The Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences (CRAES) has conducted the Environmental exposure related activity pattern research of Chinese population (Adults). Exposure Factors Handbook of Chinese Population (Adults) was compiled based on the results from this study.

Highlights of the Chinese Exposure Factors Handbook is a brief introduction to the content of Exposure Factors Handbook of Chinese Population (Adults). In each chapter, definitions, possible influence factors, and survey methods have been introduced, followed by recommended values for urban/rural areas, different genders, age groups and regions with information of mean, median and P5, P25, P75, P95 values.

With the abundant data and tables, readers are provided with an accessible and comprehensive overview of Chinese exposure factors.

Key Features

  • The first and only one covering Chinese exposure factors, which have been absent until now and are essential for the exposure and risk assessment of environmental agents
  • Presents several tables on ingestion rates, as well as activity biology and residential factors based on data from a national survey
  • Provides a brief but comprehensive understanding of the environmental exposure-related factors for the Chinese population


Risk assessors, scientists in environmental sciences, public health, environmental toxicology and environmental hygiene
