Consultancy services

There are several experts involved in statistical data processing consultancy in CAST. As one part of CAST, the Research Stats Service TUPA provides services on a fee basis. CAST can also offer some consultancy advice using its own resources. Moreover, CAST can utilize the so-called Consultancy support team, which consists of our university’s prime experts in statistics and data analysis.

To ensure the high quality of data analysis, we strongly recommend that statistical expertise be utilized already during the project planning and especially before the data collection phase.

If you need help or advice with your data analyses, please contact TUPA (
