Percentile for California
1. Census tracts shaded grey have percentile scores of zero, which indicates that monitoring or reporting was conducted, but no impacts were present or that no population met the state's criteria.
2. Census tracts with no shading are listed as "N/A," which means no monitoring or reporting was conducted, no population was reported or that census estimates for that category were highly unreliable.
3. For details on the scoring criteria and methodology, view Cal/EPA's report on CalEnviroScreen.
