"The Postal Service’s Letters to Santa program is celebrating 101 years of helping make children’s holiday wishes come true.
Although USPS began receiving letters to Santa Claus more than 101 years ago, its involvement was made official in 1912 when Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock authorized postal employees and citizens to respond to the letters.
Today, the popular holiday program is known nationwide as Letters to Santa.”
Vanderbilt Hospital patients by ZIP Code. “Knowing where your customers come from is essential to operating a business. This map shows that Vanderbilt University Hospital draws patients from all over Tennessee and eastern Kentucky, plus a smattering from northern Mississippi and Alabama. The average distance traveled to a business can be calculated if you know how many persons come from each ZIP Code.” (Hendrickson Consulting)
The data are sourced from the Medicare Hospital Service Area File, a valuable US government dataset. When used with Maptitude, maps can be created showing the number of discharges, length of stay, and total charges by provider number and ZIP code of the Medicare beneficiary.
