DSA Data Support Services

The DSA group can help you put your data into a usable form. 

We can help with the following issues – and more! 

  • Transfer of data files from one statistical package to another
  • Getting text data into a statistical package
  • Figuring out what one is looking at with a dataset

Should you require help with data entry, contact Exam and Research Data Services Office.

Support for Statistics Course Instructors

Attention Statistics Course Faculty: You may be interested in obtaining some simulated data for your class, i.e., data for in-class demonstrations, homework assignments, etc.  The DSA staff members maintain a simulated population from which random samples can be drawn upon request. Learn more about that population by visiting the page linked below.
