Updated Tables, March 2018

This Updated Tables, March 2018, presents nationally representative and cumulative biomonitoring data gathered from 1999-2000 through 2015-2016. It also includes all the data from each previous National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals and each of the previous Updated Tables.  The Updated Tables are represented in two separate volumes: Volume One contains data tables for chemicals measured in the general U.S. population; Volume Two contains data tables for persistent organic pollutants and pesticides measured in pooled samples and adult cigarette smokers and nonsmokers. For additional details, see the Introduction section of the Updated Tables, Volume One, March 2018.

Note: In these Updated Tables, March 2018, several tables have been replaced to make formatting adjustments, and correct a conversion error in 2009-2010 data in a number of pooled tables displaying whole weight results (e.g., organochlorine pesticides and non-dioxin-like PCBs).

Note 2: As of September 4, 2018, Volume 2 of the Updated Tables, March 2018 has a revision for PCB 209. The current PDF now has data tables for all available NHANES cycles. In the previous PDF, lipid adjusted pooled data tables were incomplete.
