1 Comparisons beginning 1988 with data for earlier years should be made with caution as estimates of change may reflect improvements in the 1988 sample design rather than true changes in hospital use.
2 Per 10,000 population. Based on Bureau of the Census estimated civilian population as of July 1. Population estimates for the 1980's do not reflect revised estimates based on the 1990 Census of Population. Beginning 1900 rates are based on civilian population estimates that have been adjusted for net underenumeration in the 1990 Census.
