  1. EHS Economics and health systems, EHESS Environmental health, ecological systems and sustainability, ESMPH Epidemiology, social medicine and public health, HGDS Health geography, demography and sociology. The symbols identify the groups where responses were found to be statistically different. Pairs of equal symbols identify the groups where panelist’s response differ significantly from each other. Example: the responses given by the EHS group of panelists (|□) on the indicator “Annual mean concentrations of Particulate Matter – PM2.5 (ug/m3)” differed significantly from the answers presented by the EHESS () and the HGDS (□) groups
