Abstract
The 1988 National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS), which is part of a continuing sample of hospital discharge records, provides medical and demographic information used to calculate statistics on hospital utilization. This survey consists of data abstracted from the face sheets of medical records for sampled inpatients discharged from a national sample of nonfederal short-stay hospitals. The variables include information on the patient's demographic characteristics (sex, age, date of birth, race, marital status), dates of admission and discharge, status at discharge, diagnoses, procedures performed, and source of payment. Information on hospital characteristics, such as bedsize, ownership, and region of the country, is also included.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR09521.v1

    a| Patient discharges from noninstitutional hospitals (excluding federal, military and Veterans Administrative hospitals) located in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Only short-stay hospitals (hospitals with an average length of stay for all patients of less than 30 days) or those whose specialty is general (medical or surgical) or children's general are included in the survey. These hospitals must also have six or more beds staffed for patient use. For 1988, the NHDS universe consisted of eligible hospitals that began accepting inpatients before September 1, 1987, and were listed in the April 1987 SMG Hospital Market Data Tape (SMG Marketing Group, Inc., Chicago, IL).
