This field indicates (for each participant) the number of in-patient Health Episode Statistics (HES) records in the UKB repository which contain "Method of discharge from hospital" information. Participants with zero records are not itemised.
Method of discharge from hospital identifies how a patient was discharged i.e. whether this was on clinical advice, the patient died in hospital or the patient discharged themselves.
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 206, Data-Coding 248, Data-Coding 249 and Data-Coding 256. It is recommended that the re-coded Field 41238 is used instead of this one.
There are no tabulations involving field 41102.
Registered researchers may, when logged in, request that new analyses be generated and displayed here.
