Analysis tool is for analysing assessment-specific analyses such as policy comparisons, value-of-information, sensitivity analyses and others. The scope of these analyses is assessment-specific, and it goes beyond a single variable. Basically, the analysis tool performs operations on the data in the result database, extracting and comparing results and answering questions based on these.


Analysis tool is statistical software that is able to do Bayesian inference and updating, among other things. It can compare result distributions of two or more variables, and calculate joint distributions and conditional distributions. The description of an analysis (including the actual computer code) is located in the scope/analyses attribute of the risk assessment product to which it belongs. The result of the analysis is stored in the result/results attribute
