Statistical Consulting

What We Do

Statistical consulting is free to all members of the UMD research community (undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff), in all departments and disciplines. Research is increasingly data-driven, and we are available to answer your statistics and analysis questions through email or an in-person consultation. We currently specialize in SASSPSSR, and can also provide support on Survey Design and Analysis. We may also refer you to a software specialist as needed. Our mission statement contains information on the overarching goals of our services.
