In order to handle uncertain information, this paper proposes evidential cognitive maps (ECMs), similar to the fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs). ECMs are uncertain-graph structures for representing causal reasoning through the combination of cognitive maps and Dempster Shafer evidence theory. The framework of ECMs is developed in detail and an application to socio-economic model is used to illustrate the application of the proposed methodology.
