Chris Famighetti points us to this page which links to an interactive visualization.

There are some problems with the mapping software—when I clicked through, it showed a little map of the western part of the U.S., accompanied by huge swathes of Canada and the Pacific Ocean—and I haven’t taken a look at the methodology.

But in a way it doesn’t really matter. This sort of thing is great. If it’s solid work, that’s great already. If it’s flawed, it’s out there and people can make suggestions for improvement. So I hope this Blue Cross team gets lots of feedback uses this to improve what they’ve got.

    Jkrideau, Nasser:

    That’s weird; the links work just fine for me.
