ATTOM’s Air Pollution DataParticles. Problems. Solutions.
ATTOM Air Pollution Index for Community Health
Air pollution is caused by indoor and outdoor particulate matter that combines with the ozone. Poor air quality contributes to leading causes of death, such as heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, and diabetes, and is estimated to be a major factor in close to one-in-ten deaths globally. ATTOM is answering the growing demand for accurate air pollution data and analytics.
Because air quality affects all of us, ATTOM’s air pollution data serves at-risk populations who seek clean environments in which to live, governments who need effective clean-air policies, and a private sector that must meet the unique needs of its community.
ATTOM Air Pollution Data
ATTOM’s air pollution data provides regulatory, academic, health, and many other sectors with reliable and accurate scientific raw data, such as air quality index (AQI) reports. Our data shows the AQI of locations at the county or city level based on research conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency. A score then represents the relative air quality by combining indices of Ozone, Carbon Monoxide, Lead, Nitrogen Oxide, and Particulate matter and comparing to the national average of 100.
How Can You Use ATTOM’s Air Pollution Data?
Lifestyles are impacted by social factors, such as consumer behavior, the environment, and demographics. Health and home service companies can use air pollution data to understand their markets and the needs of consumers.
Technology and Data Platforms
Air quality is a key data point for visitors of technology data platforms. Researchers, public and private agencies, even car manufacturers and energy companies, are all seeking real-time air pollution data to develop products and policies that better serve the consumer and the environment.
Air quality in schools and academic institutions has been a core issue during the COVID-19 epidemic. ATTOM’s air pollution data helps education institutions, policy makers, and governments to better understand and improve air quality in schools and educational facilities.
