Title of Listing:
|Guide to Selected National Environmental Statistics in the U.S. Government|
|US Environmental Protection Agency-EPA, All Listings|
A Guide to Selected National Environmental Statistics in the U.S. Government is a reference to selected, frequently sought-after, national-level, time-series environmental statistics that are compiled and distributed by the U.S. government on a regular basis. Statistical coverage in the Guide includes data related to state-of-the-environment (e.g., air and water quality, status of biotic resources), pressures on the environment (e.g., energy use, mining, transportation, etc. human health and welfare issues (e.g., exposure to toxic chemicals), and societal responses to environmental problems (e.g., pollution abatement expenditures, cleanup of toxic wastes, etc.). The statistical programs in the Guide are arranged by government department, agency and program title. Each entry contains information about a separate statistical program (e.g., program purpose, data coverage and collection methods, geographic coverage, agency contacts, pertinent publications, and database access options). The Guide also contains an index of over 150 key words and phrases and an index of 55 databases that can be used to locate desired records.
Users can access an electronic digital version of the Guide at the EPA World Wide Web site. In addition, the Guide is available as a hardcopy report through NTIS. Either version of the Guide can be used by starting with the Table of Contents, the Key Word Index, or the Database Index. Statistical programs are listed by title and agency in the Table of Contents. For example, to find out about air quality statistics collected by EPA, use the Table of Contents to find "EPA, the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards," and then the "National Air Pollution Control Program." However, to find statistics on carbon monoxide, search the Key Word Index for carbon monoxide. Either action will lead to the appropriate program or programs.
