Users of the Exposure Factors Handbook (EPA/600.P-95/002Fa-c) expressed the need to fit distributions to the data in the Handbook to assist them when applying probabilistic methods to exposure assessment. The purpose of this document is to fulfill this need. The document summarizes a system of procedures to fit distributions to selected data from the Exposure Factors Handbook. Three factors - tap water intake, population mobility, and inhalation rates - are used as test cases in the document. The system used includes components for models, estimation, assessment of fit, and uncertainty. Eight models were tested including: generalized F, generalized gamma, Burr, gamma, lognormal, Weibull, log-logistic, and exponential. The document provides recommendations on the models that provide the best fit.
