Health in Rock Island, Illinois

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

Rock Island air quality is 73. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

The EPA has a complex method of measuring watershed quality using 15 indicators such as pH, chemicals, metals, and bacteria.
