 Received from the EPA

The Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ) at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is excited to announce the launch of the EJSCREEN User Survey! The information collected will be used to catalog the diverse ways people are using EJSCREEN to support their analysis of environmental justice concerns in their personal and professional lives. Survey responses will also help EPA to identify opportunities to continue developing and improving this tool.

EJSCREEN is an environmental justice mapping and screening tool that provides EPA with a nationally consistent dataset and approach for combining environmental and demographic indicators. EJSCREEN users choose a geographic area; the tool then provides demographic and environmental information for that area. All of the EJSCREEN indicators are publicly-available data.

Your feedback has been responsible for every new feature in EJSCREEN that has been added so we can continue to enhance it based on your needs. So please take a quick three minutes to fill out the survey so we can continually improve it for environmental justice analysis and education.

Please direct all comments, questions, or suggestions about the EJSCREEN User Survey to Oneyemaechi Nweke via email, phone (202.566.2314) or by mail (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington DC 20460 Mail Code: 2201A)
