Migration to State, 2007-2008



Description:
This demo traces population migration in contrast to Medicare claims.
The top map shows a distribution of Medicare claims within the United States for 2007. Clicking on a state will bring up a map underneath showing the amount of people who migrated to that state from the various other states between 2007 and 2008.

Interesting Conclusions:
Florida has a high number of Medicare claims and also has one of the highest in-flow of the other states. As a result, it becomes a sinkhole of migration causing an increasing number of Medicare claims.
