Healthy People Objective: Reduce the rate of new cases of end-stage renal disease (ESRD)

U.S. Target: 34.4 new cases per 100,000 population
State Target: 33.8 new cases per 100,000 population

Other Objectives

'''Healthy New Jersey Objective CKD-2''': Reduce the incidence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) per 100,000 population to 34.5 for the total population, 31.4 among Whites, 78.3 among Blacks, 21.1 among Hispanics, and 20.8 among Asians. '''Healthy New Jersey Objective CKD-3''': Reduce the incidence of diabetes-related ESRD among adults aged 18 years and older per 100,000 adult population aged 18 years and older to 19.4 for the total population, 16.2 among Whites, 47.0 among Blacks, 14.6 among Hispanics, and 13.7 among Asians.

How Are We Doing?

The Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective CKD-3 target for the Black population aged 18 years and older was achieved. No other targets for CKD-2 or CKD-3 were met.
