Appendix B: Overall Results by Respondent Characteristics

2011 User Comparative Database Report

(1) Work Area/Unit

Note 1: Hospitals that did not ask respondents to indicate their work area/unit were excluded from these breakout tables. In addition, respondents who selected "Many different work areas/No specific work area" or "Other" or did not answer (missing) were not included.

Note 2: The number of hospitals and respondents in each work area/unit is shown. The number of hospitals is based on: (1) hospitals that asked respondents to indicate their work area/unit (not all hospitals asked this question), and (2) whether the hospital had at least five respondents in a particular work area/unit and at least three respondents to a particular question. However, the precise number of hospitals and respondents corresponding to each data cell in the tables will vary because hospitals may have omitted a specific survey item and because of individual nonresponse/missing data.
