In healthcare-related studies, individual patient or hospital data are not often publicly available due to privacy restrictions, legal issues or reporting norms. However, such measures may be provided at a higher or more aggregated level, such as state-level, county-level summaries or averages over health zones such as Hospital Referral Regions (HRR) or Hospital Service Areas (HSA). Such levels constitute partitions over the underlying individual level data, which may not match the groupings that would have been obtained if one clustered the data based on individual-level attributes.
