The National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS), administered by EPA/OTS, is an on-going chemical monitoring network designed to detect levels and prevalences of toxic substances in the adipose tissue of the general U.S. population. Adipose specimens collected in fiscal year 1982 were analyzed as composites for volatile and semivolatile organic compounds via HRGC/MS as part of a previous effort. The data files were then processed to determine the occurrence of compounds selected from the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) Title III Toxic Chemical Listing, and from the SARA Section 110 CERCLA listing of 100 hazardous substances. A total of 61 volatile and 120 semivolatile target compounds were selected for analysis from the listings based on their predicted suitability to the analytical method. Application of target compound analysis (TCA) to 46 composited adipose tissue samples resulted in the identification of 13 volatile and 19 semivolatile compounds. Frequency of occurrence data was compiled with respect to three age groups, four census regions and nine census divisions.
