I don't have any clever map sort or grep approaches, but the code could be simplified. For the sequence of if-then statements, one could use
my @institutions = qw|hospital1 hospital2|; my %seen; $seen{$_}++ foreach @institutions; if (!defined $institution) { $institution_table{"unaffiliated"} ++; } elsif (exists $seen{lc $institution}) { $institution_table{lc $institution} ++; } else { $institution_table{"other"} ++; }
For the loop, here is a slightly more clever method:
my $cat_age = int ($age/5) - 9; my @age_cats = qw|fortyfive_fifty fifty_fiftyfive fiftyfive_sixty|; foreach (keys %institution_table) { $institution_table{ $_ }{ $age_cats[$cat_age] }++; }
One could use a map for the loop, but the foreach is faster.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
