|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Hip Fractures Anesthesia Death||Procedure: Neuraxial anesthesia Procedure: General anesthesia|
To evaluate the sources of variance in utilization of neuraxial anesthesia the investigators will use multilevel multivariable modeling strategies. This will allow identification of sources of variation (hospital, vs physician, vs patient characteristics), as well as identification of independent predictors of neuraxial use at each of these three levels.
The investigators will also evaluate the independent association of hospital level variation in neuraxial use on our outcomes of interest using multilevel multivariable regression.

Participants in this group will be those who had a spinal or epidural anesthetic without concurrent general anesthesia
Procedure: Neuraxial anesthesia
Participants in this group will be those who had general anesthesia, including those who had a general plus a concurrent spinal or epidural anesthetic.
Procedure: General anesthesia
- All cause 30-day mortality [ Time Frame: Day of surgery to day of death, or up to 365 days, whichever comes first ]
- Healthcare costs from the perspective of the universal healthcare system, using standardized methods (Health System Performance Research Network 2013) [ Time Frame: Day of surgery to day of death, or 30 days after surgery, whichever comes first ]
- Hospital length of stay [ Time Frame: Day of surgery to day of discharge, or up to 365 days, whichever comes first ]
