Asthma Hospitalization Rates by County

This dataset contains counts and rates (per 10,000 residents) of asthma hospitalizations among Californians statewide and by county. The data are stratified by age group (all ages, 0-17, 18+, 0-4, 5-17, 18-64, 65+) and race/ethnicity (white, black, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Native). The data are derived from the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development Patient Discharge Data. These data include hospitalizations from all licensed hospitals in California. These data are based only on primary discharge diagnosis codes. On October 1, 2015, diagnostic coding for asthma transitioned from ICD-9-CM (493) to ICD-10-CM (J45). Because of this change, CDPH and CDC do not recommend comparing data from 2015 (or earlier) to 2016 (or later). NOTE: Rates are calculated from the total number of asthma hospitalizations (not the unique number of individuals).
