New from HCUP – Interactive maps

From the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ):

HCUP has created two interactive maps to show detailed graphical information about the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS)  and HCUP’s State Databases .

The NIS’ interactive map  presents information on the availability of the American Hospital Association’s hospital identification number (HCUP element AHAID ) for data years 2000 through 2010. The map also provides a graphical representation of the States participating in HCUP for each data year.

 The State Databases’ interactive map  provides information on the States that include Revisit Variables  for data years 2003 through 2010. Users may select a combination of State Databases (the SID SASD , or SEDD ) and years of interest to see which States had the databases of interest and the Revisit Variables available.
