Statistical Analysis Research Committee

Welcome to the Statistical Analysis Committee!

The committee’s initial members — Pete Palmer, Bill James, and Dick Cramer — began it in 1975 to encourage the exchange of research and analysis. A focus for the committee is the study of various empirical evaluations in use and in development. The committee provides a major communications link for researchers in the field.
