This field indicates (for each participant) the number of in-patient Health Episode Statistics (HES) records in the UKB repository which contain "Source of admission to hospital" information. Participants with zero records are not itemised.
Source of admission identifies whether a patient came to the hospital from their usual place of residence or elsewhere.
In order to conduct analyses using this information, researchers must include this data-field in their application, however access will be given in-situ rather than as a download.
Note that the original information was obtained from a variety of external sources, some of which used overlapping and contradictory coding schemes. The values in this field can therefore only be interpreted when the source of each item is known (see Field 41252) using the source-specific codings Data-Coding 203, Data-Coding 243, Data-Coding 244 and Data-Coding 253. It is recommended that the re-coded Field 41237 is used instead of this one.
