I. Information About the Project/Document
The Highlights of the Exposure Factors Handbook was developed to provide a brief overview of the content of the Exposure Factors Handbook: 2011 Edition and to facilitate access to its exposure factors recommendations. As such, it contains a subset of the information provided in the Handbook. Excerpts of each chapter of the Handbook and summaries of key recommendations are provided. This Highlights document is intended for use by exposure assessors, within the Agency as well as those outside, as a reference tool and source of summary information of exposure factors information. It may be used by scientists, economists, and other interested parties as a source of data and/or U.S. EPA recommendations on numeric estimates for behavioral and physiological characteristics needed to estimate exposure to environmental agents.
