The American Lung Association has issued its annual State of Air report.

Here is the related article:

Here is the summary of America's most polluted cities:

The nation's 10 most polluted cities in terms of ozone.
City State Average ozone level (2005-2006)
Los Angeles CA 138.8
Bakersfield CA 110.5
Visalia-Porterville CA 101.2
Fresno-Madera CA 62.7
Houston TX 53.7
Sacramento CA 49.7
Dallas TX 38.8
Charlotte NC 37
Phoenix AZ 36.5
El Centro CA 32.8

The nation's 10 most polluted cities by amount of particulates.
Metro area State Average particles level (2005-2007)
Bakersfield CA 20.3
Pittsburgh CA 19.8
Visalia CA 19.3
Birmingham AL 18.9
Hanford CA 17.6
Fresno CA 17.4
Cincinnati OH 17.3
Detroit MI 17.2
Los Angeles CA 17.1
Cleveland OH 16.8

While this data does not have direct correlations with real estate price, I certainly want to avoid living in these cities.

As for the LA, I found air fairly clean near the coast. But in inland, it is quite bad. In terms of that, it has correlations with real estate price!

Happy Investing!!!
