The objective of this study is to offer basic scientific data to support policy decision-making for theimproved control of suspended microorganism and to provide baseline data in order to improve the studiesof bioaerosol in Korea. Therefore, this study collected and re-analyzed articles on suspended microorganismin various indoor environments and atmospheric environment in Korea that were published in environmentaljournals since 1980. The survey on the bioaerosol concentration in hospital among the public facilities havebeen performed abundantly. Also, the survey on the distribution of microorganism during yellow sand, pollenand fungus in atmosphere have been performed mostly. The impactional sampling method that is thesampling method of suspended microorganism have been used mostly in the survey on bioaerosol in Korea.Among the various indoor environments, the pooled average total bacteria concentration of 222.75 CFU/㎥(95% CI:210.29 ∼ 245.22 CFU/㎥) was found in hospitals. It were lower than the guideline concentration(800 CFU/㎥) recommended by the Korean Ministry of Environment. And the pooled average concentration ofbacteria and fungi in houses was 148.06 CFU/㎥(95% CI : 20.39 ∼ 275.74 CFU/㎥) and 22.66 CFU/㎥(95% CI:0 ∼ 49.73 CFU/㎥) respectively. Staphylococcus spp., Micrococcus spp., Enterococcus., Corynebacterium.,Escherichia spp., and Pseudormonas spp. for bacteria and Penicillium spp., and Aspergillus spp. for fungiwere showed in various indoor environments.
