Assessment of the Uses and Users of Healthier US and Healthy People 2010. Awareness

09/01/2005

Overall, awareness of the HealthierUS initiative was high among the study’s respondents, especially given that the program is in the early stages of implementation. Fifty-three percent of the 235 respondents reported that they were aware of the HealthierUS program. However, this figure does not convey significant differences between the awareness of several different types of organizations. Exhibit 6 shows the variation between types of organizations along these different dimensions. Many of the type, size, and regional differences were statistically significant at the p≤.05 level. States were significantly more likely than local or tribal health entities to be aware of the initiative. There was no statistical difference in awareness between the geographic locations of the organization. Finally, when measured in terms of the number of full-time employees (FTEs), larger organizations10 were more likely to be aware of HealthierUS than smaller organizations. Organizations serving a larger population were also more likely to be aware of the initiative; however results were only significant at the p≤.10 level.
