"Presents statistics on the utilization of short-stay hospitals, based on data abstracted by the Hospital Discharge Survey from a national sample of medical records of discharged patients. Discharges, days of care, and average length of stay are reported by age, sex, and color of the discharged patients, and by geographic region, bed size, and type of ownership of the hospitals. Some comparisons of data for 1967 are made with those for 1965 and 1966 to identify changes in patterns of hospitalization after the institution of Medicare."
