Natl Health Stat Report. 2018 Aug;(116):1-11
Authors: Williams S, Gousen S, DeFrances C
This report demonstrates the use of the National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS) for the study of pneumonia inpatient hospitalizations and emergency department (ED) visits. The analysis is based on unweighted data of inpatient and ED encounters from the 2014 NHCS and is intended to illustrate the capabilities of the survey, including the ability to link inpatient hospitalizations or ED visits across settings and with other data sources, once hospital participation allows for nationally representative estimates.
