dc.description.abstract Exposure to environmental hazards and pollution leads to deleterious health outcomes, and low-income and communities of color are disproportionately burdened. The present study utilizes the publicly available dataset “CalEnviroScreen3.0” to conduct a quantitative analysis of socioeconomic predictors of pollution burden in Sacramento County to better-inform local environmental justice efforts. Even when controlling for other socioeconomic variables, poverty most significantly predicted pollution burden (b=0.27, p < .001). Social workers should help initiate interdisciplinary collaboration and advocate for low-income communities to decrease disproportionate exposure to pollution and resulting negative health outcomes. en_US
