The Research Design and Analysis (RDA) Unit provides data analytic resources and collaborative services to associated investigators with the goal of enhancing the validity, rigor, and impact of their research. The unit provides research design consultation to investigators regarding hypothesis development, study design, sample size determination and appropriate measurement techniques during research proposal development.
The RDA unit’s statisticians assist researchers in conducting advanced statistical analyses and disseminating the results of these analyses.
The unit’s data management activities include database design, data-collection instrument design, automated data collection and scoring of instruments, data tracking procedures, and data validation/quality control. The unit offers data storage, access, security, and confidentiality.
Graphic design services include poster design and printing, and custom graphic development for both print and electronic publishing.
RDA employs three Ph.D.-level statisticians who conduct advanced analyses such as hierarchical linear modeling, structural equation modeling and time series analysis. The full time database manager and graphic designer offer extensive professional experience to develop the best solutions for your data and research needs.
