Query Builder for Air Quality Index for Utah Counties and Core-Based Statistical Area (CBSA) - Percent of Days by Air Quality Index Category

Overview

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a tool for reporting daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your air is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. The AQI data in this IBIS-Q query module have been derived from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Air Quality System Data Mart. The data include values for Utah counties or Utah core based statistical areas (CBSA). AQI is an indicator of overall air quality because it considers all the criteria air pollutants measured within a geographic area. Although AQI includes all available pollutant measurements, you should be aware that many areas have monitoring stations for some, but not all, of the pollutants. Furthermore, not all counties or CBSAs have air quality monitors.

Maximum AQI Value

The Maximum AQI value is the highest daily AQI value in the year.
