Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) Model

RSEI Documentation and Help

Methodology and Input Data Descriptions

EasyRSEI

  • EasyRSEI online help explains how to use EasyRSEI, a downloadable application for accessing RSEI results.

Microdata 

Data Dictionary

RSEI Results Definitions

  • RSEI results definitions provide detailed explanations for RSEI Score, RSEI Hazard, and other kinds of RSEI results found in EasyRSEI or in the Geographic Microdata.

RSEI Bibliography

  • RSEI bibliography contains a partial list of studies and books that include RSEI data. RSEI is often used in academic studies, particularly for environmental justice analyses.

Supporting Analyses

  • Analyses Performed for the Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators contains three parts:
    • Part A describes the result of a ground-truthing analyses performed to determine the accuracy of the air pathway modeling;
    • Part B contains additional analyses performed on the air pathway to determine optimal modeling parameters; and
    • Part C describes the results of an analysis of a Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code-based stack parameter data.
  • Developing the Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators describes the development of the RSEI model, and outlines options that were considered for several important aspects of the method.
