GIS & Statistical Resources @ Yale

 

Help with statistics & GIS

Statistical Consultants work in a question-and-answer mode to help people with particular questions that come up in their research or classroom activities using statistical software, statistical methodologies, and geographic information systems. Consultants can offer advice about questions like these:

  • "How should I enter to my data?"
  • "What statistical program is best for my project?"
  • "How do I get the program to run the analysis I want?"
  • "Can you help me clean my data?"
  • "How can I create a map or other visual representation from my data?"

CSSSI StatLab consultant shifts in the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library

Consultants are generally available at library twice a week; in spring 2018, that time is usually afternoons on Tuesday and Wednesday. When consultants visit the Medical Library for drop-in meetings, they sit at the back of the library's Information Desk. 

Because shifts are sometimes canceled even at the last minute, always check here for the current CSSSI Statistical and GIS Consultants Schedule

Medical campus affiliates can also visit consultants at their main location (at CSSSI in Kline Biology Tower), call them at 203-432-3278, or reach out to the StatLab at stathelp@yale.edu.
