Statistically Speaking Membership Program

YOUR MOST PRESSING STATISTICAL QUESTIONS…


ANSWERED.

Are you tired of “winging it” and ready to build a storehouse of real statistical knowledge to further your career?

 

Get started for as low as $41/month (for an annual membership) — Cancel at anytime.

“It is so reassuring as a member to know that you have an expert to turn to when you have a question.”
Lara Zwarun, Statistically Speaking member

 


THINK ABOUT THE STRUGGLES YOU’RE HAVING WITH ANALYZING YOUR RESEARCH RESULTS.

You could spend hours struggling to find answers on your own by scouring the Internet…

Or you could try getting (possibly misleading) advice from colleagues who are just as lost as you are (or who act like they have it all figured out, and see your question as a sign of your incompetence)…

If you’re lucky, your institution has a statistical consultant you can ask (if you can understand their answer)…

Or maybe you give up and dig into your pockets to hire a consultant for an answer that would take them all of five minutes to answer…

Or you could just “go it alone” and hope for the best…

Now imagine that instead of the struggle, you could spend a few minutes posting a message in a supportive, discreet membership group… and within a day you receive direct, specific feedback from statisticians who LIVE this stuff and know exactly what to recommend.

How much time, money, and stress would that save you?

On second thought… don’t answer that. Instead, keep reading!


What is Statistically Speaking?

Statistically Speaking is the Internet’s #1 community where researchers like you can get practical, relevant answers to all your statistical questions and grow in your statistical literacy with the support of professional statisticians.

Led by Karen Grace-Martin, Statistically Speaking empowers you to FINALLY understand statistics in a way that makes YOU a better researcher.

 

“I found it very useful to have someone to talk to about the problems I was trying to figure out, in an informal kind of setting. Not sure what I’d have done without it!”
— Paul Grayson, Statistically Speaking member

 

 

Hi, I’m Karen Grace-Martin, your statistics mentor.

As president and founder of The Analysis Factor, I’ve been supporting researchers like you through their statistical planning, analysis, and interpretation since 1997.

With master’s degrees in both applied statistics and social psychology, I’ve been honored to work with everyone from undergrad honors students to Ivy League professors, and from non-profit evaluators to corporate data analysts.

After seeing so many smart people get nervous, uncertain, and downright phobic about analyzing their data, I made it my mission to remove the barrier between research and statistical analysis.

I want to banish the “stats speak” that makes eyes glaze over, and instead explain statistical terminology in plain English.

My goal is to help you improve your statistical literacy so you can bring your important research results into the light with confidence.

 

“Karen has a talent of giving explanations that make tricky concepts very clear.”
— Kim Bennett, Statistically Speaking member

 

What’s in Statistically Speaking?

Monthly Training Webinars

Statistically Speaking features an expert on a LIVE webinar every month to bring you the most valuable topics and information in statistics and data analysis. Forget the jargon, though — each and every presentation is conversational, informal, and in language non-statisticians can understand.

We pride ourselves on presenting topics that are applicable to a wide range of research areas and statistical methodologies, and that will help YOU make the right decisions as you analyze your data.

Past topics include:

  • Communicating Statistical Results to Non-Statisticians with Kim Love, PhD
  • Dealing Effectively with Small Sample Sizes with Audrey Schnell, PhD
  • Communicating Statistical Results: When to Use Tables vs. Graphs to Tell the Data’s Story with Isabella Ghement, PhD

Each month you’re a member, you can attend the featured webinar LIVE. Of course, the session is recorded and available to stream on demand as long as you’re a member.

Plus, all members get immediate access to our complete library of over FOUR DOZEN past topic webinars.

 

“Great topics and handouts — the material is accessible even if you can’t make it to the webinar.”
— Statistically Speaking member

 

Weekly Live Q&A Webinars

Every week, members have access to a LIVE Q&A webinar where you can get the benefit of expert insight into your specific statistical challenges, questions, and issues — in a private, supportive environment.

We know it can be hard to ask statistical questions. It seems like you’re either greeted with a blank stare (“I have no idea what you’re talking about…”) or a superior smirk (“You don’t know THAT?!”).

But our Statistically Speaking experts LOVE to help smart researchers like you understand the finer points of their data, and what it all means. So we encourage you to ASK AWAY!

