For data sources, tools, and approaches to air district assessment, please refer to the Community Air Protection Program Data Sources for Developing Assessments.
Preliminary Table of Metrics
CARB staff developed a Statewide Assessment of the cumulative air pollution exposure burdens in impacted communities to help support staff’s selection of communities to recommend for consideration by the CARB Governing Board in the first year of the Program. CARB will update this information as necessary, annually.
The statewide data in these tables will complement more detailed local community-level assessments that will be part of community recommendation submittals by air districts and community-based organizations. CARB staff will draw on the data presented in the table of metrics along with analyses conducted by air districts and community-based organizations to support the Statewide Assessment.
