Table 1 Mean (standard error) for the annual rates of hospitalization with septicemia per 10,000 individuals in different age groups between 2011 and 2012 for the 42 states reporting the corresponding data (Methods), and the correlations (with 95% CIs; boldface indicates statistical significance) between the state-specific septicemia hospitalization rates in different age groups between 2011 and 12 and the state-specific rates of prescribing of all oral antibiotics between 2011 and 2012
