Abstract
The quantitative characterization of exposure factors is a critical point in human health risk assessment since those factors strongly control the numerical result of such assessment. As opposed to a deterministic approach, which makes use of single values for each input variable, probabilistic risk assessments consider random variables in the intake equations and thus allow to assess the influence of the variability of exposure factors on the risk uncertainty. The aim of this study is to develop a method to characterize the uncertainty introduced by the variability of each exposure factor when they are derived from (reliable) bibliographic sources.
