In November 2001, EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman directed the Agency to bring together its national, regional and program office data to produce a report on the state of the environment. The report would represent the first step of the Environmental Indicators Initiative, a multi-year process that would ultimately allow future EPA administrators to better measure and report on progress toward environmental and human health goals and to ensure the Agencys accountability to the public. This report is part of EPA's continuing effort to identify, improve, and utilize environmental indicators in its planning, management, and public reporting. EPA's specific strategies and performance targets to protect human health and the environment are presented in the Agency's strategic and annual plans. These planning and performance documents, together with the questions, indicators and data presented in these reports, will allow EPA to better define and measure the status and trends in environment and health, and to better measure the effectiveness of its programs and activities.
