American Lung Association State of the Air 2013

US MapThanks to the Clean Air Act, the United States continues to make progress providing healthier air. The “State of the Air 2013” shows that the nation’s air quality is overall much cleaner, especially compared to just a decade ago. Still, over 131.8 million people—42 percent of the nation—live where pollution levels are too often dangerous to breathe. Despite that risk, some seek to weaken the Clean Air Act, the public health law that has driven the cuts in pollution since 1970.

The “State of the Air 2013” report looks at levels of ozone and particle pollution in 2009, 2010, and 2011 across the United States. The report uses the most current quality-assured data available nationwide for these analyses—data collected by states, tribes and federal agencies from local monitors.
