Four major sources of uncertainty typically encountered in the analysis of operational data are: randomness of the events; variation between data sources; uncertainty in counting or classifying the events; and uncertainty in modelling the process. This note outlines a Bayesian method for dealing with the third source, and describes two studies in which the approach was used with data from United States nuclear power plants.
