This latest dataset cleans many of the hospital websites that no longer exist or that have merged. The list was reduced to 4,150 hospitals. It was created by starting with Seed #3 and merging with hospital data found in data.world site.
After months of carefully gathering Hospital information from different sources, I have cleaned up and come up with the latest dataset which I will refer to as ‘Seed #3’. This is a more comprehensive list of hospitals across the U.S. and it’s five times the size of ‘Seed #2’, with a total of 5,942 hospitals included in this seed. Analysis of hospital sites moving forward will use this dataset.
This is what I am calling ‘Seed #1’ which is the dataset I am using to analyze on the coming blog posts. Even though I have years worth of data, I am planning to start small with a list of 1,657 hospital sites. This list is dated mid June 2015 and the results of analyzing reflect the snapshot of this date
