ARCHIVED: 2007-2015 Litter Index

The datasets below have been archived and will not receive further updates, but remain available for reference. The up-to-date and more comprehensive Litter Index is available here and will be updated annually going forward. For those conducting analysis using Litter Index data, please be advised that the survey design between the 2007- 2015 data is vastly different from the 2017 data, so it would not make sense to compare the two.

The Litter Index is used to compare the relative cleanliness of different areas of the city of Philadelphia.
