This is the first publication in Series 11, which replaced Series 4 after its discontinuation in 2003. The introduction of Series 11 coincides with the 2005 reformulation of the Health Service Statistics Subsystem that generates the inpatient morbidity statistics within the HMIS.

The report provides registered discharge data from public sector, inpatient care facilities for 2005. Facilities associated with the armed and security forces and national universities, as well as those in the private and social insurance fund sectors, are not included in the data. Diagnoses are coded in ICD-10 and grouped into 80 categories. The data are broken down by province, sex, and 5-year-age groups (smaller increments for those under age 5), and represent a single, principal diagnosis for each period of hospitalization.

Data from the provinces of Salta and Tucumán are not included in the 2005 report.
