This research project was initiated to identify potential human populations for future epidemiological studies of the health effects of radio frequency radiation. Through a literature search and contacts with various groups and organizations, numerous occupations and applications of radio frequency radiation (RFR) were identified and evaluated for their suitability for further study. Many populations were eliminated early because their potential exposure to RFR was too limited or data necessary for epidemiological research were unavailable. Eight populations were evaluated in detail and appear to satisfy many of the criteria for epidemiological research and could be useful study groups in an investigation of the health effects of non-ionizing radiation. The eight potential study populations are: RF heat sealer operators, HF (high frequency) tube welder operators, medical diathermy operators in Veterans Administration hospitals, medical diathermy operators in rehabilitation facilities, school children located near broadcasting towers, state policemen, security guards, and radar technicians.
