September 23, 2011 under CANR News

The Department of Food and Resource Economics (FREC) in the University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) has announced the opening of the Statistical Laboratory (StatLab) for the fall semester.

StatLab provides statistical consulting services to graduate students, faculty, staff and researchers throughout the University, as well as non-university agencies and companies. It will be open Mondays from 1-5 p.m. and Tuesdays from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. in room 201 or 214 Townsend Hall.

The laboratory is staffed with a director and an experienced graduate student as well as an advisory committee, consisting of University statisticians, research methodologists from various disciplines and subject matter specialists from industry, to provide additional support.

The goal of the StatLab is to train students of the Statistics Program to interact effectively with investigators from a variety of disciplines, to enhance the quality of experimental and other research at the University by providing high-quality statistical advice and to encourage collaborative research between statisticians and investigators from other disciplines both within and outside UD.

Researchers are strongly encouraged to visit the StatLab prior to collecting their data or attempting to conduct an analysis. Initial consultation lasts one hour maximum and is free for UD personnel. Subsequent consultation will require fees. StateLab reserves the right to charge the client for additional work.

Statistical consultation is available only by appointment. Users are requested to submit a brief written statement of the problem and file a form prior to scheduling an appointment. The form is available online.

To schedule an appointment and to file the forms, visit this website, send email to or send a fax 302-831-6243.
