Statistical and Research Consulting

Our research design staff work with faculty, staff, and students on their individual or funded research projects, as well as with graduate students on their master’s theses, dissertations, or other research projects.

Consultation is provided in the following areas:


• Research design
• Instrumentation / survey construction
• Techniques of data collection and entry
• Statistical analysis and interpretation


Our staff can also provide assistance with the data analysis and statistical software SPSS and SAS. In addition to data analysis assistance, we can assist with the design of surveys or questionnaires, especially those for which responses will be coded on optical scanning sheets. We can also help develop a data coding scheme (codebook).
