Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Where Does Healthcare Cost the Most?


In this project, students will map Medicare costs by local hospital service regions, explore the spatial patterns of costs to see where they're high and low, and perform a hot spot analysis to see where high and low costs are statistically significant.
