dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to evaluate factors influencing states' success in reaching the goals of Healthy People 2000, National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives. Scholarly literature supports three factors that influenced states' success in reaching Healthy People 2000 goals. The three factors are gubernatorial power, health expenditure per capita, and policy liberalism. To determine the effects these three factors had on Health People 2000, a multiple regression testing the impact of the three factors was run. The results of the study show that only policy liberalism effects states' success in reaching Healthy People 2000 goals. The relationship between the number of goals achieved and state policy liberalism was positive. This research study is helpful in guiding politicians, administrators, and health professions by showing them what factors do and do not affect states' success in reaching national health goals.en_US
