a Based on the three Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Preventiom Quality Indicators for bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and urinary tract infection.

b Rates are adjusted by age and gender using the total U.S. resident population for 2000 as the standard population.

DNC - Data were not collected.

Key: SE: standard error.

Source: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Center for Delivery, Organization, and Markets, Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) databases and AHRQ Quality Indicators, modified version 4.1. State estimates are from the State Inpatient Databases (SID), and not all States participate in HCUP. Estimates for the total U.S. are from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, which is drawn from the SID and weighted to give national estimates.
