Frequency and Costs of Hospital Admissions for Injury, 2004: Statistical Brief #18.


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


This Statistical Brief focuses on some of the most severe injuries—those that result in hospitalization. Specifically, utilization and cost data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) are examined for patients admitted primarily for injury in 2004. The frequency and cost of these hospital stays are compared with those for all other conditions by age group and primary source of payment. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
