Methodology Notes

Principal diagnosis is the diagnosis chiefly responsible for admission of the person to the hospital.

FOR SINGLE DATA YEARS: Hospital discharge Rrates are calculated using the July 1 estimates of the civilian population from the Vintage matching the data year for the postcensal period based on the 2000 census. For example, July 1, 2007 civilian population for rates of data year 2007, the 2007 estimates from Vintage 2007 are used as the denominator for 2007 rates. Rates for 2010 are also calculated using the July 1 estimates based on the 2000 census.
