Title: EJSCREEN Indexes State Percentiles 2019
Abstract: EJSCREEN is an environmental justice (EJ) screening and mapping tool that provides EPA with a nationally consistent dataset and methodology for calculating "EJ indexes," which can be used for highlighting places that may be candidates for further review, analysis, or outreach as the agency develops programs, policies and other activities. This dataset provides state-level percentiles for EJ Indexes and Secondary EJ Indexes for all EJSCREEN environmental indicators (NATA Cancer Risk, NATA Repiratory Hazard Index, NATA Diesel PM, Traffic Proximity, Lead Paint Indicator, Superfund Site Proximity, RMP Facility Proximity, TSDF Facility Proximity, Waterwater Discharge Indicator, NAA Ozone, and NAA PM 2.5).
Purpose: Provides state-level mapping and reporting support of EJ Indexes to the EJSCREEN application.
