You can also view TRI facility locations along with the demographic characteristics of the communities where they are located. Use the toggle option to display the “Community Profile,” which shows community demographics using EPA’s demographic index or supplemental demographic index. Use the Data to Display dropdown to select the metric to display. Use the Search bar to generate a fact sheet about an area of interest.
In addition to viewing maps based on release quantities, you can also view maps based on risk-screening scores, which are estimates of relative potential risks to human health following exposure to TRI chemicals. These unitless risk-screening scores (RSEI Score) are generated by EPA's Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) model, and allow you to compare the relative potential for human health impacts across various locations. For more on RSEI, see the Potential Risks from TRI Chemicals section.
As with any dataset, there are many factors to consider when using the TRI data. Find a summary of key factors associated with data used in the National Analysis in the Introduction. For more information see Factors to Consider When Using Toxics Release Inventory Data.
