About air quality index values

Our scientists create an air quality index by converting measured pollutant concentrations into index values which make it easier to interpret air quality data by reducing the complexity associated with pollutant concentrations.

The index value is the pollutant concentration expressed as a proportion of the National Environment Protection Measure for Ambient Air Quality (Air NEPM) standard or the Environmental Protection (Air) Policy 2008 (Air EPP) objective.
