SAINT PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2015) - EDRM, the leading standards organization for the e-discovery market, announced today the release of an updated Statistical Sampling Applied to Electronic Discovery. The release, published on the EDRM website, reflects public feedback from the comment period that concluded on January 9, 2015.

EDRM's Statistical Sampling Materials provide guidance regarding the use of statistical sampling in e-discovery. Much of the information is definitional and conceptual and intended for a broad audience. Other materials (including an accompanying spreadsheet) provide additional information, particularly technical information, for e-discovery practitioners who are responsible for developing further expertise in this area.

Release 2 of Statistical Sampling Applied to Electronic Discovery was developed by a team of dedicated EDRM members. That team includes:

The EDRM community thanks these members for their active participation in this important initiative. The new statistical sampling content is an enhancement of materials that were originally developed and posted on the EDRM website in 2012.
