Health in Miami, Florida

Health is ranked on a scale of 1 (worst) to 100 (best).

Miami air quality is 53. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment. This analysis models respiratory illness and cancer risk down to the zip code level, providing better detail and insight than the previous analysis based solely on results from air monitoring stations.

Miami water quality is 50. (The US average is 55.)
