This report has been prepared in response to a request by the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Science and Technology. The Committee requested that the Administrator of EPA: '...immediately (within 90 days) prepare and submit to the Committee a comprehensive and substantial report on the status of the analysis of CHESS data and on any results obtained with particular emphasis on methods used to assure the soundness of any results. The report should also describe any pressure the Agency has received to force them to publish or not publish any CHESS results.' From 1969 to 1975 EPA conducted a series of epidemiologic studies on the health effects of air pollution. These studies, together known as the Community Health and Environmental Surveillance System (CHESS) studies, were performed in several cities across the United States.
