2008 Nov.


This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on characteristics of hospital stays related to the treatment of lung cancer in 2006. Characteristics of stays for lung cancer are compared to all non-maternal, non-neonatal hospitalizations. Differences by age, gender, payer, and region are also investigated for principal and secondary lung cancer diagnoses. Additionally, common principal diagnoses and procedures associated with lung cancer-related stays are outlined. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
