Updates to EPA’s Report on the Environment

EPA is announcing three new updates to the online Report on the Environment (ROE).

EPA’s ROE — released in 2015 —  is an interactive resource that shows how the conditions of the environment and human health in the United States are changing over time. Over 80 indicators, detailing the status or trend of various aspects of the nation’s environment or human health, are organized into five themes: Air, Water, Land, Human Exposure and Health, and Ecological Condition.

The latest changes include three updated video guides to help navigate the website, new drinking water “Featured Indicator” on the home page, and updated data for 31 indicators

Data used in the ROE are gathered from EPA, state and federal agencies, and non-governmental organizations, and are peer-reviewed to meet high standards for accuracy, representativeness, and reliability. EPA updates the ROE indicators on a rolling basis to provide the latest available data and adds new indicators when relevant.
