We have replicated this index for Louisville and included factors important to our community.

Participatory Science

Citizen Science is when ordinary people collaborate with scientists and contribute to scientific research by participating in projects that aim to increase our knowledge about the world. Citizen Scientists provide data about their everyday experiences so we can begin to understand the connections between our health, environment, and choices. Interested in participating? Visit here.
