EPA's Report on the Environment: External Review Draft



Where You Live

While the ROE focuses on national-level indicators, it also presents indicators at sub-national (regional and state) scales when sufficient data are available to depict a representative trend.

Why does the ROE present trends at regional and state scales?

National-level indicators show conditions or trends for the United States as a whole, but they might mask important variations at regional or state scales—for example, if an indicator is increasing in some regions and decreasing in others. Sub-national data, when available, can provide important insights into conditions and trends at regional and state scales.

How are sub-national data presented in the ROE?

  • Multiple resolution levels. For 10 indicators, you can use interactive mapping tools to explore the data and zoom to a regional, state, and in some cases local level.
  • National data by EPA Region. Some indicators present national data broken out by EPA Region. EPA Regions play an important role in the way the Agency's environmental protection efforts are implemented. They follow state borders and do not reflect natural boundaries based on physiography, climate, or biota.
  • National data by other boundaries. Some indicators present national data broken out by other types of boundaries, including natural boundaries such as ecoregions or watersheds.
  • Particular regions. A few indicators only present data for a particular region, such as an EPA Region or a regional ecosystem of national significance (e.g., Gulf of Mexico, Chesapeake Bay). These indicators are not necessarily representative of similar trends in other regions or in the nation as a whole, and they may or may not scale up to national indicators.

How can I view exhibits with data relevant to a particular region or state?
