Statistics Online Support (SOS)

Resources for mathematical and statistical packages compiled by our SDS consultants


The Statistics Online Support (SOS) resource platform is an interactive, decision tree based site that asks users a series of questions that guide them to the appropriate statistical technique. The site provides detailed examples, alongside embedded tutorial videos showing how to conduct the analysis by hand calculation or using the software packages R and Excel.

The site is designed for undergraduate and graduate students who want to boost the quality of their quantitative analyses when working on research projects, journal article submissions, or dissertations.

 Use SOS:

  • As a tool to determine the appropriate statistical analysis for your data
  • To find more information about a specific analysis including the statistical assumptions to check, a description of the test
  • To watch embedded videos that guide you through the analysis process
