12/13/09: This is the first year in TRI's over 20 year history that the data has been released during the same year that it was collected. Over the last few days, since the 8th, we have been working hard to bring all the relevant data, documents and information about the TRI National Analysis (formerly the TRI Public Data Release) together on these pages. At present, we have both the basis and basic-plus data available for download. We have also created state fact sheets in PDF format. We are working on ArcGIS shapefiles and plan on having them available by mid-week. We will also be adding relevant documentation and Google Earth and Google Map KML and KMZ data files.
