About the event:

The meeting follows up the Social Statistics Section meeting in 2015 which identified the need to power trials to understand their impact on disadvantaged groups. It is also linked to the afternoon meeting reviewing the experience of 100 years of trials in education (separate registration required). This event will be of a more technical nature, aimed at researchers interested in education trial development, and in understanding social inequalities in policy experiments.
