Healthy Alaskans 2020: Survey two
The survey is now closed. Please check back soon for future announcements or subscribe to Healthy Alaskans text or email updates.
Healthy Alaskans 2020 is a statewide initiative with the goal of identifying 25 leading health indicators, or measurements, to guide health efforts in Alaska over the next decade. Your input is needed to help us achieve the vision: "Healthy Alaskans in Healthy Communities." This survey is the second in the year-long process to gather input about health priorities that are important to Alaskans. Results from Survey One helped to identify 71 potential leading health indicators. This survey will help to further narrow the potential leading health indicators down to 25.

Results from the first Healthy Alaskans 2020 survey are now available. Alaskans were invited to take the survey between Sept. 17 and Oct. 22, 2012 and provide information on health priorities in their lives and in their communities. The results were used to be used to formulate the next survey (opening January 15), and all of the information from these two surveys will help inform the process and guide health efforts in our state based on common health goals over the next decade.

Alaskans weigh in on health priorities
In this Alaska Health Status Progress Report, an overview of the Healthy Alaskans 2010 leading health indicators is provided and, where available, the data are updated to track progress. The most recent data available at the time of writing are provided for each leading health indicator. Generally, the Healthy Alaskans 2010 leading health indicators were selected to closely replicate the national indicators; however, in some cases alternative indicators were selected that were more relevant for Alaska. Over the decade, some of the indicators and measures were modified, due to improvements in questions on surveys or other reporting or analysis changes. These changes have been indicated on the summary sheets in this report.
Introducing Healthy Alaskans 2020
Healthy Alaskans 2020 is a joint effort between the State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, to set health goals for Alaska that contribute to the vision of Healthy Alaskans in healthy communities. The collaborative nature of this initiative will allow individuals in communities from all over Alaska to contribute information and ideas in every step of the process. Throughout the process, we will provide health status progress reports, as well as health planning and action tools for individuals, communities, and health professionals. By working together on these important health issues, we can help improve health for all communities in Alaska.
The process is just beginning and there will be many opportunities for participation along the way. Please continue to monitor this site for updates on how to get involved.
Healthy Alaskans in healthy communities.
Provide a framework and foster partnerships to optimize health for all Alaskans and their communities.
