NIOSH, in studies of over 1,000 IAQ episodes, categorized the major sources or factors as follows: (estimates are rounded to nearest 10%)

50% related to deficiencies in the ventilation of the building, (e.g., lack of outside air, poor air distribution, uncomfortable temperatures and humidities and sources of contaminants in the system.)

30% related to some indoor air contaminant (e.g., formaldehyde, solvent vapors, dusts, and microbiological agents.)

10% could be attributed to an outdoor source (motor vehicle exhaust, pollen, fungi, smoke, construction dusts.)

10% had no observable cause.

Of the indoor sources, about 5% were related to suspected microbial contamination, and about 5% were attributed to furnishings and fabrics.

NIOSH, in its studies of IAQ problems, could not identify any sources or causes in about 10% of the cases it investigated. When mass psychogenic illness was suspected, the following characteristics were often present:

  • Gender-specific complaint rates.
  • Complaints appear to have influenced others to "discover" similar complaints.
  • Labor/management problems existed.
  • Persistence of complaints following removal of supposed causes.
  • Socially powerful people became effected.
  • Nonspecific symptoms or complaints.
  • Boring and repetitive work.
  • Excessive work loads.
  • Rigid management structures.
  • The feeling of "lack of control."
  • Poor work environment.
