Highlights of the Exposure Factors Handbook (Final Report)
Notice EPA announces the availability of the final report, Highlights of the Exposure Factors Handbook (EPA/600/R-10/030).
Information in the Exposure Factors Handbook and in this Highlights document has been summarized from studies documented in the scientific literature and other publicly available sources. Studies were chosen that were seen as useful and appropriate for estimating exposure factors for both adults and children. The Handbook contains summaries of selected studies published through July 2011. Certain studies described in the Handbook are designated as "key," that is, the most up-to-date and scientifically sound for deriving recommendations for exposure factors. The recommended values for most exposure factors are based on the results of the key studies. Other studies designated as “relevant,” meaning applicable or pertinent, but not necessarily the most important, are also summarized in the Handbook.
