Service Description: This map service is based on data from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Quality Index (EQI) project. The US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Public Health & Environmental Systems Division (PHESD) in the Center for Public Health & Environmental Assessment (CPHEA) is currently engaged in research aimed at developing a measure that estimates overall environmental quality at the county level for the United States. A better way to calculate overall environmental quality is needed for researchers who study the environment and its effects on human health. The EQI was developed for all counties in the United States for the period 2006-2010. The EQI represents five areas (called “domains”) of the environment: [1] air, [2] water, [3] land, [4] built, and [5] sociodemographic. In addition to the EQI, there is an index for each of the five domains. The EQI accounts for environmental differences between urban and rural areas by grouping counties into one of four rural-urban continuum codes (RUCCs), ranging from highly urban to rural-isolated areas. NOTE: low EQI scores represent better environmental quality while higher EQI scores represent poorer environmental quality. For more information on the development of the EQI, there is an overview report as well as a more detailed technical report at Access constraints: None. Use constraints: None. Please check sources, scale, accuracy, currency and other available information. Please confirm that you are using the most recent copy of both data and metadata. Acknowledgement of the EPA would be appreciated.
