Hourly Statistical Consulting

Need ongoing support to complete your research project efficiently and accurately?

Hourly consulting provides the perfect blend of flexibility and expertise — without the frustration of going it alone. Your consultant becomes your team member as you complete, analyze, and interpret your data.

What You Get

1. Ongoing consulting — statistical guidance and advice — in the form of web meetings or emails. Web meetings provide a lot of functionality, such as sharing screens, coding together, running analyses, reviewing output, etc., while talking via phone or computer audio.

2. Web meeting recordings. Your consultation sessions are recorded (with screenshot video) for you to download and review as many times as you like.

3. A private, password-protected account on our project management system, Basecamp. Basecamp is a secure, web-based location for storing files, sending messages, and keeping track of your hours used. This is where you can access your consultation recordings, any programs we write, or output we create.

You can use it to securely share with us your data, research proposal, or anything else that will help us understand your research. It keeps your entire project with us in one organized place.

How It Works

Step #1:
Download a copy of our New Project Questionnaire for Hourly Statistical Consulting. Fill out the questionnaire and email it back to us. We’ll use the information you provide to assign a consultant to work with you whose availability and expertise best matches your project’s needs.

Step #2:
Your consultant will reach out to you to schedule a quick call to answer any questions about our services. This free call is also an opportunity to ensure your consultant is a good fit for your project needs.

Step #3:
After the meeting, our consulting coordinator will send you all the info you need to get started, including how to submit payment, schedule your first consultation, and access your private Basecamp account.

Payment Details and Pricing

Hourly consulting is billable in 15-minute increments. Most people use the retainer entirely for meetings, but you can also use this time for us to review syntax, help you set up a data set, or give you feedback on a proposal.

The retainer can be charged to a credit card or PayPal with our secure shopping cart. If your grant or department requires you to pay by check or receive invoices, just contact us to get set up.

Consulting time includes any time your consultant spends on your questions, including meeting time, emails, and researching answers. Quick emails that take fewer than 5 minutes to answer will not be billed.

Consulting rates start at $700 for a block of 4 hours.
