2006 Nov.


This Statistical Brief presents data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) on hospital stays among patients with diabetes in 2004. The utilization and costs of hospital care are compared for patients with diabetes and those without. Variation in hospital utilization among patients with diabetes is illustrated by principal reason for hospitalization and by expected primary source of payment. Lower-limb amputations among patients hospitalized with diabetes are also described. All differences between estimates noted in the text are statistically significant at the 0.05 level or better.
