particulate air pollution in the United States, (although the San Joaquin Valley in central California had the worst

overall air pollution). Air pollution in the Los Angeles region is still an issue, although improvements have been made over the years. But the problem is exacerbated in the Inland Empire, which is surrounded by mountains on the north and the east. Prevailing winds move bad air eastward from Los Angeles, but once the pollution reaches the Inland Empire it cannot be carried further east as it becomes trapped by the mountains surrounding the region.

The '''Inland Empire''' ('''I.E.''') is a metropolitan area and region of Southern California. It is situated directly east of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The term "Inland Empire" is most commonly used in reference to the U.S. Census Bureau federally defined '''Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario metropolitan area''', which covers more than 27,000 square miles (70,000 km 2 ). The metropolitan area consists of Riverside County (Riverside County, California) and San Bernardino County (San Bernardino County, California).

According to the Census Bureau, the counties of San Bernardino and Riverside are home to over 4 million people, and together they comprise the 13th-most populous (Table of United States Metropolitan Statistical Areas) metropolitan area in the United States, and the third-most populous (California census statistical areas) in the state of California. Most of the area's population is located in the southwest of San Bernardino County and the northwest of Riverside County. At the end of the 19th century, the Inland Empire was a major center of agriculture, including citrus, dairy, and wine-making. Agriculture declined through the 20th century, and since the 1970s a rapidly growing population, fed by families migrating in search of affordable housing, has led to more residential, industrial, and commercial development. The U.S. Census Bureau also combines the Los Angeles metropolitan area and the Inland Empire into one larger region known as the Greater Los Angeles Area with a population of over 17 million.
