* Beginning in 2008, the sample of hospitals was reduced by half. Any discontinuities in trends observed in recent years could be an artifact due to the sample size reduction.

** This is the period before implementation of a new sample design. Some of the differences between the 1979–1987 statistics and those of later years may be due to sampling error rather than changes in hospital utilization patterns.

—There were fewer than 30 NHDS records for this cell of the table. Data are not reported because of questionable reliability.
