a Estimates are adjusted by age and gender using the total U.S. population for 2000 as the standard population. Note: For KS, rate biased upward because data element was not available to exclude transfers.

-- Statistic cannot be calculated.

Source: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Center for Delivery, Organization, and Markets, Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP). State estimates are from the 2002 and 2001 State Inpatient Databases (SID); not all States participate in HCUP. Estimates for the total U.S. are from the 2002 and 2001 Nationwide Inpatient Sample, which is drawn from the SID and weighted to give national estimates.
