1 Based on Census Bureau estimated civilian population as of July 1. Beginning with 1997, population figures are adjusted for net underenumeration using the 1990 National Population Adjustment Matrix from the US Census Bureau. Comparisons of selected statistics based on matrix adjusted populations with those based on nonadjusted populations for data years 1995 and 1996 show little difference between the two sets of estimates.
2 Average length of stay and rates per 1,000 population are age-adjusted.
3 Includes other first-listed diagnoses not shown separately.

* Terms relating to hospitalization

Discharge rate--The ratio of the number of hospital discharges during a year to the number of persons in the civilian population on July 1 of that year.

Days of care--The number of patient days accumulated at the time of discharge by a patient. A stay of less than 1 day (patient admission and discharge on the same day) is counted as 1 day in the summation of total days of care. For patients admitted and discharged on different days, the number of days of care is computed by counting all days from (and including) the date of admission to (but not including) the date of discharge.

Rate of days of care--The ratio of the number of days of care accumulated during a year to the number of persons in the civilian population on July 1 of that year.

Average length of stay--The number of days of care accumulated by patients discharged during the year divided by the number of these discharges.

Diagnosis--A disease or injury (or factor that influences health status and contact with health services that is not itself a current illness or injury) listed on the medical record of a patient. Principal diagnosisThe condition established after study to be chiefly responsible for occasioning the admission of the patient to the hospital for care.

First-listed diagnosis--The diagnosis specified as the principal diagnosis on the face sheet or discharge summary of the medical record, or if the principal diagnosis is not speci-fied, the diagnosis listed first on the face sheet or discharge summary of the medical record (see the Medical coding and edit section of appendix I). The number of first-listed diag-noses is equivalent to the number of discharges.
