Sensitivity Analysis of the CalEnviroScreen Model and Indicators: OEHHA applied a series of statistical analyses, as well as simpler numerical and graphical comparisons, to answer questions about the CalEnviroScreen model and the confidence in the results. The results of the sensitivity analysis on the January 2013 draft that informed the finalization of Version 1.0 of the CalEnviroScreen are presented in this document.

The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) and the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) announce the availability of the California Communities Environmental Health Screening Tool, Version 1 (CalEnviroScreen 1.0). This tool presents the nation’s first comprehensive screening methodology to identify California communities that are disproportionately burdened by multiple sources of pollution and presents the statewide results of the analysis using the screening tool. A report describing the methodology and results along with an online mapping application are available.
