The CMS Higgs combination tool is the software package used for statistical analyses by the CMS Collaboration. The package, originally designed to perform searches for a Higgs boson and the combined analysis of those searches, has evolved to become the statistical analysis tool presently used in the majority of measurements and searches performed by the CMS Collaboration. Since Combine has access to the full likelihood function, it can also be used to perform a likelihood-based unfolding. This approach has become the standard unfolding procedure for many analyses within the collaboration.
