Spotlights

Updates and current news regarding Research Consulting policies, services, and software support.

Services

We provide two types of free consulting (e-mail and in person appointments) covering statistical and mathematical questions for University of Texas System faculty, staff, and student researchers. We also provide contract consulting for longer, more in-depth projects that might benefit from having a Research Consulting member on the team. Learn how to establish a contract and what our rates for consulting are.

Documentation

We provide documentation answering many common statistical and mathematical question, including FAQs and Usage Notes. Our FAQs provide an extensive list of short answers and examples for questions that we see on a reoccurring basis. In addition to general statistical questions, we also have FAQs on several of the software packages that we support, including, SPSS, SAS, AMOS, HLM, Lisrel, Minitab, and MPlus. Our collection of mathematical FAQs is organized into pages for Matlab, Maple and Mathematica.

Usage Notes describe the process of using a specific statistical procedure with a particular software package and using software on our timesharing systems, among other topics. These documents are located in the ITS Document Rack.

Tutorials

Having problems learning a particular piece of statistical or mathematical software? We offer a series of tutorials to help provide a general introduction to various software packages. In addition to being useful documents for learning software, several of our tutorials include introductions to statistical, mathematical, and numerical analysis topics. The SPSS: Getting Started Tutorial has an introduction to regression and general linear models; the Structural Equation Modeling Using AMOS: An Introduction and Mplus for Windows: An Introduction tutorials contain an introduction to structural equation modeling, and the Getting Started With HLM for Windows has an introduction to hierarchical linear models. The Matlab tutorial uses various mathematical and numerical techniques to illustrate a broad spectrum of usage possibilities for that application, and associated Matlab scripts are available for retrieval in electronic form. Tutorials are not intended to be a substitute for a full semester course on the topic, but should help get you started.

Software

Most major statistical and mathematical software packages are available to University of Texas students, faculty, and staff through site licenses, timesharing systems, and computer labs. We provide information on how to obtain these packages and where you can use them on campus. Site licenses allow members of the university to obtain a copy of the software and require a fee that covers the cost of the media and, in some cases, a licensing fee. Timesharing systems are central servers that can be accessed by members of the university community to use software running on those systems.

We support numerous statistical, mathematical, and data analysis software packages. These include AMOS, CPLEX, HLM, IMSL Libraries, LISREL/PRELIS, Maple, Mathematica, Matlab, Minitab, Mplus, SAS, SAS/Enterprise Miner, Sample Power, S-Plus, SPSS, Stata, and SUDAAN.

Training

Do you need training in statistical or mathematical software? Discover what statistical and mathematical training resources are available on campus.

Outside Resources

We maintain several pages of links to sources of information on statistical and mathematical topics.
