The MacOdrum Library provides a statistical consulting service to help students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty and other researchers in the Carleton University community with their questions regarding quantitative data. This includes questions about various statistical analysis procedures, as well as helping people decide the best means to complete their own projects or research. Our consultants are skilled in SPSS and Stata but also have some knowledge of Excel and SAS. Sessions are 1 hour in duration and appointments are recommended. Walk-ins are welcome.

  • SPSS help will be available most Wednesdays from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
