Currently, many indoor air quality studies fail to adequately describe ventilation in the space or building being studied. In other cases, ventilation rates are provided with limited or no descriptions of how the measurements were made or no estimates of measurement uncertainty. These situations make it difficult to interpret indoor contaminant concentrations and to compare the results of different studies. This paper explains the importance of properly characterizing ventilation in IAQ studies and some important concepts for doing so.
