Abstract This final report describes results of studies EPA conducted on the exposure of high-risk subpopulations to particles. The overall goal of these studies was to relate personal exposure to outdoor concentrations of particles, particularly fine particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter (PM(sub 2.5)). The studies were carried out by EPA's National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL), and by two university consortia (Harvard University School of Public Health and the University of Washington Department of Environmental Studies). All studies included repeated measurements over 10-28 days of personal, indoor, and outdoor air PM(sub 2.5), including indoor and outdoor air PM(sub 10) and associated co-pollutants. Nearly 2500 personal PM(sub 2.5) filters and a much larger number of indoor and outdoor PM(sub 2.5) and PM(sub 10) filters were collected from more than 200 participants in 5 cities. All participants filled out identical household questionnaires and time-activity diaries providing information on where they spent their time and what particle sources were active. Participants were chosen from several high-risk subpopulations: adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), coronary heart disease (CHD), and hypertension, and children with asthma. Healthy cohorts were also included as controls. Some participants were in retirement homes but most lived in their own homes or apartments.
