Task 8


Module 3 — Task 8: Select Standards Against Which Local Status Can Be Compared

At the completion of this task, the assessment team should have:

  • Appropriate standards—national, state, local, and community-driven—against which environmental health status can be compared.

The next step is to determine what the indicators tell about the relative status of the community’s environmental health. Standards, or benchmarks, provide a point of comparison for the community’s environmental health status. They may come from the state or national level, from a peer community, or from the community itself as it seeks to document attainment of goals over time.
