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 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.
