Statistical Support

The statistical support office provides a statistical consultation service to all registered postgraduate students. The service is meant to provide guidance on selection and utilisation of appropriate methods for collection and statistical analysis of data. The unit also facilitates statistics workshops to empower students with the knowledge required for the different phased of their research.

The support provided by the office covers all phases of the research:

  • Research design
  • Data collection
  • Data capturing
  • Data analysis and interpretation

“To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post-mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of”. Ronald Fisher


The statistical support office offers the following workshops:

  • Basic to advanced statistics workshops
  • Practical SPSS workshops
