Appendix D: Trending Results by Respondent Characteristics

(1) Work Area/Unit

Note 1: The number of hospitals and respondents in each breakout category is shown in each table (e.g., the number of hospitals and respondents by work area/unit). However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in a table will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.

Note 2: Only hospitals that had at least five respondents in the particular work area/unit and at least three respondents to a particular question for both their previous and most recent administrations of the survey are included.

Note 3: Respondents who selected "Many different work areas/No specific work area" or "Other" or who did not answer (missing) are not included.
