About the AQHI:

The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is a scale that helps one examine the relationship between air quality and health. An individual can utilize the AQHI to make decisions about his or her exposure to air pollution by modifying the time spent outdoors.

Pollutants measured include: Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Particulate Matter (PM2.5/PM10), and Ozone (O3).

The AQHI is updated hourly and includes data for the day in which you are looking at the AQHI, the night of, and the next day.

Check the AQHI of your city (or closet location with available data):

If the air quality in your city or town posses a risk to your child's health, try to engage your child in indoor activities.
