Preparing To Meet With The Consultant

 prepare

The Statistical Consultant can give you the best assistance the earlier in your research process you contact him.  It is best to make an appointment to discuss your research project in the formative stages and before you have a problem.  However, you can contact the Statistical Consultant at any time during your research.

Things to think about before meeting the Consultant:

  • What are you trying to explain or predict, i.e., what is your dependent variable?
  • How was your data collected?
  • What kind of data are you working with, e.g., cross-sectional, longitudinal, multilevel, survey data, etc. ?
  • How are your variables of interest measured? Are they continuous, ordinal, nominal?
  • What are your hypotheses concerning the dependent variable?
