Dietary Exposure Evaluation Model (DEEM) Errata List (March 19, 2013, Updated September 30, 2014)

DEEM-FCID is a dietary exposure model that is used to estimate exposure to pesticides in foods in the diets of the U.S. population. The software was developed by Durango Software, LLC and is based on food consumption data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), What We Eat in America (WWEIA). DEEM-FCID Version 4.02 is based on more recent food consumption data (2005-2010) than Version 3.18 (2003-2008). Version 4.02 also uses commodity codes for two groups (Tropical Fruits with edible peel, and Tropical Fruits without edible peel) that have not been published in the Federal Register as of this release date.
