Hospitalization Rates (Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System-SPARCS)
Data on hospitalizations are collected through the hospital inpatient discharge data system, SPARCS. Data are not available on events that did not result in a hospitalization, such as cases that were only treated in a hospital emergency room. Each hospitalization receives an ICD-9 code at discharge which indicates the primary reason for the hospitalization. The following are the ICD-9 codes included in the hospitalization based rates in this section: self-inflicted injury (E950-E958), assaults (E960-E968).

The rates presented are per 100,000 persons in a specific age group or the total population. For more information, contact Bureau of Biometrics and Health Statistics at (518)474-3189.
