Title: Average Rate of Heat-Related Hospitalizations in 23 States, 2001-2010
Abstract: This map shows the 2001–2010 average rate of hospitalizations classified as “heat-related” by medical professionals in 23 states that participate in CDC’s hospitalization tracking program. Rates are based on hospital discharge records for May 1 to September 30 of every year. Rates have been age-adjusted to account for differences in the population distribution over time and between states—for example, if one state has a higher proportion of older adults than another.

Purpose: These data were created to be used for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Change Indicators in the United States.
