This document provides guidelines for designing programs to measure indoor air quality and associated factors. Brief summaries of past and current research and descriptions of indoor contaminants provide a background for developing the monitoring design. Factors that influence indoor air quality are discussed with the aid of mass balance models. An extensive review of measurement systems, including a listing of numerous instruments with their performance specifications, is presented. Design considerations are discussed for two types of studies--applied research in indoor air quality and investigations of building-associated problems. A systematic approach for developing the design is also described. In addition, the document presents a format for data reporting and suggestions on quality assurance and quality control.
