Team Mission

To provide metadata models and examples of analysis datasets used to generate the statistical results for a regulatory submission and other analysis needs.


The ADaM Team develops standards for the submission of analysis datasets that support the creation of statistical summaries for clinical trials. The Analysis Data Model (ADaM) assumes that analysis datasets are created primarily from source data compliant with the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM). The ADaM is described by three primary documents:  the Analysis Data Model (Model Document), its Implementation Guide (ADaMIG), and the Occurrence Data Structure (OCCDS) document. There are other supportive documents such as ADaM Basic Data Structure (BDS) for Time-to-Event (TTE) Analyses and Analysis Results Metadata (ARM)

Throughout the ADaM documents, it is acknowledged that clinical trials are unique, and that the design of analysis datasets is driven by the scientific and medical objectives of the study. Clear communication regarding the analyses which support these objectives is a foundational principle.

The ADaM team continues to support and enhance our documents, supports the data standardization needs from regulatory agencies and therapeutic-area focused initiatives.
