It is often desirable to represent in a database, entities whose properties cannot be deterministically classified. The authors develop a data model that includes probabilities associated with the values of the attributes. The notion of missing probabilities is introduced for partially specified probability distributions. This model offers a richer descriptive language allowing the database to more accurately reflect the uncertain real world. Probabilistic analogs to the basic relational operators are defined and their correctness is studied. A set of operators that have no counterpart in conventional relational systems is presented
