Our statistics consultants are experts in a wide range of topics. Our goal is to match you with a statistics consultant who can help you with your data gathering, management, analysis, reporting, and presenting. Specialties include psychometrics, biostatistics, statistical power analysis to estimate your optimal sample size, qualitative and quantitative analysis to arrive at better operational definitions of your study variables and improve procedures to increase the internal and/or external validity of your study, mixed methods studies, research methodology, non-parametric statistics, structural equation modeling, and statistical software tutoring (e.g., SPSS, SAS, STATA, AMOS).

Our statistics consultants help clinical and social science researchers develop research questions, design methods, analyze and interpret collected data, prepare tables and graphs, develop oral and written presentations, write and review research grant proposals, and address the comments of reviewers and editors.

Statistics Services for Graduate Students:

 

We will help you formulate your hypotheses, identify your dependent and independent variables, and develop a full data analytic plan to test those hypotheses. We can assist you in designing a survey that answers your research questions and can help create a suitable online survey via Survey Monkey or set up a template to enter data directly into Excel or SPSS. We can run statistical analyses for you, including helping you determine a justifiable sample size utilizing power analysis, and can provide you with APA formatted tables and graphs. We will help you interpret the results of your statistical analyses and can assist you in formulating conclusions based on your findings.

We can also help you with your methods chapter and IRB forms, providing statistical writing oversight, editing, and verifying the accuracy of your technical writing, including the use of italics and proper spacing: t(38) = 3.98, p = .032. We will help you understand and respond to your committee’s comments and questions, and make sure that you feel confident about your results in preparation for your final orals.

Graduate students who work with us find that they are done with their projects sooner, which saves them time, tuition costs, hassle, and sanity. After consulting with us, our clients are better prepared and more confident when they meet with their advisors and committee members, and their committees have them make fewer revisions. Our clients more clearly understand their findings so they are able to write better conclusions and recommendations for future research. Ultimately, they are more confident when presenting their studies at their final oral examinations.
