A dataset referred to by a child dataset as the dataset from which field values in the child dataset are to be inherited to the extent defined, i.e. parent datasets serve as basis of their associated child datasets. Only geographical inheritance is allowed in the ecoinvent version 3 database, i.e. some regional datasets (such as Brazilian soybean production) might be modelled as a child dataset of the global dataset. In child datasets values can be set to relate to the corresponding value in the parent dataset. When such a related value is changed in the parent dataset it is automatically changed in the child dataset as well.
