New JerseyState Snapshot for Children

In this comparison, the NHQDR measures for New Jersey for the most recent data year and the baseline year are compared to the average of all States.

Due to changes in methodology, including a transition from International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) to Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes and updates to the Quality Indicators software, the current measure set does not contain AHRQ Quality Indicator measure results based on Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) data. These changes to the measure set had a significant impact on overall meter scores, so they are not provided at this time. When data become available, State scores will again be included.
