2020 Target Methodology

The 2020 targets are based on the methodology used by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2020 initiative. In most cases the targets are calculated as a 10 percent improvement over the U.S. average from a base year, typically 2007-2008. In cases where national data from certain sources was not available or reliable, Nevada data was used as the baseline.
