This Statistical Brief presents descriptive data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) and focuses on differences between weekend and weekday admissions in 2007 for patient, hospital, and stay characteristics. This information provides an overview of differences between patients admitted on weekends and those admitted on weekdays, but does not adjust for severity of illness at admission.
