Statistics Task Group

The FSSB’s Statistics Task Group is primarily comprised of at least one member from each OSAC subcommittee to provide a statistician’s perspective for the subcommittee. Task group members are selected based on their experience applying statistics in the physical sciences or other types of experimental science. In most cases, if not all, the person’s primary professional role is as a statistical expert in an academic, government, or industrial setting. The group is available for consulting with the FSSB and all OSAC committees on statistics related issues. Task group members work together to gather and submit their comments on standards, technical publications, definitions, and other OSAC and FSSB documents, with an emphasis on their statistical issues related to forensic science results.
