Please note: Annex 1 is a summary guide and compilation of data. It should not be used as a substitute for the original referenced article.
Annex 1 is a summary database which provides supporting, supplementary material to Table 1 in the "Executive Summary" of Arsenic Contamination in the World. This table summarizes exposed populations, current arsenic standards and sources of arsenic for each of the 105 identified countries, by continental region (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, Australia/Oceania) and by category (anthropogenic, coal, geogenic, mining, petroleum and volcanogenic). Annex 1 is organized alphabetically by continent. For each identified country, it includes the area affected, the population of that area, the types and levels of arsenic exposure, populations exposed and references that support these data.
