Data Reporting Issues:

2016 and beyond Hospital Discharge data:

If querying Ethnicity there is an undercount in Discharge data for year 2016 and beyond due to several facilities not capturing Ethnicity. Overall ~9% of all discharges did not report Ethnicity. Generally, use caution when looking at any rates and numbers by Hispanic Ethnicity. Data prior to 2016 are either too unreliable or not available.
