Data Workshop Archive
 
Did you miss a workshop? No problem! Past workshop materials are available on our website. Most of them are suitable for self-study and all are free to download. And if something in the workshop just isn't clicking for you, contact the instructor and set up a one-on-one appointment for some personal instruction!

StatLab Consultations

Need help with, or just another set of eyes for, your data analysis or visualization? Maybe your data needs some serious wrangling or your R script isn't working? UVa Library’s StatLab offers free statistical and data science consulting to students, faculty and staff engaged in research. Some examples of recent consultations include:

  • Assisting a PhD candidate with creating and polishing an effect plot in R
  • Helping an economics undergrad with data wrangling in Stata
  • Conducting a power and sample size analysis for a research scientist
  • Getting a graduate student up and running with R
  • Advising a faculty member on how to implement a model-based cluster analysis

If you’d like some help with your research data analysis, email us and let’s schedule an appointment! statlab@virginia.edu

Data around Grounds

Looking for more good talks and opportunities to learn about data across Grounds? So are we! We're looking  forward to the upcoming discussion with Virginia Eubanks, author of Automating Inequality: How High-Tech Tools Profile, Police, and Punish the Poor. Hosted by the School of Data Science, the talk is Friday, December 6  from 3:30 to 5:00 in Nau Hall 101. Maybe we'll see you there!
