dc.descriptionThe aim of the study was to examine the increase in hospital admission rates over the past 20 years or so , and to attempt to determine the reasons for this growth. A synoptic description of hospital in-patients is presented , supplemented by independent sampling in a number of county hospitals . Time series and cross- sectional models were also fitted to hospital in-patient data . Males have higher hospitalisation rates than females. The main growth in admissions has been among the elderly, while infant rates are dropping. Changing attitudes over time improved services and more consultants all have an effect on admission rates, whereas population growth per se has only a small effect . Since 1971 there has been a very large increase in the number of reported admissions for investigations . Irish admission rates are higher than those in the U.K., but lower than in the U. S . Factors affecting admission rates , such as insurance cover, are examined in some detail. This study is intended only as a start in this subject area and it provides pointers to where further work is required .en_GB
