We are very excited to see NHDS
make a lasting contribution to tackling these issues."
Some methods for similarity measurement have been studied, including the enhanced perceptual distance functions , the robust structured subspace learning (RSSL) algorithm , the neighborhood discriminant hashing (NDH)  and the normalized hamming distance (NHD
Because areal features can be generalized using generalized linear features, the artificial paths (e.g., middle axes) of the areal features available in NHDs
were excluded from the input into SOM and only the intermittent and perennial streams were used in the proposed method.
This norovirus prevalence was then extrapolated to national estimates of acute gastroenteritis in children <5 years of age from NHDS
, the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), and the National Hospital Ambulatory Care Survey (NHAMCS) (12).
For the 2010 NHDS
, (NCHS, 2010b) used the CMS MS-DRG Grouper software Version 27.0 to assign the MS-DRG.
Reeves and his associates also wrote that surveys of health care providers, such as the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS), the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS
), and the National Nursing Home Survey (NNHS), "complement data from the population-based surveys to provide a more complete representation of the occurrence of mental illness in the United States."
Researchers compared the HOPS group with two groups from the general population: hospitalized people in the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS
) and nonhospitalized patients in the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS).
The volume of hospital inpatient services is particularly easy to measure because of two data sets from which a time series of hospital discharges can be constructed: The National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS
), which is produced yearly for the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), which is produced for the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
According to the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS
), 65% of newborns were circumcised in 1999 and the overall proportion of newborns circumcised was stable from 1979 to 1999 .
There are limits on the number of notional half-days (NHDs
) for which clinical assistants can be appointed - no more than 5 for non-GP clinical assistants, and no more than 9 for others.

One such new initiative included the National Heritage Digitization Strategy (NHDS
), developed with major Canadian memory institutions: public libraries, academic libraries and archives, provincial archives, national associations of archivists, librarians, historians and museums.
