This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on hospitalizations among the near-elderly (patients 55 to 64 years old) in 2007. Specifically, near-elderly hospital stays are compared with other adult hospitalizations and differences in utilization and patient characteristics are examined by insurance status. Additionally, this report provides information about the types of diagnoses most often associated with near-elderly hospitalizations and specific procedures commonly performed during these stays. All differences between estimates provided in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
