The Exposure Factors Handbook: 2011 Edition is the update of an earlier version prepared in 1997 (U.S. EPA, 1997). Its purpose is to (1) summarize data on human behaviors and characteristics that affect exposure to environmental contaminants, and (2) recommend values to use for these factors. These recommendations are not legally binding on any U.S. EPA program and should be interpreted as suggestions that program offices or individual exposure assessors can consider and modify as needed. Many of these factors are best quantified on a site- or situation-specific basis. The decision as to whether to use site-specific or national values for an assessment may depend on the quality of the competing data sets as well as on the purpose of the specific assessment. The Handbook includes full discussions of the issues that assessors should consider in deciding how to use these data and recommendations. The Handbook reviews and summarizes data on the various factors used in the exposure assessment. It contains 19 chapters.
