Statistical Computing

Statistical Computing

"Overview of Statistical Consulting Group and Services
The statistical computing group is a team of five UCLA staff members who help UCLA researchers with problems with statistical computing using packages such as SAS, Stata, SPSS, or S-plus/R. We offer a variety of services, including web pages on statistical computing, statistics books for loan, classes and seminars, walk-in consulting and email consulting, described in more detail below. Our goal is to simultaneously help UCLA researchers solve their problems in statistical computing while helping them enhance their skills for performing excellent research. At the same time, we are able to online resources for researchers and other consulting centers around the world.

Many find answers to their questions or expand their knowledge using our Statistical Computing web site. Our site (which has recently Surpassed Six Million Hits) has over 3000 pages and a search engine that searches 25,000+ pages, but allows you to perform focused searches restricted to one or more statistical packages. We also have a library of over 300 Statistics Books that UCLA researchers can borrow, and for many of the books we have created Textbook Examples showing how to use common statistical packages to reproduce the results in the books. These resources serve as a database of knowledge both for the UCLA research community as well as the statistical consulting group."

The editors of Financial Executive sought out a few executives willing to relate their stories, with the hope that their lessons will help peers muster the courage - if and when it is needed - to take a stand and uphold ethical practices.
