    Este trabalho objetivou construir o Índice de Investimento na Qualidade Ambiental (IIQA) para os Estados Brasileiros, utilizando a metodologia de análise fatorial através do método de componentes principais. Os resultados apontaram que os Estados das regiões Sul e Sudeste apresentam os maiores índices de investimentos na qualidade ambiental, com destaque para o Estado de São Paulo. A região centro-oeste demonstrou índices intermediários, porém nesta região está localizado o 2° maior índice de investimento em qualidade do meio ambiente que pertence ao Distrito Federal. Em contrapartida os Estados das regiões Nordeste e Norte possuem os piores índices, sendo os Estados de Amapá e Rondônia, os que menos investem na melhoria da qualidade ambiental.-------------------------------This work objectified to construct the Index of Investment in ambient quality (IIAQ) for the Brazilian States, using the methodology of factorial analysis through the method of main components.
