The Non-occupational Pesticide Exposure Study was the first attempt to develop a methodology for measuring the potential exposure of specified populations to common pesticides. In the study, as in other studies utilizing the Total Exposure Assessment Methodology (TEAM), the exposures were related to actual use patterns. A selected list of 32 household pesticides were evaluated in two different cities during the study. Air samples were collected over a 24-hour period in indoor, outdoor and personal microenvironments. In addition, limited water and dermal contact samples were collected for selected homes. The study households were selected from stratified random population samples in two urbanized areas. The samples were collected over several seasons in areas contrasting a relatively high and low use of pesticides. Dietary recall, activity pattern, and pesticide use data were collected through survey questionnaires. The report discusses the results of the study with an emphasis on the various routes of exposure (air, water, dermal, and indirectly, food) and their relative contribution to total human exposure.
