The EPAs Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) has developed this quantitative health risk assessment (RA) describing the quantitative assessments of PM-related risks to public health to support the review of the primary PM standards. This document is a concise presentation of the scope, methods, key results, observations, and related uncertainties associated with the quantitative analyses performed. The RA builds upon the health effects evidence presented and assessed in the ISA, as well as CASAC advice (Samet, 2009a, b; Samet, 2010) and public comments on a scope and methods planning document for the RA (here after, Scope and Methods Plan, US EPA, 2009b) and on the first and second draft RA documents (US EPA, 2009e; US EPA, 2010a).
