Health in Atkinson, North Carolina

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

Atkinson air quality is 75. (The US average is 58.)
This is based on new measures of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA, called the National Air Toxics Assessment.

Atkinson water quality is 75. (The US average is 55.)
Note that this is a measure of Watershed quality, not the water that comes from your faucet. The EPA has stated that a healthy watershed is closely related to drinking water quality. The EPA has a complex method of measuring watershed quality using 15 indicators such as pH, chemicals, metals, and bacteria.

Atkinson Superfund Index is 99. (The US average is 87.)
