  6. New Hampshire Uniform Hospital Discharge Data Sets (NHUHDDS) 2015, please note:
    • The 2015 data estimates are calculated using a 9 month annualized rate with the same ICD9 codes. Indicators with strong seasonal variability, e.g., asthma, may not reflect actual rates.
    • We do not have out of state hospital data yet which impacts incidence rates in many border communities and for several types of diagnoses/services.
    • We will not release 2010-2011 data due to quality issues though we may at some point revisit whether the data is consistent enough on a case by case basis.