Like our monthly training webinars, the weekly Q&A sessions are available live, or as a streamed recording, on-demand as long as you remain a member.

 

“The Q&A sessions are a real bonus. An opportunity to clarify what to do in different circumstances.”
— Lynda Bavin, Statistically Speaking member

 

Statistically Speaking Community

Got a burning question that just can’t wait for the Q&A call? Never fear, the private forum is at your fingertips.

Ask any question related to your research, data analysis, or statistics, with the complete confidence that your posts won’t show up in Google searches or forwarded in an email chain around your department.

This is a PRIVATE, CONFIDENTIAL community where you can ask anything about statistics, without fear! (You can even cloak your identity to remain 100% anonymous, if you so choose.)

 

“I especially like the forum that enables asking specific questions.”

— Statistically Speaking member

 


Meet Your Team

In addition to Karen Grace-Martin, you’ll receive support from:

 

Audrey Schnell, PhD

Audrey first realized her love for research and, in particular, data analysis when she made a career move from clinical psychology to dementia research. She has particular expertise in biostatistics, including inter-rater reliability, case control studies, and linear models, and uses SAS and SPSS.
Mentoring researchers in Statistically Speaking brings together Audrey’s two passions: conducting research and helping people.

 

Jeff Meyer, MPA, MBA

For Jeff Meyer, being an effective stats mentor takes more than just a knowledgeable and logical approach to analyzing data. You have to also enjoy working with people – and most importantly, care about their success.

Jeff is the go-to resource for Statistically Speaking members working with Stata’s multiple imputation model for missing data. He’s also well-versed in confidence intervals and effect sizes. Jeff’s main areas of focus include multivariate, logistic, mixed models, truncated, censored, Poisson, and negative binomial regression.

 

Paige Chant

Paige Chant, our program manager for Statistically Speaking, supports our members every step of the way. She works behind-the-scenes to manage program logistics and coordinate outreach to members.

Whatever you need, Paige is only a click or a call away.

 


What Other Options Do You Have?

If you were to hire a statistical consultant to analyze your data, it could run you thousands of dollars. And next time around, you’d be in the same situation — with a pile of results and no idea what it means.

You could ask a colleague — if there is one who can help! Or try to piece together an answer from an informal online group… but sometimes you don’t get the answer, and sometimes you get multiple answers — all of which conflict with each other.

If you were to try to figure it all out on your own, the time investment and your lack of confidence in your results might prevent you from making the progress toward publication you want and need.

So what’s left?

Statistically Speaking… designed for you — the researcher without a statistical consulting budget or a degree in statistics.

We empower smart researchers like you in your professional development, giving you the statistical skills and confidence you need — without the huge price tag.

By offering this support in a group environment, we can reduce the cost and increase the accessibility.

BIGGEST STATISTICAL OBSTACLES FOR RESEARCHERS

These are the 3 most common problems that I hear from researchers in regard to their data analysis:

NO ONE TO ASK

There’s no one to ask within your institution…

Or the people who are there make it very difficult to admit you aren’t 100 percent sure about analyzing your data…

Or you ask multiple people and get conflicting results.

You want to get this right, but asking that one colleague comes with a high price tag, so you’d rather figure out a way that doesn’t involve going to the Know-It-All.

DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW

If you’re working on your dissertation, or you’re coming back to quantitative research after some time away, it can be difficult to translate classes in statistics into real-world data analysis… or to get caught up in the “new” trends that you’re expected to have mastered.

ALL OR NOTHING

Either you have to puzzle all this out on your own, or hire a consultant to take the whole thing off your hands. But if you pass off your analysis to someone else, you never learn, so the next time you need to interpret — or defend — your results, you’re in the same boat. So you’re left having to choose “all or nothing,” and neither one feels quite right.

Want to know how to banish these three obstacles?

You got it… Statistically Speaking!

 

“Just wanted to thank you for your help in the webinar last month. I had some questions about mean reversion — I seemed to understand it less the more I thought about it. Anyway, we talked it through in the webinar, and it greatly helped my understanding of the topic.”
— Paul Grayson, Statistically Speaking member

“I really liked Audrey’s presentation today. My professors always threw caveats into their lectures and said that statistics was more about thinking than math. She demonstrated that today, and I was very happy with the discussion… [It] makes the process much less mechanical, and more about real problem solving and thought.”
— Jane Yank, Statistically Speaking member
