This report is intended to characterize the quality of the indoor environment--primarily with respect to airborne pollutants, although others are discussed--and to determine the potential adverse health effects of indoor pollutants. The charge was to review, compile, and appraise the available knowledge. The Committee has also identified the research needed for abatement of indoor pollution. 'Indoor' refers to the environments in homes, schools, public buildings, and similar spaces to which the public has access; industrial working environments, however, are excluded from consideration here.
