## Expression of Interest for MRC-NIHR TMRP Statistical Analysis Working Group |

**Background:**This survey is for people to express an interest in becoming a member of the MRC-NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership Statistical Analysis Working Group (SAWG). We will use responses to create a mailing list and invite people to attend annual meetings.

The remit of the SAWG can be found here: Statistical Analysis Working Group remit

**SAWG Leads:**Dr Tim Morris and Prof Richard Emsley.

**Aim of the SAWG:**To improve methods for primary and secondary analysis of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) through collaborative methodological research and dissemination.

**Objective of the SAWG:**To facilitate collaboration among individuals working on similar topics relating to statistical analysis of randomised trials, with the aim of adding value to each other’s work, strengthening links between groups and identifying new areas for research.

The SAWG will support work on statistical analysis methods that could be written into a trial’s statistical analysis plan (rather general methods that might be applied to secondary trial data).

**Membership:**Members can include any individuals working on developing and applying methods for statistical analysis and those with an interest in using these methods; for example, trial statisticians with specific statistical problems who lack the time to work on them.
