About the National Data

Data

Baseline: 14.1 percent of adults aged 18 years and over had chronic kidney disease in 2013-16 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)

Target: 12.8 percent

Numerator
Number of adults aged 18 years and over with chronic kidney disease stages 1–4.
Denominator
Number of adults aged 18 years and over with measured urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR) and information to compute estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).
Target-setting method

Minimal statistical significance

Target-setting method details
Minimal statistical significance, assuming the same standard error for the target as for the baseline.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were not available for this objective. The standard error was used to calculate a target based on minimal statistical significance, assuming the same standard error for the target as for the baseline. This method was used because a minimal statistically significant improvement is expected. This conservative target is realistic to achieve because the objective aims to reduce prevalence of a chronic condition in an aging U.S. population with a high burden of risk factors. National efforts such as Million Hearts Initiative and the National Diabetes Prevention Program make this target realistic to achieve.
