Welcome to the Statistical Consulting and Survey Research Unit

Serving the University of Waterloo community and beyond since 1999

The Statistical Consulting and Survey Research Unit (SCSRU) is a joint unit at the University of Waterloo comprised of the former Statistical Consulting and Collaborative Research Unit and the Survey Research Centre. The SCSRU offers the same services as its predecessors and is a cornerstone to excellence in survey research and statistical analysis at the University of Waterloo.

The SCSRU provides statistical advice to those working on research problems, in addition to offering a full suite of survey research services that include survey methodology and sampling frame consultation, questionnaire design, programming, data collection (telephone, web, mail, face-to-face, and mixed mode surveys), sample weights, and data analysis. SCSRU services support clients to get accurate, meaningful results.

Our mission is to provide high-quality statistical advice and survey research services to the University of Waterloo Community and external institutions and organizations through our two service streams: Statistical Consulting and Survey Research.

Survey Programming in Qualtrics

Learn how to use Qualtrics to create and launch a survey. The goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of the whole process along with some hands-on exercises. The workshop will start with instruction on how to build a survey, then will cover getting it ready for the field, and finish with showing users how to distribute, monitor, and extract their data.

Registration is free to all students, faculty and staff at the University of Waterloo.
