National Hospital Discharge and Ambulatory Surgery Data

Provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this site offers a host of data on inpatients discharged from non-Federal, short-stay hospitals in the US and the use of ambulatory surgery services. These data include patient characteristics (age and sex, patient disposition, expected sources of payment, etc.), admission and discharge dates, and medical information such as diagnoses and procedures performed. Like other CDC data sites, this is not the easiest to navigate, but diligent users will be rewarded with numerous reports, raw data files, and related documentation.
