I have worked as a statistical advisor privately and in university settings since 1995. In that role, I?ve advised and assisted students and staff and others in successfully completing research reports and other publications, including a variety of post-graduate theses (i.e., Honours, Masters, EdD, PhD).
I charge a fee of $80 per hour to students, and $100 per hour to other individuals (project rates by negotiation). However, I don?t charge anything for a preliminary consultation to establish what needs to be done and how much that would cost.
I can advise and assist in converting preliminary Excel- and online-survey based datasets into SPSS datasets and preparing these for analysis, including merging datasets, data cleansing and checking. I have run workshops on this topic in university and other settings.
I can advise and assist in the reporting of descriptive and inferential analyses (tables, figures, and text). I can provide guidance in the reporting of outcomes based on ANOVA, MANOVA, ANCOVA, and MANCOVA procedures, with a guide to reporting MANOVA downloaded frequently from my website (grimbeek.com.au). I can also provide guidance in the reporting of outcomes based on SPSS factor analysis procedures plus a range of regression procedures, including the use of a modelling approach to identify parsimonious models based on complex sets of predictor variables.
I can advise and assist in using AMOS to construct and report models that confirm hypothesised scale structures and regression models, including complex models with mediating/moderating variables and multiple outcomes, including reporting the relative strength of direct vs. indirect pathways.
I favour Leximancer for qualitative text analysis for reasons that include its ability to analyse large amounts of text with ease and at speed, a thesaurus based on the dataset to be analysed, and, finally, tables, graphs and text that can be pasted directly into MS Word to produce instant reports of ...read more
