The committee then synthesized the body of evidence of each type (epidemiologic or mechanistic) and assigned a “weightof-evidence” for each. These weights-of-evidence represent the committee’s assessment of the quality and quantity of evidence. The two weight-ofevidence assessments contributed to the third assessment, a conclusion about the causal relationship. , the width of the 95% confidence interval around an effect estimate, reflecting the statistical power to detect a significantly increased risk of an adverse event).
