Kids' Inpatient Database
The Kids' Inpatient Database (KID) is the only all-payer pediatric inpatient care database in the United States, containing data from two to three million hospital stays. Its large sample size is ideal for developing national and regional estimates and enables analyses of rare conditions, such as congenital anomalies, as well as uncommon treatments, such as organ transplantation. The KID has been produced every three years (1997, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012). Hospital discharge data for 2015 contains a mix of ICD-9 and ICD-10 data (the first three quarters of 2015 contain ICD-9 data and the last quarter contains ICD-10). Because of the complexities of analyzing a mixed data year, the next KID will be available for 2016 and will be comprised of ICD-10 data only.

- The Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD) is a unique and powerful database designed to support various types of analyses of national readmission rates for all payers and the uninsured. The NRD includes discharges for patients with and without repeat hospital visits in a year and those who have died in the hospital. Repeat stays may or may not be related. The criteria to determine the relationship between hospital admissions is left to the analyst using the NRD. This database addresses a large gap in health care data - the lack of nationally representative information on hospital readmissions for all ages.
