Center for Statistical Analysis
The Center for Statistical Analysis provides professional statistical consulting support and training to Temple faculty and researchers, as well as external clients in the business, industry, and government sectors. The Center provides assistance on the design of experiments and surveys, statistical analysis of data, interpretation of analysis, as well as advice on appropriate software. The Center accomplishes its objectives by providing statistical support to researchers and Centers within Temple, collaborating on interdisciplinary grant proposals, designing studies and data analysis projects for external clients in business and government, and organizing workshops and conferences.
The Center’s consultants provide collaborative support in the planning, design, and management of research projects. It is recommended that researchers contact the Center early in the planning stages of their project to establish a collaborative relationship and ensure the highest quality results. The Center also welcomes faculty and researchers who have already collected data and would like assistance including the most effective analysis for answering their research questions.
Over the past few years, the Center for Statistical Analysis has organized several workshops and conferences on a variety of topics:
Data Analysis using R and SAS
Three-day workshop for Global Indemnity Group employees on data analysis and statistical computing using R and SAS software at their Bala Cynwyd location.
Design and Analysis of Experiments with Applications
Two-day workshop on the design and analysis of experiments with applications at the Fox School of Business. Faculty, researchers, and graduate students from the Schools of Pharmacy, Engineering, Health, Tourism and Business attended this highly successful workshop.
Design and Analysis of Experiments in Engineering
Four-day workshop for Asahi Glass Company on the design and analysis of experiments. This comprehensive workshop covered an array of designs with applications in engineering including block designs, factorial designs, nested and hierarchical designs.
Conference on High Dimensional Statistics
Held in collaboration with the Department of Statistics, topics included High-Dimensional Statistical Inference, Spatio-Temporal Data Applications, and Computational Algorithms for High-Dimensional Data. Well known researchers from Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, UC Berkeley, and Michigan spoke at the one-day conference.
Statistics Methodology in Dentistry
A workshop on statistical methodology in dentistry organized for Dental School graduate students and residents on topics requested by the Graduate Education office at Temple’s School of Dentistry.
Choice Based Conjoint Analysis – Models and Designs
A workshop on choice based conjoint analysis and discrete choice experiments with applications. Topics included Pareto Optimal Designs, Availability Designs, and Sequential Experiments.
Statistical Methodology in Medicine and Biological Sciences
Held at the Temple University School of Medicine. Eminent researchers from industry and academia spoke on topics such as Genome-wide Association Studies, Biomedical Network Estimation, and Modern Techniques for Testing Large Number of Hypotheses.
