The EPA calculates 12 Environmental Justice Indices based on a combination of environmental and demographic information. An EJ Index combines demographic factors with a single environmental variable. The EJ Index is higher in block groups with large numbers of mainly low-income and/or minority residents with a higher environmental indicator value.The higher the percentile, the higher the block group ranks compared to other block groups for any given index.
