Statistical and Analytical Consulting and Courses

Statistical and statistical software consulting services provided through the UW Seattle campus are available to UW Tacoma faculty . Three primary sources are available:

  • UW Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences (CSSS)

CSSS provides free statistical consulting for faculty engaged in social science research. Consultants offer assistance at all stages of a project, including the study design process. Appointments are available during specified office hours.
Visit the CSSS website here to schedule an appointment and learn more about their services.

  • UW Center for Social Science Computation and Research (CSSCR)

CSSCR offers free consulting assistance with statistical and qualitative software packages including R, STATA, SPSS, and Atlas.ti. Consulting is offered on a drop-in basis on the UW Seattle campus and may also be arranged over the phone. CSSCR recommends that faculty call ahead before dropping in. Note that the service consultants only on use of analytical software, not on research design.
More information is available here.

The CSSCR also offers free quarterly courses introducing statistical software - for example, Introduction to R using R Studio,  Introduction to Atlas.ti, and Introduction to GIS. Courses are listed here.

  • UW Departments of Biostatistics and Statistics

These departments offer free statistical consulting associated with designing analytical approaches for proposed research, choosing statistical methods, and visualizing and presenting data visualization. Free 50-minute consulting sessions are available when classes are in session. Additional session may incur a fee.
More information about these services and instructions for scheduling an appointment is available here.

  • UW Institute of Translation Health Sciences (ITHS)

The ITHS provides fee-based biostatistical consulting for non-ITHS researchers, offering more in-depth collaborative consultation than is possible through other free consulting services. 
More information about these services can be found here.
