Abstract

OBJECTIVES: When potentially hazardous agents have multiple environmental sources, failure to include all exposure sources can constitute a type of measurement error. In addition, the effects of exposure from one source can also be confounded by exposure to other sources of the same agent. In this study clarification of these concepts is sought, and the direction and magnitude of the resulting bias in epidemiologic measures of association are examined.
