This dataset includes the yearly block group level decomposed concentrations of four spatial components ("long-range", "mid-range", "neighborhood", "near-source") for PM2.5 and NO2, from year-2000 to year-2015. The concentrations are at the census block group level. The unit of concentrations is ug/m3 for PM2.5 and ppb for NO2. Block group is identified by variable "blockgroup_id"; the longitude and latitude of each block group centroid are indicated by "longitude" and "latitude". Names of concentration variables follow the pattern as "COMPONENT_YEAR". "COMPONENT" represents four spatial components; "YEAR" represents the last two digits of year-2000 to year-2015. For example, "long-range_00" represents the "long-range" component concentrations for the year-2000.
