This aims to measure spatial access for people to hospitals in Illinois. The spatial accessibility is measured by the use of an enhanced two-step floating catchment area (E2FCA) method, which is an outcome of interactions between demands (i.e, # of potential patients; people) and supply (i.e., # of beds or physicians). As a result, the map of spatial accessibility will be produced. It identifies which regions need more healthcare resources, such as the number of beds or physicians. This notebook would serve as a guideline of which regions need more beds for fighting against COVID-19.
