About Lab

The Research and Statistics Lab conducts research aims with particular emphasis on the development and application of innovative statistical methods. DDU Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur, U.P., India is a famous university. It is planning for a Research and Statistics Lab committed to the success of its students, with more than 100 undergraduate programs, graduate and PhD programs. The university’s just-right size, expert faculty, and tradition of research and hands-on learning gives students exceptional opportunities and a personalized education. Our faculty and students are experts in research synthesis methods (i.e., systematic reviewing and meta-analysis) that can be used for assessing and appraising research evidence in the field of prevention science.

Consultants can provide the following Permitted Services:

• Recommendations on the structure of research questions.
• References and recommendations on the recording of data.
• Recommendations on data management and data management software.
• References and recommendations on research design and data collection.
• References and recommendations on data analysis techniques.
• Recommendations and “help” documentation on data analysis software.

Consultation Could be provided by Lab

The Research and Statistic lab is committed to providing DDUGU faculty, staff, and students with free consultation on research and survey design, data collection and management, statistical analysis, and evaluation. Research consultants have extensive training in applied statistics and research methods, and can offer advice for both quantitative and qualitative research. The Research Consulting Lab also strives to provide appropriate introductory training with common data analysis software. It may provide following services
• Consulting Services
• Consulting services include advice and training:
• Designing studies and surveys
• Selecting methods of data collection
• Selecting methods of data storage and management
• Selecting and implementing statistical analyses
Research consultants are available on a drop-in basis or by appointment. For assistance with research projects, clients should anticipate approximately 2-4 weeks of interaction with consultants, exact duration dependent on the scale of the project. What to Bring • Research questions
• For survey research, bring a copy of your questionnaire
• Description of variables
• Conceptual description
• Operational definition (how they were/will be measured)
• Data file
• In raw form
• Excel file is preferred
After Data Collection
• Data cleaning and management
• It could be time consuming
• Preliminary analysis
• Descriptive statistics
• Psychometrics (e.g., reliability and factor analysis)
• Statistical analysis
• Appointments may be needed

Overview of Basic Requirement for Computer Labs and Virtual Teaching Lab (VTL)

The most important resource is computer resources. Each member (faculty, staff, visitors and students) would be having a dedicated PC with either two or one large flat-screen monitor. The PCs would be connected to internet with a number of printers available to access. The interconnected departments would be having a Linux simulation cluster and a Windows virtual teaching lab available as additional resources. Each computing resource would be having SAS 9.4, R, and Matlab available on them. Many of the computers would be attached via network attach storage to allow for the storage of files to work seamlessly between different computers. Most computers would be having i7 or equivalent processors and a minimum of 16GB of RAM available. The research and statistics lab aims to maintain its infrastructure in dedicated server rooms with restricted access and battery backups. The computer data would be backed up to maintain data integrity in the event of possible hardware failure.
