STATCOM Chicago - Pro Bono Statistical Consulting

Statistics in the Community (STATCOM) offers graduate statistics students' expertise - free of charge - to local businesses and organizations, for the purpose of creating a culture of service while engaging students in consulting and leadership work.

Purdue University started STATCOM in 2001, and today branches extend nationwide.  STATCOM Chicago was launched at DePaul University in 2008, and today we continue to serve clients in the Chicagoland area with the help of students from IIT, UIC, and Rosalind Franklin University.

How can STATCOM Chicago help your company or organization?

We provide assistance in a wide variety of areas, including:

  • Design and analysis of surveys or studies
  • Use of data to model a process
  • Multiple regression analysis
  • Factor Analysis
  • Time series analysis
  • Forecasting
  • Graphical methods for visualizing and interpreting data

A final report, and, if requested, a presentation will be made when the project is complete.

STATCOM Chicago ensures the accuracy and confidentiality of your project

Projects approved for analysis by STATCOM will be assigned to team led by a second-year graduate statistics student.  An Advisory Board consisting of Statistics Professors and Professional Statisticians is available for reviewing the work produced.

A confidentiality agreement is available upon request, allowing you to restrict discussion of the project to only the STATCOM group and the Advisory Board.
