The NIHR Statistics Group was formed to support statisticians to share expertise, facilitate communication and collaboration. The Group also aims to provide opportunities for career development.

As part of NIHR SSCR’s core activities and capacity-building programme, a subgroup of the NIHR Statistics Group has been established focused on statistical methods for adult social care research.

The Group is coordinated by Dr Bo Hu and Amritpal Rehill from the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre at LSE.
