Our mission and expertise areas
Part of the SCS's mission is to serve as a liason between Ohio State faculty and staff and the Department of Statistics faculty. We work to facilitate collaborative and consultative (paid) partnerships between these groups. Our faculty have expertise in all areas of statistics, including
- Analysis of Variance
- Bayesian modeling
- Causal inference
- Clinical trials
- Decision theory
- Experimental design
- Hierarchical/multilevel modeling
- Multivariate analysis
- Network analysis
- Observational studies
- Spatial statistics
- Statistical/machine learning
- Survival analysis
- Time-series analysis
- Quality control
At this point in time, we are unable to administer surveys and design databases.
The SCS is an earnings unit and can bill clients for our services. All paid work is performed under contract and is billed at an hourly rate. The rates charged by the SCS vary according to the individual performing the work and the total size of the project.
The following are our rates for OSU faculty and staff:
- Co-Directors and Statistics Faculty (PhD-level): $195/hour
- Junior Consultant (MS-level): $125/hour
- Business Manager: $50/hour
For very large projects, the SCS offers discounted rates. In addition, it is possible to hire a statistics graduate student for an entire semester.
