Collecting data is easy — it’s finding the patterns in the data and understanding what they mean that can be hard. To help you sift through your data and make sense of it, the Library’s StatLab offers consultation, collaboration, and support for data science, applied statistics, and scientific computing.
- Assist with study design and statistical planning for grant proposals.
- Help with data visualization and presentation.
- Consult on statistical methods.
- Aid in interpretation of statistical analysis.
- … and more!
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned data wrangler, StatLab will help you identify relevant questions, collect data from a multitude of different data sources, organize the information, translate results into solutions, and communicate findings. You will understand what clean data looks like and how to shape raw data into usable forms.
StatLab also publishes short articles and tutorials on various statistical topics to provide clear and accessible explanations. You can browse articles and tutorials by the available software (R, Stata, and Python), by topic (data wrangling, statistical methods, visualization, text analysis), or by viewing a list of all StatLab articles. Or you can simply drop by the office for free help with study design, statistics, data wrangling, or visualization. To set up an appointment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, watch the Library calendar for workshops in the spring semester!
