Statistical support for people writing grant proposals
Statistical support for people writing grant proposals
I can help you obtain funding by providing statistical support
What statistics should I use?
You've got an idea for a grant. You've decided on a topic and have some idea of your research questions and hypotheses. But what next? How can your hypotheses be properly tested and your research questions answered? What are the right statistical tools to use? Together, we can figure it out. Maybe it's regression (but what kind?) Maybe it's ttests. ANOVA. Or maybe it's something you've never heard of such as cluster analysis or factor analysis or a multilevel model. I know about these methods and I can help you figure out which one is right for you. All this can help you complete the "Statistical Analysis" section of your grant proposal.How many subjects do I need?
Many funders require a power analysis with any submission. This isn't as onerous as you may think, and it's really of benefit to you, too. Too few subjects and you won't find statistical significance even if your theory is correct. But if you try for too many subjects you waste time and money. Power analysis helps you decide on the right number of subjects.. I can help you do it.How can I write a good short analysis section
Many funders (including government agencies) have strict page limits on submissions. But, as someone (perhaps Mark Twain) once said "I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead". It's hard to write a good short proposal and part of the process is thinking a lot beforehand about what you want to do. If you contact me early in the grant writing process, I can help you formulate your ideas and come up with statistical tools that can do what you want. And they can often be explained quite tersely.ABOUT PETER FLOM

Client Testimonials

Peter assisted me enormously when the time came to analyze the complex data I had collected for my dissertation. He was clearly an expert in his field, as well as quite down to earth. He engaged in conversation with me in order to figure out what relationships I was interested in analyzing, and helped me to figure out which tests to run. He allowed me to be an integral part of the development of our data analysis action plan, rather than simply taking over and doing it his way without discussion or consultation. I really appreciated his approach, as it allowed me to be a true participant in the analysis of my dissertation data. I would recommend Peter Flom without reservation to any doctoral student in need of assistance in analyzing their data set.
