Abstract Risk assessment methodologies provide a mechanism for incorporating scientific evidence and judgments into the risk management decision process. A risk characterization framework has been developed to provide a systematic approach for analysis and presentation of risk characterization study results. The framework was used as a tool to review published studies that provide quantitative risk estimates associated with exposure to indoor air pollutants. Comparisons of both the methods and the resulting risk estimates are presented. Critical assumptions concerning risk estimates and exposure estimates for each study are recorded on the framework. Fourteen risk characterization studies were reviewed include three studies for radon, six for environmental tobacco smoke, three for volatile organics, one for formaldehyde only, and one for asbestos. The quality and rigor of analysis varied greatly among the studies reviewed. Some of the studies clearly state that they are intended to be preliminary analyses or screening studies, others are reported as sensitivity analyses, and others are detailed risk assessments. Studies which are technically rigorous in some risk components (e.g., dose-response relationships) are often less rigorous in other components (e.g. exposure assessment).
