The statistics have been adjusted to allow for differences in the age of parents.

Anotherwords, the mortality rate data does not weigh old patients past-aways more heavily?

OK, I can't understand what this is about. I am probably getting old, but you will have to throw me a bone here; "I have been a freaking evil doctor for 20 freaking years..."

Stem:

Data has been adjusted to allow for differences in the age of patients.

Question: Can this be used to object to interpreting the rank on good logical ground for hospitals to object to interpreting rank on these lists as one of the indexes of the value of health care:

Old patients are less likely than youngsters to survive illness.

Does the stem say it does not favor data of youngsters, I can't find one precise sentence to sum it up. It varies.

Lists of hospitals have compiled showing which hospitals have patient death rates exceeding the national average. The data have been adjusted to allow for differences in the age of patients.

Each of the following, if true, provides a good logical ground for hospitals to object to interpreting rank on these lists as one of the indices of the quality of hospital care EXCEPT:

C) Patients who are very old on admission to a hospital are less likely that younger patients to survive the same types of illnesses or surgical procedures.

That's the right answer because companies or hospitals data of age relating to patient deaths are not weighted more heavily for hospitals who have a higher death rate due to AIDs.
