Observations

This map shows a comparison between the amount of adjusted gross income (AGI) earned by state residents and the number of Medicare claims made within that state by residents in 2007. From this visualization, we can see the following observations:
  • darker states, such as Montana, California and Florida, are the states with low average AGI per Medicare claim. California has a very huge AGI, but it also has high Medicare claims far above national average.
  • lighter states, such as Oregon, Wyoming, and Hawaii, are the states with high average AGI per Medicare claim. With fair amount of population, people in these states may be more healthy?

  Portable Interactive Google Visualization Design This demo uses Google Visualization API
 to integrate the following types of charts. This demo is also interactive such that users can see more details about a state when clicking the state on the map. We also notice that currently Google GeoMap has some limitations, e.g. it does not show Washington, D.C.
 on map.
