Oh I know our Bradley teacher had a stat but it was a little outdated. Going to try and find one now. It's got to be high with the # of hospitals here.
UPDATE: Ok, I found it. The most recent rate for St. Louis County is between 34.43-43.63 between 2005 and 2009. The state of MO is 31.2, so obviously St. Louis is much higher (again due to the # of hospitals we have here). They even have a trend chart. It looks like back in the early 90s the rate was only 22.5 for the state. It's a shame it has gotten so high.
BTW, I found this on the Dept of Health website.
