Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health:
During the past 12 months, how often did you feel that the school work you were assigned to do was meaningful and important?
Students are considered to feel that their assigned school work was meaningful and important during the past 12 months if they answered 'always' to the numerator question listed.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
During regular data collection and processing checks, errors were identified in the NSDUH data. These errors affected the data for Pennsylvania (2006-2010) and Maryland (2008-2009). These errors had minimal impact on the national estimates and no effect on direct estimates for the other 48 states and the District of Columbia. Comparing estimates for Pennsylvania, Maryland, the mid-Atlantic division, and the Northeast region were of most concern. As a result in 2013, the baseline value was revised from 26.6% to 26.4%. The target was adjusted from 29.3% to 29.0% to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method.
