Our aim was to study trends in hospital admission rates for peptic ulcer in a geographically defined population, and to distinguish the effects of period, age and birth cohort on the rates.
Analysis of linked, routinely collected abstracts of hospital inpatient care held by the Oxford record linkage study for the period 1970-1986.
Age-and sex-specific and age-standardized hospitalization, readmission and operation rates were calculated for patients with peptic ulcer.
Age, cohort and period effects were examined using log-linear models.
Records for a total of 5462 people with gastric ulcer and 10 186 with duodenal ulcer were identified.
