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 with first-listed diagnoses not shown in table.

3

Shown for women only.

NOTES: Excludes newborn infants. Diagnostic categories are based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–9–CM). See Appendix II, Diagnosis; Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease; International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–9–CM); Table X for ICD–9–CM codes. Additional data and diagnosis categories are available from: http://www​.cdc.gov/nchs/hdi.htm. Data for additional years are available. See Appendix III.
