Accurate exposure classification tools are required to link exposure with health effects in epidemiological studies. Long-term, time-integrated exposure measures would be desirable to address the problem of developing appropriate residential childhood exposure classifications. Screening techniques are also of interest that could focus attention on the most highly exposed (to indicator compounds) populations for which costly multiroute, multimedia monitoring would be most informative. This report presents the results of a literature review that was designed to investigate and/or evaluate methods used in classifying exposure, both long-term, time-integrated and screening methods for assessing exposures to relatively short half-life contaminants.
