Looking for help with statistics?

What do we offer?

Western Data Science Solutions (formerly the Data Analytics Help Service) offers statistical consulting and workshops on software and data analysis. These services are brought to you by the Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences in cooperation with Western Libraries and with generous support from Western University through targeted funding to the Faculty of Science.

The service occasionally offers short courses in R: see http://www.stats.uwo.ca/modules/piCal/?cid=00010 for scheduled courses.

Researchers seeking more extensive statistical consulting services, or customized workshops for students, faculty or staff can contact Dr. Vera Tai (vtai4@uwo.ca) to inquire about arrangements such as fee-for-service projects or collaborative research with faculty and/or graduate students in the Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences.

Where are we located?

Through the summer, these services will be either offered in the Map and Data Centre (Collaborative Technology Room 17A on the ground floor of the D.B. Weldon Library), or by arrangement in the Western Sciences Centre. Specific location arrangements will be made on an individual appointment basis.

What are our hours?

Consulting for the spring 2017 term is now completed.

For the summer 2017 term (May to August), service will be offered on an as-needed basis by making an appointment as below. Consequently, the consultants will be unavailable to accomodate drop-in sessions.
