Abstract Understanding exposure to environmental contaminants is an essential step in evaluating total health risk and developing effective environmental policies to reduce unacceptable risk. The difficulty with collecting exposure data is that it is burdensome for the respondent. Four variables are required to adequately characterize an exposure: location, time, activity, and a measure of the contaminant of interest. Participants in exposure studies are asked to provide data that includes lengthy activity or food diaries, biological and environmental samples, and answer short questionnaires repeatedly over a period of time. The burden of the multiple measures and the long-term commitment often results in diminishing levels of compliance and high attrition rates that reduce the validity of the data. Exposure researchers continually seek a methodology that will reduce the level of burden placed on respondents and thereby increase response rates. Traditional approaches to collecting exposure data include using paper diaries. As the technology was developed, respondents were outfitted with laptops and hand-held computers. The Web-enabled panel offers a viable data collection tool that may reduce the burden of collecting exposure data. This paper explores the potential of this methodology using preliminary data from three cohorts of the Study of Children and the Environment sponsored by the EPA.
