Data Project Shows School Air Quality
USA Today finished the year with a large-scale data project showing impact rates of industrial pollution on the nation’s schools.
“The Smokestack Effect: Toxic Air and America’s Schools,” took eight months to put together and includes searchable databases of pollution statistics and a map showing schools with the highest levels of toxic air.
Visitors can search the results by school, by city or by state to see how the air quality at any given institution compares to others across the country.
In addition, the feature has video reports including interviews with industrial pollution experts.
USA Today says it has analysed data covering a total of 128,000 public schools across the United States.
