The purpose of the guidelines is to establish a consistent, systematic methodology for handling the wide variety of occupational exposure data used in developing assessments of occupational exposure in support of risk assessments. It provides guidance in the collection, classification of occupational exposure data, use of analysis of variance (ANOVA) procedures for grouping broad ranges of job groups with similar exposures, calculation of basic descriptive statistics (where appropriate), and treatment of uncertainties, assumptions and biases in the data. Emphasis is placed on meeting the needs of individuals who will use the occupational exposure assessment as well as appropriately characterizing the data (e.g. uncertainties, assumptions and biases). A worked example is presented in the guidelines to demonstrate use of the procedures for the example data set.
