Air quality

Description

Air quality is represented by the AirMix Health Risk Index. Values were developed using a new approach to communicate the health risks associated with exposure to multiple air pollutants. The AirMix Health Risk Index represents the additive excess risk of respiratory morbidity associated with exposure to NO2, O3, and PM-2.5 as derived from a meta-analysis of epidemiology studies in the U.S. Air pollution concentrations from 2013-2015 were used to calculate the index.
