This blog is for doctoral students to share stories about how they handled the statistical aspects of their dissertation, the experiences they had, and what they learned in the process. For example, at what point during the dissertation process should you start thinking about the statistical aspects of the study? Is it ethical for a doctoral student to hire a statistical consultant? Were you encouraged by your mentor to hire a statistical consultant?

My name is Steve Creech. I have a Master’s degree in probability and statistics and over 17 years of experience as a statistical consultant. I created my own statistical consulting business, Statistically Significant Consulting, LLC, specifically to help doctoral students with the statistical aspects of their dissertation. I offer statistics consulting to doctoral students on a fulltime basis, 7 days/week.
