Demographics
Sentinel City is a virtual community with a total population of 663,862 (Healthcare Learning Innovations, 2018). Within the city, there are four distinctly different neighborhoods: Nightingale Square, Acer Tech Center, Casper Park District, and Industrial Heights. The majority of the population reside in Casper Park District, roughly 350,000 people. The neighborhood with the lowest population is Industrial Heights, which only has about 39,000 residents. Acer Tech Center comes in second with the most people at about 168,000 and Nightingale Square with a population of about 104,000.
In Sentinel City, senior citizens that are 65 and older are just over 10% of the population. Kids that are younger than 18 years old are about 22% and children 5 and under makeup about 7% of the population in Sentinel City (Healthcare Learning Innovations, 2018). The primary race in Sentinel City is white, which is 80.6%. Second is African American at 10.4% Native Americans are 2% and Asians are about 4%. Hispanics or Latinos make up 31.5% of the population in Sentinel City (Healthcare Learning Innovations, 2018). In three of the four neighborhoods, Nightingale Square, Acer Tech Center and Casper Park District, White is the dominant ethnicity with Hispanic or Latino being the secondary; however, in Industrial Heights, Hispanic or Latino is the majority and African Americans are the runner-up.
The average household income of Sentinel City is approximately $50,000. Out of the four neighborhoods, Nightingale Square had the highest average income at $269,550 with 0.7% uninsured (Healthcare Learning Innovations, 2018) making this neighborhood the most prosperous. Industrial Heights had the lowest income with just under $25,000 and the highest percentage of uninsured at 37.5%. Casper Park District had the second highest uninsured percentage with almost 23% and the second lowest income at about $80,000. Lastly, Acer Tech Center had an average income of $166,300 and the second lowest percentage of uninsured residents at 1.5% (Healthcare Learning Innovations, 2018). The demographics assessment tool allows the simulation user to get a brief overview of the type of area each neighborhood is based on income, ethnicity and the number of insured citizens. We are able to make inferences that since Industrial Heights has the lowest income and the highest uninsured residents, there should be a strong effort to inform the community of free clinics in the area or offer insurance at a very lost cost.
Neighborhood Safety Assessment
During the simulation, the Neighborhood Safety Assessment/Inventory is used to explore and identify safety hazards in an area. This allowed me to look at the city from a different perspective. While driving through Sentinel City, I was able to notice graffiti on a lot of the buildings, many of which were run down and large amounts of garbage that have been left on the sidewalk. Stray dogs, cats ...
