22 rows The latest edition of the Exposure Factors Handbook was released inbut since OctoberEPA has begun to release chapter updates individually. This new process allows risk assessors to get the latest information as new data becomes available.
To make it easier to find these chapter updates, the chapter date column has been added to Table 1. The goal of the Child-Specific Exposure Factors Handbook is to fulfill this need.
The document provides a summary of the available and up-to-date statistical data on various factors assessing children exposures.
These factors include drinking water consumption, soil ingestion, inhalation.
