indicator_title: Acute Myocardial Infarction Hospitalizations Among New Jersey Residents
link_to_dataset: https://www26.state.nj.us/doh-shad/indicator/complete_profile/NJEPHTAMIHOSP.html
abstract: This dataset contains case counts and rates of myocardial infarction inpatient hospitalizations among New Jersey residents from 2000 through the most recent year of publicly available data. These data are stratified by year, month of admission through the most current year for which data are publicly available and county of residence.
purpose: This data set contributes to the Environmental Public Health Tracking Network. The EPHT cooperative agreement states that "by September 30, 2008 [all grantees must] track and make available core environmental health tracking measures on the State and National EPHT Network [including] data/information on key water contaminants, as defined through the Content workgroup process." The Content Workgroup Hospitalization Team identified health outcomes of concern for the national EPHT program, identified nationally consistent data sources, and developed nationally consistent indicators and measures. Hospitalization can be examined by year and at a county level.
supplemental_data_info: These data have been de-identified to protect patient confidentiality.
