America's Children and the Environment (ACE)

America's Children and the Environment October 2019

From the introduction:

report coverRead the news releaseAmerica's Children and the Environment is EPA's report presenting data on children and environmental health. America's Children and the Environment brings together information from a variety of sources to provide national children's environmental health indicators. This booklet presents a selection of these indicators that were updated in 2019 with newly available data. The full set of America's Children and the Environment indicators is available on the America's Children and the Environment website at: https://www.epa.gov/americaschildrenenvironment.

This report is motivated by EPA's belief that it is valuable to be aware of, and to share with the public, information on trends in children's environmental health. The purpose of America's Children and the Environment is to compile information, and make it available to a broad audience, that can help identify areas that warrant additional attention, potential issues of concern, and persistent problems. EPA hopes that the development and presentation of these indicators will motivate continuing research, additional data collection, and, when appropriate, necessary interventions.
