A study of indoor air quality in four office buildings was carried out in 1989 near Washington, DC. Three buildings were used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the fourth by the Library of Congress (LOC). A questionnaire was provided to approximately 5000 employees of the EPA and about 3500 employees of the LOC. An analysis of 3948 completed EPA questionnaires has been carried out. The main objective of the present study was to perform identical analyses on the EPA and LOC data sets separately to determine 'robust' relationships between symptoms and workplace or personal characteristics. An additional objective was to expand the analyses to include not only the 'last year' health symptoms but also the 'last week' and job-related symptoms as well. Finally, several questions concerning absenteeism and productivity have been newly analyzed.
