Title Application of industrial hygiene air sampling data to the evaluation of controls for air contaminants
Bibliographic information Nov. 1984, Vol.45, No.11, p.773-777.
Abstract Air contaminant concentration measurements can be an important tool in the evaluation of the effectiveness of ventilation systems. Comparisons of concentrations before and after implementation of control measures can be stated as a null hypothesis; statistical tests (Student t-test, analysis of variance, or Duncan's multiple range test) can then be used to verify the validity of the null hypothesis and thus quantify statistically the effectiveness of the control measures.
