This regular feature of the journal includes a discussion of each of the following four topics: community hospital statistics;
employment, hours, and earnings in the private health sector; health care prices; and national economic indicators. These
statistics are valuable in their own right for understanding the relationship between the health care sector and the overall
economy. In addition, they allow us to anticipate the direction and magnitude of health care cost changes prior to the availability
of more comprehensive data.
