At The Analysis Factor, we know you’re an expert at what you do — and that it’s impossible to be an expert at everything.

That’s why we come alongside you and offer our specific expertise in statistics, statistical software, data analysis, and data communication when you need it most.

All our consultants meet as a group several times a week to discuss active projects, so you’re getting expert guidance from a variety of perspectives and specialties.

Our mission is to navigate you from messy data to clear insights. We are experts at understanding the challenges in your data, determining the best statistical approach to answer your research question, and communicating the results, assumptions, and nuances of the analysis so you have a clear picture of your data and your results.

Our goal is to provide professional researchers, students, and academicians with the support you need to accurately analyze your data, interpret the statistics, and understand your results.

How Hourly Statistical Consulting Works

  1. Fill out a New Project Questionnaire.
    Tell us about your research and where specifically you need assistance. You can specify whether you want hourly consulting or to outsource a statistics task.
  2. Get on a Web Meeting
    We will review your information and get in touch to set up an initial online meeting with your consultant. There is no charge for this first meeting or commitment. Its purpose is for you to feel out if we are a good fit for you.
  3. Get Started!
    Once we’ve identified which consultant best suits your needs, you will pay for a time retainer to use within one year.

All consulting is done remotely via web meeting so we can share screens, draw, write, and record the session for your later review. Other arrangements can be made if necessary.
