Reported symptom prevalence rates from comparison populations in community-based environmental studies.
National, regional, state, and county rates of mortality and morbidity are frequently used as reference values in epidemiologic studies.
However, baseline information on self-reported symptom rates is currently unavailable.
This information is potentially very useful as outcome measures in environmental and occupational epidemiologic studies in which symptoms may be the most sensitive measure of effects of low-level chemical exposure.
Comparison populations (n=934 adults) from three community-based studies were used to determine 1-y symptom prevalence rates.
