“CalEnviroScreen is a screening methodology that can be used to help identify California communities that are disproportionately burdened by multiple sources of pollution. This version updates CalEnviroScreen in a variety of ways. The updates are described in more detail in the New in CalEnviroScreen 3.0 document below.

Major changes include:

  • More recent data for all indicators.
  • The addition of two new indicators reflecting health and socioeconomic vulnerability to pollution.
  • Improvements in the way some indicators are calculated to better reflect environmental conditions or a community’s vulnerability to pollution.
  • Additional information on pollution along the California-Mexico border.
  • The removal of the “children and elderly” age indicator, and replacement with an analysis of age.
  • A change in overall scoring methodology that enables each of the four categories of indicators to make a clearer contribution to a census tract’s overall CalEnviroScreen score.”
