Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Statistical Briefs [Internet]. Rockville (MD): Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US); 2006-.
2008 May.


This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on the hospital treatment of stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases in 2005. The usage and expense of hospital stays for cerebrovascular disease are compared with hospital stays for all conditions. Additionally, the most common types of cerebrovascular diseases resulting in hospital admission are described, and trends in hospitalization rates (from 1997 through 2005) for each type are presented. Variations in hospital utilization across the types of cerebrovascular diseases are illustrated by age and primary payer. The usage of procedures commonly associated with the treatment of cerebrovascular disease is also discussed. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
