This map service displays nursing homes supply and demand per state, congressional district, and county for people age 65 and over.  It shows the number of people per area (state, congressional district and county), from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 census, divided by the number of nursing homes, provided by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services .  The capacity is calculated as the number of nursing homes in the area multiplied by the national average (number of people 65 and older per facility).  The number of nursing homes needed is calculated by dividing the area's population by the national average (number of people 65 and older per facility).  The nursing home surplus or need is calculated by subtracting the number of facilities needed (based on the population size) from the number of existing facilities.  Accessibility and travel time are not considered in these calculations.We recommend this service be viewed with a 40% transparency. Another data source includes Data.gov._____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Other Health Datapalooza focused content that may interest you: Health Datapalooza Health Datapalooza
