New Maps and data now available for Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators Score

| 0

New data available for RSEI Scores by state and county for the year 2019. A RSEI Score is a unitless value that accounts for the size of the chemical release, the fate and transport of the chemical through the environment, the size and location of the exposed population, and the chemical’s toxicity. RSEI scores are designed to be compared to each other. A RSEI Score 10 times higher than another RSEI Score suggests that the potential for risk is 10 times higher.
