Who can use StatiCS?
The service is open to all Graduate School of Social and Behavioural Sciences PhD candidates (free of charge) and other staff members of Leiden University.

The questions can concern both methodological and/or statistical issues that can be encountered during the entire research cycle (e.g., choice of method, performance of the analysis, and interpretation). The request form will ask you to provide your substantive research question and your statistical question.
