Healthy People 2000 Final Review: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives.
National Center for Health Statistics (DHHS/PHS), Hyattsville, MD.
This report completes the series of "Healthy People 2000 Reviews" published to monitor and evaluate U.S. progress toward year 2000 targets. It examines Healthy People 2000 goals (to increase the span of healthy life, reduce health disparities, and achieve access to preventive services); discusses health indicators and priority data needs; and examines sentinel objectives (national and state data). It also highlights progress in the 22 priority areas. For each area, there is a progress quotient chart, a discussion of objectives addressing the area's specific public health significance, data highlights, progress toward the objectives, major results, transition to Healthy People 2010, and data issues. Each area also includes a summary data table and the full text of the objectives. Overall, 68 of the 319 main objectives met the year 2000 targets, and another 129 showed movement toward the targets. Data for 35 objectives showed mixed results, and 7 showed no change. The status of 32 objectives could not be assessed. Many targets were revised during the midcourse review process, generally to make the target more challenging. Technical notes and tables comprise the appendix. (Chapters contain references.) (SM)
