This data collection consists of data from the 1979-1992 NHDS files, split into non-newborn (Part 1) and newborn (Part 2) data. Variables include patients' demographic characteristics (sex, age, race, marital status), month of admission, status at discharge, final diagnoses, surgical and nonsurgical procedures, dates of surgeries, and sources of payment. Information on hospital characteristics such as bedsize, ownership, and region of the country is also included.
