Do you need help getting started with statistical software, basic analysis, or visualization?
Contact our Libraries' team at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by during our drop in help:

We can help with data cleaning, preparation, descriptive statistics, and visualization in a variety of statistical software. However, we do not make decisions about how you should analyze your data. Please be prepared with data, prior analyses, and any other relevant material when dropping in.
Need more advanced help with study design, methodology, or programming?
