ESRAC members have experience in collecting time-use data via activity logs, survey, and video recording. These include time spent in various locations and activities as well as micro-level activities such as hand-surface contact and mouthing behaviors. Additionally, ESRAC members have analyzed and used time-use data from the National Human Activity Pattern Survey (NHAPS) and Multi-national Time Use Survey (MTUS) for exposure modeling. Additional research includes occupant behavior in the home and its impact on indoor concentrations of various contaminants.
