Estimates are considered unreliable. Data preceded by an asterisk have a relative standard error (RSE) of 20%–30%. Data not shown have an RSE greater than 30%.

1

Starting with 2008 data, the sample of nonfederal short-stay hospitals was cut in half. This smaller sample size has increased standard errors. Therefore, caution should be exercised in interpreting trends in these data. See Appendix I, National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS).

2

Includes discharges for procedures not shown separately.

3

Estimates are age-adjusted to the year 2000 standard population using five age groups: 18–44 years, 45–54 years, 55–64 years, 65–74 years, and 75 years and over. See Appendix II, Age adjustment.

NOTES: Up to four procedures were coded for each hospital discharge. Starting with 2010 data, up to eight procedure codes were available on the file. To maintain comparability with previous years, the number of procedure codes for the 2010 data was limited to four codes. If more than one procedure with the same code (e.g., a coronary artery bypass graft) was performed during the hospital stay, it was counted only once (any listed). Procedure categories are based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–9-CM). See Appendix II, International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–9–CM); Procedure; Table XI for ICD–9-CM codes. Rates are based on the civilian population as of July 1. Starting with Health, United States, 2003, rates for 2000 and beyond are based on the 2000 census. Rates for 1990–1999 use population estimates based on the 1990 census adjusted for net underenumeration using the 1990 National Population Adjustment Matrix from the U.S. Census Bureau. Rates for 1990–1999 are not strictly comparable with rates for 2000 and beyond because population estimates for 1990–1999 have not been revised to reflect the 2000 census. See Appendix I, National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS); Population Census and Population Estimates. Data for additional years are available. See Appendix III.

Starting with 2008 data, the sample of nonfederal short-stay hospitals was cut in half. This smaller sample size has increased standard errors. Therefore, caution should be exercised in interpreting trends in these data. See Appendix I, National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS).

Includes discharges for procedures not shown separately.

Estimates are age-adjusted to the year 2000 standard population using five age groups: 18–44 years, 45–54 years, 55–64 years, 65–74 years, and 75 years and over. See Appendix II, Age adjustment.
