Appropriate planning, execution, and reporting of statistical methods and results is critical for research transparency, validity, and reproducibility. This paper provides an overview of best practices for developing a statistical analysis plan a priori, conducting statistical analyses, and reporting statistical methods and results for human nutrition randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Readers are referred to the other NURISH (NUtrition inteRventIon reSearcH) publications for detailed information about the preparation and conduct of human nutrition RCTs. Collectively, the NURISH series outlines best practices for conducting human nutrition research.
