Short Courses

Statistical Consulting Service (SCS) offers short courses on various aspects of statistics and statistical computing, including regular introductions to the SPSS and SAS statistical packages three times a year (Fall, Winter, and Summer). Recent course offerings have addressed factor analysis, structural equation modeling, graphical methods for categorical data, introduction to the R programming language, and mixed models.

The Statistical Consulting Service maintains a regular schedule of office hours during the academic year. The Service primarily serves the York University community; for others, consultation is available on a fee-for-service basis. Please go to the Institute’s SCS website to make appointments online with SCS consultants.

Announcement: Spring Seminar Series 2018

The Institute’s Spring Seminar Series, originally scheduled for the end of April and much of May 2018, has been CANCELLED.

The on-going labour dispute at the University has meant that our original schedule is now not possible.

There is a possibility that we will run some of our Seminars in the Fall.  Please visit our web-site for further announcements.

We apologise for the inconvenience for our many participants.
