Statistical Support

For more information about the StatLab and GIS, please see our page at the CSSSI website.


StatLab staff includes GIS and Statistical specialists as well as data management experts. We also have Statistical and GIS Consultants work in a question-and-answer mode to help people with particular questions that come up in their research or classroom activities using statistical software and statistical methodologies. Consultants can offer advice ranging from:

  • How should I enter to my data? to
  • What statistical program is best for my project? to
  • How do I get the program to run the analysis I want?

The consultants cannot provide long tutorial sessions. The consultants can help describe and explain methods and procedures, but they cannot prescribe particular methodologies or interpret results of analyses.

If your needs go beyond this scope, we suggest you contact your faculty advisor or TA about further instruction and participate in course work and/or workshops that will increase your expertise in the area of concern. The StatLab offers workshops on the major statistical packages throughout the year.

Consultants specialize in particular academic fields of study and in particular software packages. Knowing in advance the best match for your particular questions is possible by reviewing their areas of expertise. However, each consultant has extensive expertise in statistical computing and software support and can help you get started in all the basic packages supported by the StatLab. Give us a call at 203-432-3277, Monday through Friday, for further information about our consultation services.
