Contents Notes
This summary provides information on how to calculate human exposure to toxic substances and ranges of values for body weight, skin surface area, and ventilation rates. Percentile distribution of body weight were computed from the Second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES II) data base computer program. Distributions of skin surface areas were similarly calculated from NHANES height and weight data by applying regression equations. Insufficient data precluded the development of distributions of ventilation rates. Activity pattern information is presented to permit the calculation of time-weighted average ventilation rates. This Project Summary was developed by EPA's Office of Health and Environmental Assessment, Washington, DC, to announce key findings of the research project that is fully documented in a separate report of the same title.
