Hospital Referral Regions (HRRs)

Description
Displays HRRs which represent regional health care markets for tertiary medical care that generally requires the services of a major referral center. The regions were defined by determining where patients were referred for major cardiovascular surgical procedures and for neurosurgery. Each hospital service area (HSA) was examined to determine where most of its residents went for these services. The result was the aggregation of the 3,436 hospital service areas into 306 HRRs. Each HRR has at least one city where both major cardiovascular surgical procedures and neurosurgery are performed.

Number of Low-Income People Who Are Not Served by Health Centers

Description
Displays the estimated number of low-income residents in the ZCTA who are not served by any health centers. The number is calculated by subtracting the number of total health center patients reported in the UDS for that ZCTA (from all health centers reporting 11 or more patients residing in that ZCTA) from the number of low-income (below 200% FPL) residents in that same ZCTA. Because income is not reported in the UDS at the ZIP Code level, this measure is only an estimate and should be interpreted as such. In the dot density map, one dot equals 100 low-income residents from that ZCTA that do not go to any health center. Each dot is randomly placed in the ZCTA. Note: Pending the release of 2017 American Community Survey data, statistics such as program penetration and unmet need by insurance category are comparing 2017 patients to 2016 population data.
