Performance Measures

MCHB developed 41 national performance measures and several program performance measures across many maternal and child public health areas. The performance measures are assigned by the MCHB programs based on the applicability of the performance measures to the current program. For each assigned performance measure, the grantees provide annual objectives and annually report the indicators against these objectives. This reporting allows grantees and MCHB to track progress in achieving their goals.

Performance measures are either percentage-based or scale-based measures. Percentage-based measures use numerators and denominators to generate the annual indicator, while scale-based measures use data collection forms to generate the annual indicator.

Performance measures may be viewed by the specific performance measure or the programs reporting on a performance measure. Select either performance measure or program to view the performance measure data.
