Statistical Consulting Services

Types of Services Provided by SCS

Short-Term Statistical Analyses

For students, researchers and faculty at NIU, we provide advice and assistance with short-term statistical analyses. This includes help with designing experiments, clinical trials, observational studies and surveys, as well as analyzing data and interpreting the results. You are especially encouraged to contact us early in your research, preferably at the design stage. The time normally required to complete a project may vary from a few hours to several weeks.

Long-Term Collaborative Research

We seek to promote cross-disciplinary interaction and collaborative research between the faculty and students in Statistics and their counterparts in other disciplines. If you are working on a project that is suitable for collaborative research, please contact the director of the SCS at statconsult[at]

Assistance in Preparation of Research Grant Proposals

We invite researchers working on grant proposals to include statistical consulting and data-analyses as an item in their research plans and their budgets. The director of the SCS is available for help in preparing budget estimates and for advice in preparing statistical sections of research proposals.
