The statistical consulting unit StaBLab

The statistical consulting unit STABLAB was founded in 1997 and is part of the Institute of Statistics, LMU (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München). Its aim is scientific consultation on statistical problems from diverse disciplines such as economics, engineering, sociology, psychology, biology or ecology. Empirical research projects in these areas provide opportunities for a mutually beneficial and interdisciplinary cooperation. On the one hand the problem-adequate application of statistics for the respective issues are of great importance. On the other hand, empirical studies are widely used, whose fruitful analysis is reflected in the field of statistics in research and teaching.

Our consulting service is for companies, research institutions and, in particular, students and researchers of the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich. For the latter our service is free of charge within reasonable limits. If you would like to take advantage of our service, please fill in the registration form (in German)  or contact Pia Oberschmidt.
