Climate Data: Particulate Matter Index

Location – Location – Location; the age-old advice when opening a business is just as true today as it has ever been. There are many factors to take into consideration from property accessibility to a well-matched customer base to operating costs and more. Additionally, environmental conditions and regulations can also play a significant role when making location decisions.

If you have an outdoor business concept, your customers and employees can be impacted by air pollution. Our climate dataset includes five air pollution indexes: Carbon Monoxide; Lead; Nitrogen Dioxide; Ozone; and Particulate Matter. Below is a map of the US depicting areas of particulate matter pollution at the county level. Areas with a lower propensity for this type of pollution are shown in light yellow, while those with higher propensities are shown in dark orange.
