The Statistical Consulting Studio provides support to CEHS faculty and graduate student in the form of individualized appointments, small group training, and methodological workshops.

Guidance is available for identifying appropriate quantitative analysis, implementation of statistical tests, interpretation of results, and generating graphical displays. A wide range of software is supported, including SPSS, R, G*Power, and Mplus. Consultants may also review methods and results sections of publications and grants.
