A retrospective analysis was undertaken based on several federal health data: National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey data 1997 to 2000; National Hospital Discharge Survey data 1997 to 2000; and Perinatal Mortality Linked Files 1998 to 1999. The Hospital Cost Utilization Inpatient Sample data 1997 to 2000 were used to estimate hospitalization costs, and the 2001 Medicare fee schedule was used to estimate Emergency Department (ED) visit costs. Census data were used for population estimates. Between November and April 1997 to 2000, a total of 718 008 ED visits were recorded for infants
