At the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland a collaboration of 15 institutions is measuring the nEDM using ultracold neutrons (UCN). In recent years a total of nearly 55000 cycles each with an average of approximately 11500 UCN were recorded. The pre-analysis sensitivity of the dataset is about 0.95×10E-26 ecm. This talk will present the summary of the ongoing statistical analysis by combining results from two analysis groups, both working on independently blinded data.
