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 Stata, SPSS, SAS and R, and also have some knowledge of Excel.

Note: if you are having Technical issues, please contact ITS. They have a JIRA Service Desk Customer Portal that allows you to chat in real time and/or submit a request. Our Stats Consultants do NOT help with technical issues.
