Table 3 Key differentiating comorbidities: marginal probabilities (n = 192,327*)

From: Comorbidity profiles and inpatient outcomes during hospitalization for heart failure: an analysis of the U.S. Nationwide inpatient sample

Comorbidity Common n = 89,518(46.7%) Lifestyle n = 37,797(19.6%) Renal n = 57,228(29.6%) Neurovascular n = 7,784(4.1%)
Paralysis -0.422 -0.187 -0.302 0.911
Cerebrovascular disease -0.417 -0.129 -0.220 0.765
Diabetes with complications -0.515 -0.217 0.738 -0.006
Renal disease -0.755 0.224 0.533 -0.002
Diabetes, uncomplicated -0.142 0.573 -0.428 -0.003
Obesity -0.175 0.227 -0.028 -0.024
  1. All marginal probabilities were statistically significant (all p < 0.0001). Marginal effects in probability scale sum to zero for each comorbidity, with values closest to ±1.0 indicating the strongest differentiation.
  2. *Estimates generated using discharge weights (population estimate n = 976,664).
  3. Population estimates for totals of discharges fitting the common, lifestyle, renal and neurovascular comorbid illness profiles were 455851, 191595, 289613, and 39604, respectively.
