Statistical Consulting

Many scientific studies involve measurements or empirical data and require statistical analyses. The Institute for Mathematical Statistics and Actuarial Science (IMSV) offers support in these matters. This includes:

  • Support in the planning of experiments or studies.
  • Advice on available statistical methods to analyze your data.
  • Checking, monitoring and analysis of data.
  • Writing reports on the statistical analyses.

The type and intensity of cooperation between clients and the IMSV vary. In some cases only a short meeting is required and the clients do most of the statistics themselves. In other cases regular meetings with substantial input from the IMSV are necessary. It is always advisable to get into contact with the IMSV in an early stage of the study to clarify conceptual issues and avoid pitfalls.

We offer free short consulting sessions (at most one hour) on given dates. On the corresponding list you can register for such a consultation.

Moreover, we offer support for longer projects, data analyses, reports or advice on more specific statistical or mathematical questions. This service has to be paid for; for details and tariffs, please see the document below. If you are interested in this service, please send us your request via the online form. You could also get in touch personally with Dr. Michael Vock, Dr. Qiyu Li or Prof. Lutz Dümbgen.
