Welcome to Statistical Consulting and Collaborative Research Unit

The Statistical Consulting and Collaborative Research Unit (SCCR) at the University of Waterloo is the unit through which the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science provides statistical advice to those working on research problems.

The faculty and staff associated with the Statistical Consulting  and Collaborative Research Unit will be pleased to help with:

  1. Designing experiments, surveys, and other studies.
  2. Monitoring intermediate stages of long-term projects.
  3. Analyzing data, and interpreting results.
  4. Contacting an expert in the particular area of statistics or mathematics which you wish to use.
  5. Arranging a presentation on a statistical topic.

Why not see us before you start your experiment or survey? The incorporation of statistical principles into your design may well save time and money, and ultimately lead to much more clearly defined conclusions.

We will be glad to help!
