Advancing environmental justice requires refined information on environmental emissions and exposures, health effects, and social determinants of health. This is in addition to screening level information available through EJ mapping tools from California and other states as well as EPA. For this reason, we are providing three examples of cutting-edge data systems on environment and public health, i.e., Wisconsin DOH’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program, Texas CEQ’s emission events database, and EPA’s Toxic Release Inventory.
