What is Data Services?

Data Services helps you find and access data, primarily numeric.  Data Services makes selected software available, purchases data sets, hold occasional workshops on data topics, and helps users with databases and data archives that Rutgers has subscriptions and membership to, such as ICPSR.

Data Services is not a statistical consulting service and can neither perform analysis for you, nor advise on correct analysis techniques.  But Data Services will get you to the data!
