Abstract:The hospitalization rate for inner-city infants is much greater than that for suburban infants. A substantial portion of the difference, namely that attributable to mandatory admissions, reflected higher rates of serious illness. Differences attributable to discretionary admissions may reflect higher rates of serious illness to some extent, but also appear to reflect less effective health services to a substantial degree.
