Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Statistical Briefs [Internet]. Rockville (MD): Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US); 2006-.
2011 May.


This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on emergency department (ED) visits and inpatient admissions for sports related concussions in 2008. Patient demographic characteristics (age, gender, and region), hospital characteristics (teaching and trauma center status), and clinical characteristics (loss of consciousness) are compared between sports related and non-sports related concussions. Top concurrent conditions are also compared between these two types of concussions. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
