SDG Indicator 11.6.2

Indicator 11.6.2 - Exposure to particulate matter
Data for Indicator 11.6.2 depicts the average concentration of particulate matter (PM), the mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air (also known as particle pollution), in the San Diego region. The standard measure for this dataset is PM2.5, or fine inhalable particles with diameters of 2.5 micrometers or smaller.
The graph below shows the annual average concentration of particle pollution in 2016 alongside forecasted concentrations for 2025, 2035, and 2050. The forecasted values are based on scenarios where policies and projects discussed in San Diego Forward: The 2021-2050 Regional Plan are implemented. The “build” scenario incorporates all initiatives proposed in the 2021 Regional plan, whereas the “no-build” scenario only includes those that are currently scheduled for completion.
Data for this Indicator comes from Table T6.2 of the 2021 Regional Plan.
