This document describes the statistical analyses of bulk sample data taken from school buildings in two locations: New York City and Maryland. The bulk samples were analyzed for asbestos by various laboratories and the results given to the Research Triangle Institute for analysis. In particular, Section I of this report describes the analysis of the New York City data which reported the presence or absence of asbestos (Amosite or Chrysotile) in 474 bulk samples taken from various types of building material in New York City schools. Section II describes the analysis of the Maryland data which contains analysis of 37 split-asbestos bulk samples taken from Maryland public schools. The split-samples in Maryland were sent to two or more laboratories which determined presence or absence of asbestos (Amphibole and Chrysotile) as well as actual levels of asbestos found.
