Contract Services

What is a Contract Project?

Unlike a consulting meeting where our consultants advise you on statistical methods, contract projects are projects where our consultants will do the statistical analysis for you. Our staff statisticians have extensive experience working on contract projects in academia and industry, and are able to provide long term support for these projects. Note, all contract work is performed by a staff statistician.

This service is available to clients currently affiliated Cornell. A graduate student requesting a contract project will need to have the approval of their advisor.

The type of contract services we offer include:

  • basic statistical analysis
  • analysis of survey data
  • creating graphs and data visualization
  • complex statistical analysis and modeling
  • producing reports with detailed interpretation
  • writing reproducible syntax/command files
  • providing comprehensive, long-term follow-up

Contract Fees

Needs, availability, and costs of this service are discussed on a project-by-project basis. The rate for contract work provided by CSCU is $85/hr for projects from units that financially support CSCU. For all other clients within Cornell the rate is $150/hr.

For further details contact Lynn Johnson at or fill out the contract request form and one of our staff statisticians will contact you.
