Applied Statistics Centre

The statistical consulting centre at UNB is here to help you make the most of your experiments and surveys.

We offer assistance with survey and experimental design, with data summarization and with analysis of the results.

What we offer

  • Comprehensive assistance in the planning of data collection and its analysis. For best results, the centre should be engaged in the project before any data is collected.
  • Assistance with designing the survey or experiment that makes the most of your data, given available resources.
  • Assistance with summarizing and presenting the raw data.
  • Assistance with fitting models to data, with making predictions from the models and with assessing the quality of the fit.
  • Assistance with drawing scientific conclusions that take full account of the uncertainties associated with the data.
  • Explanations of statistical procedures and advice on their implementation.

Our clients

  • No charge for initial consultation nor for short projects.
  • Major research projects, to be negotiated. We usually ask to be included in the research grant and/or academic credit.
  • Students should complete this form and bring it to the first meeting. To understand the relevant project better, both supervisor and graduate student are requested to attend the first meeting. Supervisors will receive email notification of consultations.

To make an appointment email Tariqul Hasan

Initial Consultation $400, includes:

  • Reading background material we ask you to send us in advance
  • One hour consultation
  • Written report on the above

Further work

  • Rates set on circumstances, size of job, etc.

Short courses

ASC fees are used to support statistics education, via the Applied Statistics Centre Prizes for students in Stat 3083 and Stat 3093.
