Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Potentially Preventable Hospitalizations, 2003: Statistical Brief #10.


Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Statistical Briefs [Internet]. Rockville (MD): Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (US); 2006-.
2006 Jul.


This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on the rate of hospitalization for conditions that might have been prevented with high quality primary and preventive care. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Prevention Quality Indicators (PQIs) are used to develop hospitalization rates for select chronic and acute conditions, as well as one birth outcome among four racial and ethnic groups—non-Hispanic whites, blacks (non-Hispanic), Hispanics, and Asian-Pacific Islanders (non-Hispanic). The results are presented as the hospitalization rate of the racial/ethnic group relative to the hospitalization rate for non-Hispanic whites. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
