Abstract For EPA to truly measure the progress in achieving cleaner air, safer water, and better protected land resources, the Agency must go beyond its historic reliance on process indicators (e.g., decreased emissions/discharges, increased facilities in compliance) to measuring actual changes in ecological and human health outcomes. Process indicators served the Agency and Nation well in the first 30 years of EPA's existence, during which large gains were made in achieving cleaner air, safer water and reduction of land-based pollution (e.g., waste sites, pesticides). However, to justify the costs associated with further incremental improvements may require a more direct demonstration of the benefits to ecological and human health. Whereas the Office of Research and Development's (ORD's) programs have traditionally focused on research to better inform the Agency's risk assessments and risk management decisions, a program is presently to be initiated that would assess the environmental public health outcomes (EPHO) of those decisions and directly support the goals presented.
