Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) Model

RSEI Data Dictionary: Averaged Block Group Microdata

                                                               Tables in the RSEI Data Dictionary
Facility NAICS Submission Disaggregated Microdata Census Crosswalks
EPA Program IDs (Reporters) Chemical Release Aggregated Microdata Population Data
Offsite MCL Elements Block Group Microdata Shapefiles
EPA Program IDs (Off-sites) Media Category Water Microdata  

These files are the same as the aggregated Microdata files, but instead of being presented at the grid cell level, the values are averaged over Census block groups. The file BG_RSEI_XXXX_3yr is a csv file with the block group-level data averaged over 2012 through 2014. There are also shape files (tl_2010_bg_US_RSEI) with the same data; that is, the .dbf file and the .csv have the same fields.

Averaged Block Group Microdata

Field Number

Name

Description

1

GEOID10

US Census Block Group ID

2

ALAND10

Land area of the block group (m2)

3

AWATER10

Water area of the block group (m2)

4

TOXCONC

Average toxicity-weighted concentration of the cells in the block group, averaged over three years.

5

PTOXCONC

Percentile associated with field TOXCONC.

6

SCORE

Average risk-related score (surrogate dose * toxicity weight * population) of the cells in the block group, averaged over three years.

7

PSCORE

Percentile associated with field SCORE.

8

NCSCORE

Average risk-related score (surrogate dose * toxicity weight * population) of the cells in the block group, averaged over three years. Score is calculated using only noncancer toxicity weights.

11

PCSCORE

Percentile associated with field CSCORE.

12

POP

Average population of the cells in the block group, averaged over three years.

13

PPOP

Percentile associated with field POP.

14

COVERED

Internal field.
