Statistical Consulting for Students

Since October 2011, the Centre for Statistics offers a statistical consulting service for students of the University of Göttingen working on their Bachelor or Master thesis or a seminar paper. The service comprises the choice of an appropriate statistical model and analysis tools for a data set at hand (e.g. generalized linear models, survival analysis, mixed models, nonparametric regression etc.), general questions concerning different kinds of data (e.g. cross-sectional data vs. panel data vs. time series data) as well as the choice of an appropriate estimation method (e.g. likelihood vs. bayesian). Furthermore, the consulting service includes the support in implementing the data analysis in established software packages (Excel, R, Stata, SPSS etc.), as well as interpretation and presentation of the obtained results.
