09/01/2005

1.DATA2010 is an interactive online database that includes the most recent national and selected state data for tracking the HP2010 objectives. 

2.The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services operates ten regional offices across the nation.  Each office is directed by a Regional Health Administrator.

3.The HP2010 program currently maintains an implementation toolkit. It is not clear from the survey data if respondents were unaware of this resource, or if they felt it did not meet their needs.

4 .For additional information on HealthierUS see http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/fitness/.

6.Excerpted from http://www.healthypeople.gov/Publications/Cornerstone.pdf.

7.The DATA2010 website is available at http://wonder.cdc.gov/data2010/.

8. In the cover letter, state health directors were asked to identify the most knowledgeable respondent at their organization. Initial phone calls were made to determine the name and contact information of this respondent, and to ensure his or her receipt of the questionnaire.

9.The Pearson Statistical Test of Correlation shows that these two measures of organization size (number of FTEs and population served) are highly, positively correlated, with r=.83. This is statistically significant at the p<.0001 level.

10.Organizations falling within the first quartile of the FTE distribution for the sample were categorized as “small.” Organizations falling between the first and third quartile were categorized as “medium,” and those falling above the third quartile of the distribution were categorized as “large.” The same method was used to categorize size in terms of the population served.

11.For additional descriptions of HealthierUS and HP2010 programs at the state, local and tribal level, please see Appendix 4.

12.One state did not provide an answer to this question; however the respondent went on to answer the HP2010 user’s questionnaire, so that state is counted as a user in the analyses.
