Annual air quality statements
Each year we summarise the data collected from the Air Quality Monitoring Network into an annual statement. These statements provide information on particle and gaseous pollutants monitored throughout the state, comparing levels to national standards and highlighting the sources and climatic conditions over the year. Focus areas are often included outlining significant events or regions of interest, such as the Hunter industry-funded networks.
NSW annual air quality statement 2021 is the latest statement available. Air quality in New South Wales met national standards between 93% and 100% of the time across regions in 2021, an improvement compared with 2020.
