Cost of Hospital Stays in New York

Peggy and I had an interesting question from a student this morning who was looking for statistics for New York state on the average number, length and cost of hospital stays. We found some data in AHA Hospital Statistics (Ref RA981 .A2A6234) which includes state profiles and city data for MSAs. We also found that the Kaiser Family Foundation makes this AHA data and more available online in a Website of Statehealthfacts. You can browse the Website by state or category and the data can be downloaded into Excel.
