These indicators reflect the number of admissions for a physical health service for children to age 19 that were discharged from an inpatient stay. Breakdowns are provided by various age groups (<1 year, 1-9 years, 10-19 years and total for all ages).
The rate represents the total number of discharges divided by 1,000 member months.
The year represents when PPC published the report.
PPC's report, along with source documentation, can be found at http://www.papartnerships.org/work/health/childrens-health-reports.
A weighted average is calculated for this indicator to provide a reflection of the actual rate within each age group.
