East A, Isaacs K, Vallero D. Application of the Residential Population Generator (RPGen) in prediction of exposure outcomes for owners and renters from consumer products using the Combined Human Exposure Model (CHEM). Symposium presented at International Society of Exposure Science Annual Meeting, virtual conference, September 2021, DOI: 10.23645/epacomptox.16632319, open access online.


The Residential Population Generator (RPGen) is the first of three modules in the Combined Human Exposure Model (CHEM), which estimates exposure from consumer products. RPGen creates a database of modeled individuals is created by linking data from US census and US housing surveys with physiological characteristics from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data. Characteristics of the generated household and individual influence exposures in CHEM, and this is demonstrated with a case example across 5 chemicals informed by renting or owning a household.
