Caveats for costing data:
Case selection for fatalities was based on state of residence, while that for hospital
admissions was based on state of hospitalization, since the data source, HCUP-NIS,
does not give state of residence.
The hospitalized incidence shown here is not reliable. The HCUP-NIS is stratified to
be representative at the national level, not the state level.
Entity axis field from part one, not part of the death certificate field were selected.
For hospitalizations, the first five head-injury diagnoses fields were selected.
