Abstract
Several studies were carried out on health and annoyance reactions to community odor from pulp mills and other industrial sources. Questionnaires were used to collect information from respondents on exposure to the odor and on health and annoyance reactions. The health reaction section of the questionnaire included a symptom check-list and the basic questions from the British Medical Research Council's (MRC) questionnaire on respiratory symptoms. Exposure to odor was also measured by dynamic olfactometry. In general, the frequency with which odor was noticed and the frequency and intensity with which respondents were bothered by the odor are correlated with odor intensity and frequency as measured by dynamic olfactometry within each community. It should, therefore, be possible to formulate a quantitative relationship between measurements of exposure to community odors and measurements of community reactions. Further refinement in methods and a larger number of observations representing a broader span of exposures are necessary to accomplish this.
