Please feel free to reach out to us at if you have any questions about our consultation team or if you're looking for statistical or methodological assistance that doesn't fit into any of the categories below.

Individual Statistical Consultation

Our individual statistical consultation services are designed to help you work through questions related to a specific project or manuscript. Examples of these kinds of services include, but are not limitted to, assistance with weighing the pros and cons of different analytic methods, support in running analyses (i.e., data formatting/organization, debugging code, etc.), help interpreting results, and providing guidance in writing up results and interpretation of analyses. While we are available to assist with honors theses, Masters theses, and dissertations, we do not provide consultation for undergraduate or graduate course assignments.
These services are provided on an hourly basis with rates ranging from $30-$140/hr depending on consultant. Our current consultation team includes advanced graduate students and faculty; all consultation services provided by  advanced graduate students are supervised by Dr. Brian Baucom. Please see our staff page for information about our current consultants.
To schedule a consultation, please send an email to with the following information:
  1. A brief description of your consultation question. If you have a question about a specific statistical procedure, please let us know.
  2. Is this request related to a paper, conference, grant submission, masters thesis, or dissertation? If applicable, what is the deadline for the request?
  3. What is your title (e.g., graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, faculty, etc.) and affiliation (i.e., Department/University/company)?
We will respond to you within 3 business days to discuss your request and to schedule a consultation appointment. We will do our best to schedule your first consultation with a week of receiving your initial request but are not always able to do so.
Please note that while we are happy to help you with analyses, we are not able to run analyses for you in individual statistical consultation. Our statistical and methodological training services are designed to help you learn how to perform an analysis with which you are unfamiliar, and grant support services include performing statistical analyses for funded research studies.
We offer grant support services for behavioral health researchers at the University of Utah and other academic institutions as well as those in government and industry. Our services range from assisting with study design and statistical planning to serving as statistical consultants or primary quantitative methodologists. These services are offered on a case-by-case basis based on specific study needs and staffing availability. If we aren't able to provide the support you need, we're more than happy to try to help connect you with someone who can. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us to discuss your grant needs.
