Heart attacks and hospitalization

Every week the National Center for Health Statistics produces a feature called QuickStats for the CDC’s publication Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report which highlights interesting and relevant data from NCHS data collection programs.

This week it highlights hospitalizations rates for coronary atherosclerosis and acute myocardial infarction for the period 1996-2005. These data come from the National Hospital Discharge Survey.
