Inpatient Statistics 2010

This is the second entry in our overview series of healthcare statistics in the United States. If you missed the first one, you can find Physician Office Visit Statistics 2010 here.

As the title suggests, this entry will focus in on utilization rates from 2010 for Inpatient visits for the country as a whole.

NOTE: You can click on any of the images below to see the full report image.

The table above illustrates the total number of Inpatient visits in the United States for 2010 broken down by age category.  The overall rate of Inpatient visits for the country is one visit for every 7.88 people.

The table above and below should be looked at in comparison to one another. The above graph shows the incident rate broken down by age group while the graph below represents the total volume of Inpatient visits by age group.

Notice how the overall utilization of Inpatient visits is highest in middle of our lives but closely followed by the end of our lives (by a much smaller population set).

Looking at the table below, the second and third listing as the most frequent Major Diagnostic Codes for Inpatient visits reveals the most likely cause for the majority of Inpatient visits for the age group of 25-45.

Click the above snapshot to see a larger list of Major Diagnostic Categories for Inpatient visits.

Let us know what your reactions are to these Inpatient Statistics from 2010.

Physician Office Visit Statistics 2010

Understanding utilization rates in healthcare is an important step for a better educated public. Below you will find breakdowns of physician office visits for the country by age, sex, and race.

NOTE: Click on any of the images in this post to get an image of the full report.


The chart above represents how age groups utilize physicians in a different manner.  In future posts, we will also be exploring Inpatient, Outpatient, and Emergency Room visits from multiple angles.

The lowest “users” of physician office services are the age group 15-25 (1.86 visits per year) and the highest being 75+ (6.8 visits per year).

These numbers can be broken down further to paint a clearer picture.


This breakdown shows the female population accounts for approximately 58% of all physician office visits across the country.  Females in the age range of 45-65 are just over 17% of all POV.

One table included in the full report is a breakdown of POV utilizations by Race and Age Group.
