Prepared for the US Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Policy, Planning, and Evaluation, this paper was a refinement of the OECD's "Pressure-State-Response (PSR) Framework" for environmental information systems, adding an "Effects" category for attributed relationships between two or more Pressure, State, and/or Response variables, resulting in the “PSR/E” framework. Human driving forces of environmental change, and pressures of non-human origin are also included in the framework. Distinctions are made in terms of specific sub-categories in which the State of the environment can be measured, and the types of entities making Responses.
