The Statistical Consulting Centre in the National Institute of Applied Statistics Research Australia and associated with the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics provides postgraduate students and staff members of the University of Wollongong with statistical consulting assistance for research. The service aims to improve the statistical content of research carried out by members of the University. Researchers from all disciplines may use the Centre. Priority is currently given to staff members and postgraduate students undertaking research for Doctor of Philosophy or Masters' degrees. The centre does not provide consulting support for honours students.
How we can help
It is important that University researchers consult the Centre at the beginning of their investigation, so that their research will include clear research hypotheses and well-designed data collection processes as these are basic to any analysis.
The assistance provided by the Statistical Consulting Centre includes advice on:
- the planning of surveys and experiments,
- the collection of data and their entry into a computer,
- statistical analyses, and
- the presentation of results.
Planning the data gathering process is crucial to research, and consulting with the Statistical Consulting Centre at this stage will reap the most reward.
The Statistical Consulting Centre can arrange for later data entry and statistical analyses for those who wish to pay for these services rather than do the work themselves.
Currently the Statistical Consulting Centre provides each University researcher with a free initial consultation. Up to ten hours per calendar year of consulting time maybe provided without charge if research funding is not available. When researchers require more consulting time, or receive external funding, a service charge is necessary.
