  • Description:
    Statistics are presented on the utilization of short-stay non- Federal hospitals based on data abstracted by the Hospital Discharge Survey from a national sample of hospital records of discharged inpatients. The number of discharges, discharge rates, and average length of stay are shown for categories of first-listed diagnoses, by demographic characteristics of inpatients and geo- graphic region of hospitals. The number and percent distribution of all-listed diagnoses are presented by age and sex. Some comparisons are made of the 1968 data with 1965 to identify changes which occurred in patterns of hospitalization under Medicare.
