Consulting in Statistics and Statistical Programming

The Odum Institute maintains a statistical consulting service, staffed by advanced graduate students, who are on call in the Odum Institute open computer laboratory (Room 295) to answer routine statistical and programming questions.

To contact the graduate student assistants, please call 919-962-2019 or e-mail odum.lab.consultants@unc.edu.
