Detailed 2013 Health Trends Assessment Table

This table includes all the information on page 5 in the printed report. In addition it includes a column for the difference (between observed and expected), 90% Confidence Interval values (around the current observed rate), and, where available, Current Observed Values for the best and worst performing states.


Current Observed Rate= Rate or percentage provided for the most current year from the data sources
Expected = Value expected for the current year using a 10-year linear regression model for the previous 10 years
Difference = Observed Value - Expected Value
Percent Difference = (Observed Value - Expected Value)/Expected Value*100
Current Progress = Based on direction and significance of the Percent Difference value (see page 3 of report or FAQs for cut-off values)
Best State Value = Value of the state performing the best on the measure for the current year (followed by state abbreviation)
Worst State Value = Value of the state performing the worst on the measure for the current year (followed by state abbreviation)
Baseline Trend = (e^b - 1)*100 where e=exponential function and b=slope of the logarithmic trend-line
Trend Progress = Based on magnitude of the baseline trend (see page 3 of report or FAQs for cut-off values)
Data come from source listed in the 2013 Progress Report (page 13) unless otherwise noted.
