KIC Emergency Department Statistics - Diagnosis allows tabulations by year, age-group, race, sex, ethnicity, and county/area of residence. The most current year for Emergency Department statistics is 2020.

See the Emergency Department - Notes and Limitations for more information on this dataset and its preparation.

On April 1, 2016, population estimates were updated with the newly released 2000-2009 intercensal population estimates, produced by the U.S. Census Bureau Population Estimates program. Introduction of the intercensal estimates could alter any results (rates / percentages) captured prior to April 1, 2016. For more detail, regarding population estimates, see KIC’s Notes & Limitations, section “Population Estimates”.

Help & Notes Step 1. If you want to see your results by a geographic area, you must select county as a row or column variable. If you want to see statistics broken out by year or other variable, you will need to make that variable a row or column variable. You cannot make a variable both a row and column variable. The variables Age Group and Diagnosis, if selected as a row or column, have drill down breakouts that allow each category to be more specific. These drill down breakouts will only function completely with the selection of 'By County', 'By Health Preparedness Region' or 'By Geographic Region' in "Step 4". Help & Notes Step 2. These selections allow you to filter the resulting table to a specific subcategory. If one of Step 2 variables is also a row or column variable, then applying the filter will have no affect on the output table.
STEP 4 - 4.A & 4.B must be completed
Which year(s) would you like to include in your query? 4.A - Category Selection: Select a button for State, County, Region or Peer Group Statistics.
All Years| Clear All
State    Counties    Kansas Health Preparedness Regions
Geographical Regions (District Offices)    Peer Groups

4.B - Scroll to the above selected category in the list below and select the area or group of areas of interest. NOTE: Area lists will be "greyed out" and non-selectable except for the areas related to the category selected above. To select multiple areas in a give category, hold "Ctrl" Key down while making choices. See "Help & Notes" for further instructions.

NOTE: Counties in a region/group can be determined by viewing the resource maps page.
Help & Notes Step 3. If year is a row or column variable, then the table will display results by single year. If year is not a row or column variable, than the resulting table will aggregate the number of years you check. Data for new years will be added as it becomes available. Help & Notes Step 4. County/area Selections can only be made within the selected category, no cross category selections are allowed. If after viewing prior results you return to the query criteria page by using your browser's back button, the county/area list will be greyed out. To reactivate your selection click once on your original category. Your county/area selection(s) will be restored and ready for use. If another category is wanted, select it and scroll to the active section of the list.
Select which Diagnosis you wish to view from the list below. If you selected Diagnosis as your row variable, you may select multiple Diagnosis by holding down the Control Key and selecting the ones you want. You can select how you want to view the data:
Frequencies only
Frequencies and Rates (for number of patients)
Help & Notes Step 5. This displays rates by diagnosis or groups of diagnosis selected. To select multiple diagnosis, pick a diagnosis, then use the control key and pick the additional diagnosis. Help & Notes Step 6. Select how you wish to view your results. Results can be viewed by frequencies only or frequencies and rates.
The following three menus pertain only to rates generated by the query system when "frequencies and rates" is selected in step 8. Your search is ready.  Click the Submit button.
Help & Notes Step 7. If you choose to view rates, you may view either crude or age-adjusted rates. Age-adjusting is recommended when comparing two geographic areas or different years. Year 2000 is the recommended population standard for age-adjusting. Confidence intervals are available for rates.
