The EQI was developed in four parts: domain identification; data source acquisition; variable construction; and data reduction. Five. Environmental Inequality, Industrial Activity, and Stress. The field of environmental inequality studies arose in the late s and early s in response to claims made by environmental justice activists that poor, working class, and people of color communities are disproportionately exposed to environmental pollutants, are angry about their disproportionate exposure, and want the burden of.
