  1. Role of exposure databases in epidemiology.

    Article - En anglais

    At present, exposure databases record data primarily for regulatory purposes; they have not focused on serving the needs of epidemiologists or public health.

    However, the modification of exposure databases could facilitate their use in epidemiology.

    Characteristics necessary to enhance the use of all databases include easy access by users; documentation of methods, sampling bias, error, and inconsistences; widespread coverage in time and space; and methods and measures for estimating exposure of individuals as well as populations.
