The National Center for Environmental Assessment has prepared this handbook to address factors commonly used in exposure assessments. This handbook was first published in 1989 in response to requests from many EPA Program and Regional offices for additional guidance on how to select values for exposure assessments.
This document provides a summary of the available data on consumption of drinking water; consumption of fruits, vegetables, beef, dairy products, and fish; soil ingestion; inhalation rates; skin surface area; soil adherence; lifetime; activity patterns; body weight; consumer product use; and the reference residence.
However, in 2009-10, the handbook is being revised to incorporate new data available since the final released in 1997. This will undergo product review and the final report will be posted on the EPA/NCEA Web site.
