N1 - Funding Information: INTRODUCTION In recent years, much attention has been given to housedust as a potential source of lead uptake by small children. Little agreement exists, however, on the relative importance of different types of housedust, and as to how housedust actually gets polluted with lead or other elements with a predominantly outdoor origin. Samples have been taken of floordust, with a special vacuum cleaner (Solomon and Hartford, 1976) or with the vacuum cleaner present in the house (Yankel er al., 1977), of lead deposition indoors (Day et al., 1977), of indoor air (Johnson et al., 1978), of lead deposited on windowsills, etc. (Sayre et al., 1974). Seldom have several types of housedust been sampled at the same time (the epidemiologic study described in Johnson et al., 1978, is an exception). Also, the interrelationships between several types of housedust and the relative availability of the different types of housedust for uptake by small children have never been investigated in detail. Studies of indoor/outdoor relationships do exist, but most of them consider only gases or suspended particulate matter in air (cf. Alzona et (~1.. 1976; Sterling and Kobayashi, 1977). In the city of Arnhem, located in the eastern part of the Netherlands, an epidemiological study was carried out in 1978 to determine the major environmental pathways of lead uptake by small children living in the vicinity of a secondary lead smelter. Part of the study consisted of an extensive investigation of the lead pollution of several types of housedust. Also, a number of outdoor parameters was determined, allowing a detailed indoor/outdoor comparison. The epidemiological results are presented in part I of this study (Brunekreef et ~1.. 1981). In this paper, attention will focus on the methods and results of the housedust investigation, and on the indoor/outdoor relationships. Over 100 houses were investigated, situated in the nearest residential area, at distances of 450-1000 m north of the 1 Supported in part by a grant from the Municipal Council in Arnhem.
