a Consistent with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Prevention Quality Indicators software, hypertension must be the principal diagnosis. Excludes admissions with kidney disease with dialysis access procedures, admissions with cardiac procedures, and transfers from other institutions.

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