Statistical Consulting Service at NCSU

Laboratory for Collaboration and Statistical Innovation

The Laboratory for Collaboration and Statistical Innovation (L-CSI) is a business unit within the Department of Statistics at North Carolina State University. The L-CSI is a platform for statistics faculty, staff, and students to collaborate with investigators on and off the NC State campus. Find out more about L-CSI.

The consulting faculty assisted by the statistical computing support group of the Department of Statistics serve as a national model for the delivery of statistical consulting services to campus researchers from the agricultural and life sciences. This effectiveness is reflected in the high efficiency and validity of the experiments undertaken by researchers at NCSU and in the quality of the publications resulting from their research. Consulting encounters frequently lead to productive collaborative research relationships and produce new avenues for theoretical research in statistics. Through an arrangement with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), support is provided to the NC Agricultural Research Service (NC ARS) research enterprise through designated faculty liaisons.

We provide consulting to the Clinical Studies Core at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine for Veterinary Clinical Trials.

Other NCSU faculty, staff and students may request assistance through the Statistical Consulting Seminar (ST641), Statistics Computing Support group, or may hire one of our graduate students.

Activities of the Statistical Consulting Service:

  • Provide advice to researchers on a full range of topics including choice of experiment design, management of data, statistical procedures for analyzing experiments, interpretion of the results, statistical and biomathematical modeling, and statistical computing.
  • Faculty serve as members of graduate committees.
  • Provide the training in statistics and computing necessary to take advantage of these services, and to carry out research and publish the results. Courses in applied statistics and SAS.
  • Statistics faculty members engage in collaborative research efforts with faculty from other CALS departments.
  • Provide training to Statistics graduate students in statistical practice, through participation in the consulting process. Statistical Consulting Seminar (ST641)
  • Through its Statistics Computing Support group , assist NC ARS researchers with the management, translation and analysis of data created on different platforms and in different storage formats.
  • Subject to the availability of resources, provide consulting and collaborative services to the entire NCSU research community.

If your college does not financially support the Statistical Consulting Service, but your faculty and students do find these services valuable, please consider lending your support. To discuss ways to support the applied statistics enterprise on this campus, contact Head, Department of Statistics
