What is 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
Healthy People 2010:
Objectives for Improving Health.
DATA2010 contains primarily national data. However, state-based
data are provided as available.
All data in DATA2010 are the most recent available and may include
revisions or corrections. Therefore, some data may differ from
data previously shown.
DATA2010 is updated quarterly. Updates include new data years, and possibly revisions to baseline data.
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.
How to access DATA2010
DATA2010 is accessible through CDC Wonder, an internet system that
provides a single point of access to a variety of CDC reports,
guidelines, and statistical databases. The address for DATA2010 is:

Information included in
This interactive system allows users to query an up-to-date database and
construct tables. Tables can be constructed for specific objectives
or for objectives identified by focus area, or by select population.
Tables can also be constructed for the Steps to a Healthier US
measures and the Leading Health Indicators. Each table includes a
short title, baseline data, target, any available updates, and data
source, for each objective.
Objectives are listed
by number, e.g., 01-05 or 27-13, where the first number refers to the
focus area and the second refers to the sequential order of the objective
within the focus area. Some objectives include several measures, or
sub-objectives. These sub-objectives are denoted with a lowercase letter
following the objective number, e.g., 27-05a, 27-05b, etc.
National data are
available for all of the measurable objectives. State data are
available for a subset of the measurable objectives. Socio-demographic
data tabulated separately by race, Hispanic origin, gender, education or
income, and selected other populations are available for all population-based
If data are not
presented in a specific data cell, one of four entries is shown.
DNA indicates that data have been collected but have not yet been analyzed.
DNC indicates that data are not collected by the data system used to monitor
the objective. DSU indicates that data do not meet the criteria for
statistical reliability, data quality, or confidentiality and therefore
data are suppressed. NA indicates that the table entry is not
applicable for the objective. Any notes about data issues will
appear at the end of the table. Following the data issues, the data
sources for each of the objectives are listed by objective number.
How to construct data tables
Custom data tables can be created using any of the first six main menu
options. By clicking on one of the options, users can obtain data
for a single health objective, for all objectives within a focus area,
for all objectives tracked by a particular data system, or for all
objectives that target a specific population group (e.g., women,
adolescents, or Hispanics). Users can also obtain data for the
measures used to track the 10 Healthy People 2010 Leading Health
Indicators or the DHHS Steps to a HealthierUS measures.
Advanced Selection Options
Selecting the 'Include advanced selection options in the table' will
create a table in a form which allows: data exportation, graph creation,
linking to detailed source information, linking to baseline revisions,
and linking to objective operational definitions.
Existing Spreadsheets and Technical Information Selecting 'Objective
Operational definitions by Focus Area' will provide a list of operational
definitions for each Healthy People 2010 measure. Age adjustment
groups for Healthy People age-adjusted measures and ICD 10 codes for
cause-specific Healthy People mortality objectives are delineated with
great detail in DATA2010. Published data spreadsheets are also
available for the Healthy People 2010 Focus Areas, Steps to a HealthierUS
measures, and Leading Health Indicators. Additional information about
each function is available in DATA2010 by selecting the More Info link
adjacent to the field of interest.
