The report presents and analyses the information stored in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Interim Data Base for State and Local Air Toxic Volatile Organic Chemical Measurements. The Data Base contains information on volatile organic chemical (VOC) data obtained from ten participating agencies at 126 monitoring sites, measuring either VOCs or benzo(a)pyrene. Air quality summary statistics are presented for 51 pollutants. Statistical distributions of estimated annual means are presented for 12 VOC pollutants, measured in California, and 8 VOC pollutants, measured outside of California. Comparisons are made between California and nonCalifornia data. The VOC data are summarized by location, sampling method, analytical method, start and end sampling dates, units of measurement, the number of observations, minimum detection limit, the mean and maximum concentrations and averaging time of the sample.
