developed by staff of the Division of Health Promotion Statistics at the National Center for Health Statistics and contains the most recent monitoring data for tracking Healthy People 2010. Data are included for all the objectives and subgroups identified in theHealthy People 2010: Objectives for Improving Health. DATA2010 contains primarily national data. However, state-based data are provided as available.

Healthy People 2010 contains 467 objectives that identify specific measures to monitor health in the first decade of the 21st Century. Each objective includes a statement of intent, a baseline value for the measure to be tracked, and a target to be achieved by the year 2010. Objectives may include more than one measure. Each measure is shown separately in the database. Data for the population-based objectives may be presented separately for select populations, such as racial, gender, educational attainment, or income groups. The objectives are organized into 28 focus areas, each representing an important public health area.
