DISM also contributes to a staffed help desk known as the Connection Bar in the Social Science Research Institute located on the second floor of Gross Hall. The Connection Bar is staffed 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on days when classes are in session. Bar experts can support analysis of survey data using tools including Excel, Matlab, MPlus, R, SAS, SPSS, and Stata and help with managing missing data and in developing linear, longitudinal multilevel, network and spatial models; during the academic year, DISM Post-doc Kyle Endres is available at the Bar at set hours or by appointment and can provide expert advice on survey design, sampling, and mode.
If you have questions about the help desk, have difficulty connecting with the desired expert, seek training in subjects not covered in the workshop series, or are interested in scheduling a workshop targeting a specific group, please contact Alexandra Cooper.
