    • Description:
      This white paper was prepared by members of the Radon Task Force of the Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (EPHTP) to investigate the merits (opportunity, cost and value) of developing public health indicators associated with residential exposure to naturally occurring radon gas. The current status of radon monitoring and data collection in the U.S. and the suitability of these data for inclusion in the EPHTN are described. Significant challenges in using the current data and improving the quality and quantity of available radon data are also addressed. Recommendations are provided to resolve issues prior to use of the data. This white paper was intended for use by members of the EPHT Radon Task Force and the greater EPHTP. The Radon Task Force was established during 2010 to explore existing datasets on radon and the feasibility of using those data for the CDC/NCEH Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (EPHTP). Environmental public health tracking is the ongoing collection, integration, analysis, and interpretation of data about environmental hazards, exposure to environmental hazards, and health effects potentially related to exposure to environmental hazards. The tracking program has been successful in developing a nationwide environmental public health tracking network (EPHTN) and in developing capacity in environmental health within state and local health departments.
