By the Numbers: Pollution and Public Health

This state-by-state map pairs pollution and public health statistics, revealing what is at stake if the Affordable Care Act and environmental regulations are repealed.

Much is at stake for public health if the Affordable Care Act and environmental regulations are repealed. This map, created by the Center for American Progress, demonstrates how many adults and children have asthma and how many residents rely on the Affordable Care Act for access to health insurance in each state. The map also provides state-by-state data on how much pollution is pumped into the water and air each year.

Myriam Alexander-Kearns is a Policy Analyst for the Energy Policy team at the Center for American Progress.

The author would like to thank Jonathon Padron and Thomas Huelskoetter for their contributions to this map.
