The objective of this study is to assess the indoor-to-outdoor particle concentration to calculate the daily children exposure levels in Lisbon. This information is useful in exposure studies with large population, because sampling indoor pollutants in all participants’ house is impractical. In the scope of the European Project LIFE Index-Air PM2.5-10 and PM10 samples were collected in parallel in the indoor and outdoor of 40 homes. The chemical composition of PM was assessed to calculate the exposure of children to PM components. Three different parameters were used to assess the relationship between indoor and outdoor particles and their chemical constituents: indoor/outdoor (I/O) ratio, infiltration factor and penetration factor.
