Dataset includes structure and values of a causal model for Training Quality in nuclear power plants. Each entry refers to a piece of evidence supporting causality of the Training Quality causal model. Includes bibliographic information, context-specific text from the reference, and three weighted values; (M1) credibility of reference, (2) causality determined by the author, and (3) analysts confidence level.

(M1, M2, and M3) Weight metadata are based on probability language from <a href="" style="text-decoration: none" >Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Climate Change 2001: Synthesis Report</a>. The language can be found in the “Summary for Policymakers” section, in the PDF format.

Weight Metadata:

0.99, 1, Virtually Certain
0.9, 0.99, Very Likely
0.66, 0.9, Likely
0.33, 0.66, Medium Likelihood
