The distance was computed using the Haversine formula (see Sinnott, 1984) from the geographic coordinates for the population centroids computed by the Bureau of the census for the years 1960, 1970, 1980, and 1990.

We matched each zip code with all the nursing homes available in a given year and calculated the distance of each zip code centroid from a given nursing home using the Haversine formula of distance.
To determine the distance to the nearest VAMC for each valid patient zip code, the distances between that zip code (excluding those outside the United States) and all VAMC-containing zip codes were first calculated using an algorithm, based on the inverse tangent Haversine formula, provided by the VAHERC (2009).
