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

09/01/2005

HP2010 had a high level of visibility across the responding health organizations. Overall, 83 percent of the respondent organizations were aware of the initiative. All of the responding states, 84 percent of the local health organizations, and 60 percent of the tribal health organizations reported awareness of the initiative. Tribes were statistically less likely to be aware of the initiative compared to both local and state health organizations (see Exhibit 18). Organizations with more FTEs were also more likely than smaller organizations to be aware of the initiative. This is not true when the size of the organization is measured in terms of the size of the populations served. Finally, geographical variations in the level of awareness did exist, with health organizations in the Midwest and South reporting higher levels of awareness than those in the Northeast and West. As Exhibit 18 shows, states and tribes in the South, as well as local health organizations in the Midwest had higher levels of awareness than their counterparts in other geographical regions. Also of note, tribal health organizations in the Northeast appeared less aware of HP2010, as did local health organizations in the West.
