Abstract

In 2015, the percentage of adults that visited an emergency department two or more times in the previous 12 months was higher among renters (9.5%) than among homeowners (5.4%). A higher percentage of homeowners aged ≥65 years (7.3%) visited the emergency department two or more times during the previous 12 months compared with homeowners aged 40–64 years (4.3%). Compared with renters aged 18–39 years (8.3%), the percentage of renters who visited the emergency department two or more times in the previous 12 months was higher among renters aged 40–64 years (10.8%) and ≥65 years (12.0%).
