State | Name of U.S. State, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico | string | required : 1 |

State_NHSN_Mandate | Yes indicates the presence of a state mandate to report CLABSI data from any location to NHSN at the beginning of 2013. The other options include the mid-year implementation of a mandate. | string | - |

Any_Validation | Indicates whether the state health department reported the completion of all validation activities. The Values are "Yes", "No" and "YesA". "YesA" indicates that the state also conducted an audit of facility medical or laboratory records prior to July 1, 2014 to confirm proper case ascertainment. | string | - |

Facilities_Reporting | Identifies the number of facilities reporting in the state. | integer | required : 1 level : Ratio |

Infections_Observed | Identifies the total number of infections observed in the state for the year 2013. | integer | required : 1 level : Ratio |

Infections_Predicted | Identifies the total number of infections predicted in the state for the year 2013. | number | required : 1 level : Ratio |

SIR | Standardized Infection Ratio which is the ratio of Number of infections observed to number of infections predicted. | number | required : 1 level : Ratio |

Ninety_Five_Percent_CI_for_SIR_Lower | A 95% CI assesses the magnitude and stability of an SIR. Specifically, a 95% CI is the range of estimated SIR values that has a 95% probability of including the true SIR for the population. A confidence interval (CI) is calculated around an SIR to determine how likely it is that the number of observed number of cases is high or low by chance. | number | required : 1 level : Ratio |

Ninety_Five_Percent_CI_for_SIR_Upper | A 95% CI assesses the magnitude and stability of an SIR. Specifically, a 95% CI is the range of estimated SIR values that has a 95% probability of including the true SIR for the population. A confidence interval (CI) is calculated around an SIR to determine how likely it is that the number of observed number of cases is high or low by chance. | number | required : 1 level : Ratio |

SIRs_Facilities_With_Atleast_1_Predicted_CLABSI | Percent of facilities with at least one predicted CLABSI that had an SIR significantly greater or less than the 2013 national overall CLABSI SIR of 0.538. This is only calculated if at least 10 facilities had at least one predicted CLABSI in 2013. | integer | required : 1 level : Ratio |

Percent_of_Facs_With_SIR_Sig_Higher_Than_National_SIR | Identifies the number of facilities having SIR greater than national SIR. | integer | level : Ratio |

Percent_of_Facs_With_SIR_Sig_Lower_Than_National_SIR | Identifies the number of facilities having SIR lower than national SIR. | integer | level : Ratio |

Key_Percentiles_10_Percent | Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs. | number | level : Ratio |

Key_Percentiles_25_Percent | Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs. | number | level : Ratio |

Key_Percentiles_50_Percent | Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs. | number | level : Ratio |

Key_Percentiles_75_Percent | Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs. | number | level : Ratio |

Key_Percentiles_90_Percent | Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs. | number | level : Ratio |
