a and b Allocation of Finnish health centre areas to clusters by their ACSC rates with trajectory modelling. Health centre areas allocated to a single cluster share the similar level and development of age-standardized rates (per 100,000 person-years) of three subgroups of ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) in 1996–2013. Box and whisker plots represent the distribution (the median, interquartile range, interquartile range × 1.5 and outliers) of these rates between health centre areas based on each ACSC subgroup, cluster and year. Note the different ranges of y-axis between subgroups and genders. The health centre areas in the map are coloured by the clusters they were allocated to, while thicker black lines mark the borders of hospital districts. SW = southwestern cluster, C = central cluster, N = northern cluster. Adapted and built on the municipality based statistical units, Statistics Finland [32].
