Notes for all figures:

Circles with connecting lines represent the actual numbers of disharges each quarter. The heavier, solid lines represents an estimated trend line for the mean number of discharges each quarter.The shaded bands represents the degree of uncertainty about the shape of the corresponding estimated trend line. The wider the band, the greater the uncertainty about the true trend line.

*Vertical dashed lines indicates the last quarter for which patient records were coded to ICD-9-CM.The United States transitioned to ICD-10-CM on October 1, 2015. This should be considered as a possible contributor to any trend changes observed immediately following the transition to ICD-10-CM. Note: ICD-10-CM indicator definitions are preliminary and subject to change.
