The document provides the findings of a national survey on pesticide use in and around the home, and is sponsored by EPA. The Agency's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) performs risk/benefit analyses for home and garden pesticide registrations that will be better informed using the survey data. Survey data on frequency of use and safety precautions will be used in risk assessments. Data on pests and sites treated and on consumer satisfaction will be used in benefit analyses. The survey is in three parts. The volume is the executive summary of the survey. It contains study objectives and target population; summary description of the sampling design; and overview of results.
