You should look at least at total expenditure, total insured, federal Medicaid/ Medicare expenditure, Average cost per resident, State matching rate for federal dollars, etc.
After your comparison, reflect upon the differences in healthcare between your state and the two comparative states, and how we as a nation can provide equal, accessible, and affordable healthcare for all citizens.
