The Statistical Methods and Data Analytics group provides UCLA researchers with assistance in applied statistics, data analysis and statistical computing issues. Beyond being available for consultations, the group curates online resources that are widely used by researchers and statistical consulting centers around the world. Many researchers can find answers to their questions or expand their knowledge using the vast Statistical Methods and Data Analytics website. The website includes data analysis example pages introducing how to perform various statistical methods across several software platforms, annotated output pages explaining how to interpret the statistical output from the same software, and seminar pages that the group uses to teach its live seminars.  

Software Central’s product list includes a number of statistical packages available to UCLA researchers including R, the SAS Education and Analytic Suite , IBM’s SPSS Statistics Premium Campus Edition, and Stata.
