Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Overview

This environmental justice screening and mapping tool provides demographic and environmental data layers to identify communities that are disproportionately affected by environmental hazards. When combined, these two data types create environmental justice indexes that give a clearer picture of communities adversely affected. This tool is intended to be used at the screening level as a user-defined interface to identify areas that are at potential risk. In most cases, data resolution is at the census block group level.
