Two designs for a national survey of radon in schools were developed by Research Triangle Institute. The survey designs were submitted to the National Radon Survey Review Subcommittee of the Science Advisory Board's Radiation Advisory Committee for review. The Subcommittee found either design to be statistically valid, but considered Design option II to be the better protocol. However, the Subcommittee strongly urges the EPA to consider long-term radon measurements during occupancy more representative of acutal exposure than the two-day weekend charcoal canister measurements planned by the Office of Radiation Programs.
