A review of the annual 1996 data for five of the six criteria pollutants (lead excluded): Ozone (O3); Sulfur Dioxide (SO2); Carbon Monoxide (CO); Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2); and Paricles (PM10) was performed on the precision and accuracy data for reporting organizations as submitted to the EPA's Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS) database. This review yieled a national average with upper and lower probability limits for each pollutant which holds 95% of the stations data. A national review revealed that the overall quality of the nation's ambient air monitoring data was within acceptable guidelines. A review of the 1996 annual precision and accuracy data was also performed. This document fulfills the requirement within the 40 CFR Part 58 Appendix A for an annual report concerning the precision and accuracy data submitted to the EPA from the state and local agencies.
