Statistician help for dissertation

Quantitative Dissertation Statistics Help

Statistics is a mathematical science that is used for data analysis, interpretation, explanation, and presentation of the data. Doctoral candidates require quantitative dissertation statistics help because professional statisticians provide the expertise needed to effectively conduct the research, analyze the data and present the results. As a student, you are not a mathematical statistician, and hiring a quantitative dissertation consultant allows you to be an expert in your field without learning to be an expert in ours.

Statistics Solutions provides quantitative dissertation consulting that includes help from methodology to presentation of the results. The professionals at Statistics Solutions can help you with any or all of the following steps:

Research Methodology: Statistics Solutions’ quantitative dissertation help will determine the methodology for the study that you plan to conduct. For example, what should the sample size for my particular research be? Which technique should we apply to the data?

Research Design: Professional dissertation consulting will assist you in the research design phase of your research. The type of research design that you use to test your hypotheses is important for finding reliable and valid results; dissertation statistics help is needed to make this decision and to present justification for it.

Selection of the Variable: Variables are selected on the basis of the predetermined theory that is statistically tested. Statistical expertise is needed when selecting the variable.

Discover How We Assist Conducting Quantitative Results

We bring together statistical expertise, technology, and a teaching attitude to complete your quantitative results chapter that meets your school’s rubric.

Sample Size Calculation and Sample Size Justification: Statistical expertise and help is needed when selecting the sample size. If the sample size is small, the statistical test will not give accurate results. If the sample size is too large, then it will be more time consuming as well as costly. Dissertation statistics help can be used to determine your sample size and to present justification for it.

Test Statistics: Quantitative dissertation consulting will assist in determining the test statistics for particular data and research questions. There are a number of statistical tests used for specific reasons. The professionals at Statistics Solutions are experts in a large variety of these statistical tests.

Validity and Reliability of the Statistics Results: In any research, simply conducting the analysis is not enough. Statistical expertise is needed to effectively test that the results are both reliable and valid.

Interpretation of the Results: Dissertation consulting is needed to accurately interpret the results of the research and to present these results in the appropriate format.

Help with Statistics – What We Do

We can help you formulate your research questions. Sometimes we find that breaking a research problem down into more manageable parts will enable you to fully test the problem. This leads to clearer results that can be better explained and more easily replicated.

We can help you determine what statistics you will need to test your research questions. Once the hypotheses are clearly stated, we can help you determine how to test them. We can also suggest what statistical analyses to use for sample description, assessment of extraneous factors, and testing the assumptions underlying the comparative tests you want to use. We can help you determine how to move forward with hypothesis testing if the underlying assumptions have been violated.

We can help you determine what sample size you need. Before you conduct your study, you’ll need to know how many participants to include in your study to have dependable results. We can run power analyses to determine the minimum sample size required. We can also advise you on the types of statistics you’ll need to run in the event the population you want to study is limited. We can help you think about the issues with sample size that are specific to your target population, such as attrition, and the study’s inclusionary and exclusionary criteria.

We can help you determine what variables you need to include. We usually advise our clients to include variables that can be used to describe the sample, in addition to variables that will be used to test the research questions or hypotheses. You also want to think about what other factors may have a substantial effect on the outcome you are studying. If your data collection includes these extraneous factors, you will be able to control for them when you are testing your hypotheses.

We can help you with data collection methodology. We can help you design an Excel spreadsheet and develop a codebook for data collection. If a web-based survey will be used to collect data, we can design and install the survey instrument for you. If the principal investigator will not be collecting the data, we can help you develop safeguards to insure quality control during data collection. We can advise you on what aspects of the project need to be documented, such as the time interval between pre- and post-testing. For retrospective studies, we can help you determine ways to verify the values you intend to extract.

We can help you with data management. Once you’ve collected your data, we can help you download it from the internet, and upload it into a statistics-based data file for analysis. We can help with assigning variable and value labels to make the results of statistical analysis easier to read. We can assess the amount of missing or erroneous data. In some cases we can estimate the missing values to maximize the amount of data available for analysis.

We can help you run your statistical analyses. We can help with the statistics to describe your sample, with the preliminary testing of statistical assumptions, data transformations, with testing the significance of extraneous factors, as well as with conducting the actual hypothesis testing. After we review the results together, we can suggest exploratory or post-hoc analyses to enrich your study results.

We can help you understand and write about your results. Once you have your results, we can help you understand what they mean, and what the tests do or do not tell you about your sample. Statistics can seem like a foreign language. We can help you become comfortable using that language as it applies to your results.
