Abstract
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 assessment. Data on pests and sites treated and on consumer satisfaction will be used in benefit analyses. The survey is in three parts. The volume covers the survey design, implementation, and analysis methods. Contents include sampling design; developing survey instruments; field operations; data processing; sampling weights; and statistical analysis methods.
