About Statistical Consultation Service
The Statistical Consultation Service (STATKON) is a specialist unit in the Postgraduate School, Research and Innovation Division, University of Johannesburg. STATKON endeavors goal-orientated statistical consultation services to postgraduate students and academic staff at the University of Johannesburg.
STATKON provides support during various phases of the research journey. The specific services of STATKON include:
Research design phase – support is through review and critique of the research proposal and draft data collection instrument and provision of relevant resources. Areas we advise on include:
- Survey design and methodology
- Experimental design and methodology
- Sampling design and sample size determination
- Questionnaire design
Data collection phase – support is via hosting an online survey (competitive rates apply).
Data capture phase – we have an in-house data capture service for those who cannot capture data themselves or, for those who are doing their own data capturing, we can provide advice on appropriate structure and process.
Statistical analysis of data phase – support is through the provision of an analysis plan and conducting statistical analysis.
Should a specific request for analysis fall outside the field of our expertise, we will endeavor to refer the researcher to an expert in the specific field.
Interpretation and reporting of statistical results phase – support is through feedback meetings and the provision of relevant resources.
Our service is facilitated through one-on-one meetings and through workshops on various quantitative research methods, including workshops on how to use IBM SPSS statistical software to run different statistical procedures. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate walk-in requests for support. Services (except of support for online surveys) are FREE to postgraduate students and researchers at the University of Johannesburg.
