Welcome to the Statistical Consulting Center. My office is located at 115 Howe Library.
Statistical Software Support and Consulting Services are available to students, postdocs, and researchers at UVM. I provide help with statistical methodologies, data analysis, experimental design, and the use of statistical software.
|Location:||Howe Library, Room 115|
Assistance is available at all stages of your research. You are encouraged to contact a consultant at the beginning of your study for help with data collection, experimental design, and sample size calculations. First consultations typically last from 30 minutes to one hour. Follow-up consultations are usually necessary.
These services are provided free to UVM students, faculty, and staff who are not otherwise covered by grant funding for statistical support. Services include guidance on and discussion of the best statistical approach as well as help with trouble shooting and interpretation. For researchers seeking complete analyses by a statistician, please contact the Biomedical Statistics Research Core.
Assistance is provided in these areas (among others):
- Data management (formatting, coding, screening)
- Experimental design
- Survey design
- Selection of appropriate statistical methodology
- Help with power and sample size calculations
- Interpretation of results of analyses
- Assistance in responding to reviewers' comments
- Installation/licensing of statistical software packages
- Programming assistance
I encourage you to drop by at the early stage of your research.
Before meeting with me, please look at the Process Guidelines for Statistical Research Analysis.
