Subject background

Recent questionnaire studies in office-like environments during the last decades have continued to show a high prevalence of symptoms, world-wide. Surprisingly, the reporting prevalence has not decreased, despite the continuous development of lower emitting construction and consumer products and new ventilation strategies. New concerns have emerged about the influence on work performance and learning capacity.
