Healthy People 2000: an assessment based on the Health Status Indicators for the United States and each state.


The Health Status Indicators (HSIs) were developed as part of the Healthy People 2000 process to facilitate the comparison of health status measures at national, State and local levels. In this report, the number of HSIs where the national target has been attained and the number of HSIs that have improved significantly are enumerated for the United States, the District of Columbia, and each State. Based on data for 1998, the United States had attained targets for 6 of the 17 HSIs with national targets. Twenty-three States had attained targets for 9 or more of the HSIs and 37 States had either attained the target for, or had made significant progress on, at least 12 of the indicators. Substantial progress has therefore been made since the Healthy People 2000 National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives were published in 1991.
