  • Description:
    Statistics are presented on the number and rate of inpatients with surgery discharged from non-Federal short-stay hospitals and the types of surgical operations performed. The data for this report are based on information abstracted by means of the Hospital Discharge Survey from a national sample of the hospital records for discharged inpatients. Estimates of the number of patients with surgery and of operations, grouped by surgical classes and categories, are shown by the demographic characteristics of the operated patients and by geographic region and size of hospital. The number and average length of stay is shown for first-listed operations by age and sex.
