Supplementary notes

*O3 = Ozone, NO2 = Nitrogen Dioxide, SO2 = sulfur dioxide, PM10 = particulate matter 10 micrometers or less in diameter, PM2.5 = particulate matter 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter.

Not every site in the automatic monitoring network is included. Sites must also meet certain data capture targets to be used in the index. Urban sites are required to monitor PM10 and rural sites are required to monitor ozone. For the required pollutants data capture should be more than or equal to 75% of the year.For ozone this applies to both the full year and the summer period in isolation.
