University of Washington: Popular map for exploring environmental health disparities, vulnerabilities in Washington gets an update. “Map users can create data visualizations to see environmental health risks and compare census tracts based on dozens of factors, such as existing levels of pollution that include ozone concentration, PM2.5, diesel emissions, lead risks in homes, proximity to heavilytrafficked roads, industrial or waste treatment facilities and Superfund sites. Included also are socioeconomic factors such as English proficiency, education levels, housing affordability and employment statistics, birthweights and prevalence of cardiovascular disease.”
