Our consultants, Don Mather and Catherine Talbot, are grad students experienced in working with social science data. You can set up an appointment to meet with them remotely through Zoom. In-person consultations at IBS are available upon request, depending on consultant availability.

Don and Catherine are familiar with different statistical packages and analyses. They will do their best to answer any statistical or data management questions you have regarding social science data. Catherine and Don are both specialists in Stata, using the software to manipulate data and perform a variety of analyses, including descriptive statistics, regression, longitudinal data analysis, multilevel models, latent class analysis, and data visualization. In addition, Catherine can provide assistance with GIScience questions, such as data sources, visualization/mapping, and spatial analysis using ArcGIS, QGIS, and Python.
