Numerators based on 1 to 4 discharges are suppressed to ensure confidentiality of the data.
* Rates based on fewer than 10 cases are suppressed due to statistical instability.

Note: Numbers reported for 2020 and 2021 are likely lower due to outcomes related to COVID-19 Public Health Emergency measures. Data for 2020 and 2021 remain provisional at this time.

At this time, 2021 is the most current year for which data is available. However, new data will be uploaded for this indicator as soon as it is made available.
