The document describes the basic principles and assumptions associated with a qualitative and quantitative carcinogenic risk assessment and illustrates these features using several examples of quantitative risk assessment done by State and local agencies. The report is intended to help readers better understand and interpret a risk assessment rather than to provide instructions that would enable them to conduct a risk assessment. The report is aimed at managers and staff members in State and local agencies who are concerned with the use of qualitative and quantitative carcinogenic risk assessment for evaluating emissions of toxic air pollutants. The report discusses the four steps of risk assessment: hazard identification, dose-response assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterization, focusing primarily on the dose-response assessment.
