  1. Geographic distribution of hospitalization rates, case fatality, and mortality from stroke in the United States.

    Article - En anglais

    We analyzed state-specific stroke-hospitalization, case-fatality, and mortality rates for the US Medicare population for 1989, using national data resources of the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), the National Center for Health Statistics, and the Bureau of the Census.

    State-specific hospital admission rates for stroke ranged from 0.66 to 1.26%, compared with the national value of 0.94%. Both hospital-usage rates and deviations of observed rates from predicted values (based on statistical models of the HCFA) showed significant spatial autocorrelation, with high rates clustered in the southeastern United States and low rates clustered in the Mountain census division of the West and also somewhat in the Northeast.
