A study on the "Assessment of the Bavarian citizens' exposure to low frequency magnetic fields" conducted by BfS on behalf of the Bavarian State Ministry for Regional Development and Environmental Affairs (Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Landesentwicklung und Umweltfragen) from May 1996 to June 1997 suggests an arithmetic mean value of 0.101 microtesla and a median value of 0.047 microtesla for all individuals under study, based on 24h-measurements carried out using body worn dosimeters.
