A recent edition of PAS Reporter, a publication of the Commission on Professional and Hospital Activities, reported what in essence is the case-fatality ratio of 51,238 patients with cerebrovascular disease who were hospitalized in 649 PAS participating hospitals during the latter half of 1968 (1). The PAS report concluded that the ". . . rates do not vary appreciably by hospital size, yet within each group there is considerable variation," and that ". . . there was essentially no variation in rates between teaching and nonteaching hospitals." This conclusion may be valid, but it cannot and should not be arrived
