HCUP Visualization of Inpatient Trends in COVID-19 and Other Conditions

This interactive visualization displays State-specific monthly trends in inpatient stays related to COVID-19 and other conditions and facilitates comparisons across patient/stay characteristics and States. Trends are reported beginning with January 2018 except for COVID-19, where trends are reported beginning with April 2020. This information is drawn from the HCUP Summary Trend Tables, which present monthly information on hospital utilization based on the 2018-2020 HCUP State Inpatient Databases (SID), plus 2021 quarterly inpatient data, if available. HCUP brings together the data collection efforts of the HCUP Data Partners. Definitions, a description of the methods, and the full underlying dataset are available in Microsoft® Excel format (Excel file, 14.5 MB).

Instructions for use:
  1. Select 1 of the 3 top buttons to indicate how you want to compare monthly trends: across COVID-19 and other conditions, across States, or across patient/stay characteristics.
  2. Select 1 of the 3 outcome buttons: number of discharges, in-hospital mortality rate, or average length of stay.
  3. Use the drop-down menus to examine variation within each selection. Note that States with COVID-19 data are marked with an asterisk (*).
  4. The display is blank when data are unavailable.
