These are some of the functions we offer:
The assistance we have provided has ranged across general data analysis (from small data packets to processing large and complex data sets), statistical modelling (particularly in a medical context), survey development from design and sampling, through application and analysis to final report, time series, simulation studies, longitudinal data analysis, survival models and randomisation tests.
These are many and varied in nature but generally follow a pattern along the lines listed here; we can assist in any or all of the components.
Clarification of objectives, study design and planning including power definition, data acquisition, data exploration, questionnaire design, sample size calculations, data collection and statistical analysis, reporting of and interpretation of results as well as documentation, illustration by appropriate visualisations and final report-writing (sectional or total).
This is an investigation of the possible relationships between variables (the behaviour of response variables being matched to associated variation in explanatory variables together with an associated, but measurable, level of uncertainty) to be found in your data.
Many Masters and PhD projects have a section that is data rich. Analysing this data effectively is crucial for the validity of the study. We can help by providing advice on the quantitative elements of the work from the best methods of collection of data through to the most appropriate statistical analyses that should be performed; this is required so that valid inferences may be drawn and to establish the credibility of the study.
We have, as a group, authored books and presented numerous papers at International Conferences; we have also published a large number of refereed articles in Journals in subjects ranging across a wide range of disciplines including, for example, Econometrics, Quantitative Economics, Applied Economics, Neurology, Experimental Brain Research, Clinical Rehabilitation, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry, Multiple Sclerosis, Experimental Brain Research, Clinical Rehabilitation, Therapy and Rehabilitation, Statistics and Computing, Environment and Planning, International Education and Economics of Education Review
We have wide experience of training in the theory and practice of statistics and data handling. This ranges from undergraduate through postgraduate to training PhD students in research methods. We also have experience in running bespoke short courses for companies, including multinationals. We offer flexibility, clarity and professionalism in making the subject clear and usable to those for whom statistics is not a central part of their life but a tool to be used in their work.
