As our population ages, nursing homes will be in higher demand. Using multiple data sources around demographics and nursing homes, we want to validate this higher demand and showcase data to allow consumers to choose a nursing home based on quality metrics. We clustered the nursing homes into three major categories: Top tier, Mid tier, Low tier, each characterized by their average cost, funding sources, quality of care, complaints, and staff quality. We revealed subtle correlations between ethnic groups, resident types, and nursing home categories.
