Notice of availability.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the availability of the final document titled, Child-Specific Exposure Factors Handbook (EPA/600/P-00/002B, September 2002). The document was prepared by the Office of Research and Development's National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA). The goal of the Child-Specific Exposure Factors Handbook is to consolidate all children's exposure factors data into one document. The document provides a summary of the available and up-to-date statistical data on various factors assessing children's exposures. These factors include drinking water consumption; soil ingestion; inhalation rates; dermal factors including skin area and soil adherence factors; consumption of fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, dairy products, homegrown foods, and breast milk; activity patterns; body weight; consumer products, and life expectancy.
The document is available electronically through the NCEA Web site (www.epa.gov/ncea). A limited number of paper copies will be available from the EPA's National Service Center for Environmental Publications (NSCEP), P.O.
