Supplementary notes

The Citeair Index indicates the quality of air based on the amount of pollutants carried in the air, including nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and particle matter (PM10). A lower score means cleaner air. The region displayed in this statistic is known as the Paris agglomeration. The scale can be interpreted as follows:

- 0 - 25 is very low
- 25 - 50 is low
- 50 - 75 is medium
- 75 - >100 is high
- Any value higher than 100 is very high.
