A list of licensed Residential Elder Care Facilities (RCFEs) from the California Department of Social Services.

Processing

RCFE Factilities are geocoded to tracts using the Census geocoder, which fails to geocode about 5 percent of the RCFE addresses. The facilities that fail to geocode are assigned to tracts with the following procedure

  • Using the HUD Zip to Tract crosswalk, all of the tracts that overlap with the zip code for a facility are collected.
  • THe list of tracts is sorted and a cumultative sum of the proportion of the residential addresses of the zip assigned to each tract is computed.
  • The last two digits of the facility id are divided by 100 to produce a number from 0 to 99.
  • That number is used to index the cumulative sum list to select a tract.

The result of this procedure is that a set of RCFE, all from the same zip code, will be assigned to tracts in the same proportion that residences in the zip code are assigned to tracts.
