  2. The results of ordinary least-squares regression were that three out of the five explanatory variables were statistically significant. In terms of the factors of hospital characteristics, status as an advanced treatment hospital and the Casemix index were significant. In terms of the hospital location, the number of hospitals per unit of population was statistically significant.
